Philip G. Schrager, DDS
Welcome to my practice! I have been a dentist since 1973, and I enjoy serving the people of our community. I have seen generations of patients grow up and start their own families. It is truly amazing to be a part of our patients' lives and to provide them with a lifetime of oral health.

Education and Continuing Education
For my dental education, I first graduated from Indiana State University with a Bachelor's of Science Degree in 1969. I then earned my DDS from the New York University College of Dentistry, graduating in 1973. Afterwards, I proudly served as a Captain in the Dental Corp at Fort Dix, NJ from July 1973 to July 1975.
In practicing dentistry for over 37 years, I have adapted to many changes in my profession. I am always learning new and improved ways to serve my patients. As a part if my continuing education, I am a charter member of the Raritan Valley Study Club. The club was founded in 1978, and I have been president of the club twice. This group continues to enhance our knowledge in an informal atmosphere. We bring in guest lecturers on a variety of subjects and present our own cases for discussion.
In addition to the study club, I am also a staff member of the R.W.J. University Hospital Dental Department, and have been attending since 1977. I have also been a member of the American Dental Association and the Middlesex County Dental Society since 1973.
In the Practice
I perform a variety of dental procedures from simple fillings to implant reconstruction. I carry out most of my own oral surgery and endodontic treatments utilizing Brassler rotary instrumentation. I appreciate that I'm able to restore the patient's teeth and gums to a happy and healthy condition.
In our practice, we constantly stress preventative care. This is essential to a lifetime of oral health, and to avoiding complex treatments or dental therapy in the future. I truly care about my patients, and I want each person to keep their teeth for life!
