Dr. LaCap and Dr. Tong, also known as the Dynamic Duo of Dentistry, have both been creating beautiful smiles through exceptional care in their Bergenfield, New Jersey, office, Washington Dental Associates, for over 22 years. They just opened a second dental office in Tappan, New york. They have created a dental experience so comfortable that they had to open a second location. Dr. LaCap and Dr. Tong first met in dental school at Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery. In fact, they were anatomy lab partners. Was it love at first sight? you’ll have to ask them.
After over 22 years of working together as dentists, they still share the same passion for creating beautiful and healthy smiles. Their shared vision for Washington Dental Associates in New Jersey and Smile More Dentistry in New york, have both materialized into an exceptional dental experience, where patients feel comfortable, well taken care of and safe.
The experience in their office and their dentistry is so exceptional that they are known as the “Mercedes Benz” of dentistry within their community. Both have appeared on NBC, CBS, ABC and FOX affiliates, as well as USA Today. Dr. LaCap is also an Amazon best-selling co-author of Secrets to Total Body Health.
Another passion they share together is for each other and their five children. Their
free time is spent volunteering in their children’s school or church. Dr. LaCap lectures at St. Pius Church and is a Girl Scout leader for her daughter’s troop. Dr. Tong is an assistant soccer coach for his two younger boys. Currently, the family’s favorite destination is Disney World.
