My philosophy is to learn as much as I can so that I give the best treatment to my patients. That means to be as conservative as I can be while preserving the health of my patients. This could mean a complete rehabilitation of the teeth to orthodontics or a simple reshaping of teeth to harmonize the bite. This Harmony or Balance is not only important to the bite but also is part of the patient’s whole health. Integrative Dental Health involves looking for the impact the body has on your teeth and all the structures of your head and neck. This includes airway, posture and structural integrity may have a direct effect on how the teeth come together and bite. If you have chipping or broken teeth, teeth that are occasionally sensitive, it may be your bite. Headaches can also be a symptom of your bite. Establishing this balance or harmony is a way to reset and calm your whole system.
We also perform emergency dentistry services that include bonding, root canals, crowns, and bridges. As a local dentist, we create lifelong relationships with our patients and their families and work to ensure that they receive treatments in a comfortable and relaxed environment. Rolando Cibischino D.M.D and our staff invite you to schedule an appointment by calling 201-204-1355 and experience why our patients think Rolando Cibischino D.M.D is the best dentist in Hackensack.
Son of Italian immigrants, I grew up in the Bronx till the age of 9. We then moved to Bergen County New Jersey. I graduated from Bergen Catholic High School and went to Duquesne University where I met the love of my life, Maureen. I graduated from New Jersey Dental School ( Now Rutgers ) in 1987 and got married during my residency at Danbury Hospital in Danbury Connecticut. We have 3 beautiful sons that are living on their own, leaving Maureen and I as empty nesters.
I worked as an associate in an office in Somerville, NJ from 1988 to 1992. In January of 1992, I started my practice here in Hackensack. I am often asked when dd I want to become a dentist? The answer is when I was eight. As a child, every 2 to 3 years, My mom, brother and I would go to Italy to spend the summer at “NONNA’s House “ in Italy. It was a great experience as a child, especially since the cultures were so different back then. There was no running water so you had a manual lever handled pump outside for water and you had to use the outhouse. ( I remember my mom yelled at me for washing my hair under the pump. She said the water was too cold and I could get pneumonia, even though it was 85 degrees outside) My uncle owned a dental lab nearby and that summer, I visited the lab and was fascinated at all the different models and gadgets. Since that time, I never looked back and I was fortunate enough to live my dream
Dentistry is a constantly evolving field, rapidly changing with more research and technology changing not only the way we see things but the way we think about how our bodies work. What makes dentistry so exciting to me is that you are always rethinking and challenging yourself to be and do better. That is why I am a lifelong learner. You can never be bored! It’s amazing to think how differently I practice now as compared to six or seven years ago. As one of my mentors would say, “ You don’t Know what you don’t know” and “ You can’t see what you don’t know.”It is so important to continue your education. As a way of giving back, teaching at Neark Beth Isreal Hospital’s General Practice Residency program has been a blessing to me. Not only do I get to teach and influence the younger minds in our profession, but I get to interact with many of my colleagues on an academic level, from which I learn from as well.
