Michelle Weddle, DDS, FAGD

Dr. Weddle’s preferred approach to dental care is holistic in nature – looking at the overall health of the patient and his or her immediate and long-term goals. Since her goal is for you to be healthy, to enjoy a beautiful smile, and for your oral health to perform exceptionally for her Watchung and Elizabeth patients.

Dr. Weddle has sought post-doctoral training in the following fields in order to provide her patients with a more diverse and personalized plan to fit their individual needs and wishes: Pediatric Dentistry, Implant Dentistry; Cosmetic Dentistry; and Orthodontics including Invisalign and Airway Dentistry. She is highly trained in Dental Sleep Medicine and Sleep Apnea Management, TMJ Treatment and Management and focuses on the reconstruction of the worn bite and dental occlusion (jaw mechanics).

Integrating these advanced dental concepts and technologies with old-world caring and compassion is the hallmark of Dr. Weddle’s practice. She is known for her down-to-earth manner and for her passion in continually improving the technical delivery of her dental care. Dr. Weddle graduated with a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from New York University College of Dentistry. In 2007, she was one of the youngest dentists to have been awarded a Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, receiving this prestigious designation before the age of 30.

Dr. Weddle continues a dental legacy that has spanned three generations, started by her grandfather and continued by both her parents. She loves spending time with her husband, Rich and their children Katie, age 18 and Matthew, age 14. She SCUBA dives and rides roller coasters whenever she can. She enjoys the intersection between health, fitness and nutrition. And following this theme,  she loves swimming, dancing (Contemporary, Latin, Country, Jazz, Modern, Belly and Bollywood), and eating!

Dr. Weddle welcomes both the young patient (as young as 6 months) and the young at heart.
