Meet the Doctors
Dr. Ira Mendelsohn
Ira Mendelsohn, DDS graduated from Penn State, then graduated early with honors from Temple University School of Dentistry.
Dr. Mendelsohn is a perfectionist and his patients’ beautiful smiles reflect this. His pursuit of perfection drives him to take countless hours of continuing education in cosmetic dentistry, occlusion and implantology. Dr. Mendelsohn began studying implantology thirty years ago under the founders of the field. He has thirty-five years of priceless hands-on experience in all phases of dentistry; during those years he has enjoyed mentoring several young dentists in the area. Dr. Mendelsohn’s patients include physicians, sports figures, celebrities, models and patients from all walks of life-anyone who wants a more beautiful, lasting smile and wants to improve their dental health. Some of those patients travel great distances to see Dr. Mendelsohn because they trust him to take the best care of their mouth. They appreciate that he listens to what they want – to their expectations of how their smile should look. Dr. Mendelsohn helps them to understand what can and cannot be done to accomplish their cosmetic goals while maintaining the function and health of their dentition.
His life long commitment to remain a leader in his field has led him to a fellowship in implantology. He loves using the newest high-tech tools, including his new CAT scan allowing proper placement of implants.
Dr. Mendelsohn’s objective has never changed in thirty-five years; to deliver the best dental work to his patients at a price they can afford. Dr. Mendelsohn is a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantology, the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry of New Jersey, as well as the Atlantic/Cape May Dental Association. He is on the board of the Atlantic Dental Foundation. (Benecare)
