About Clara M. Hyun, DMD
A graduate of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 1982, Dr. Hyun has over 25 years of experience in the field of dentistry. Awarded by the Academy of Operative Dentistry and the American Society of Dentistry for Children at graduation, her continued passion and pursuit of education keeps her up to date on the latest dental technologies and practices. While a resident at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center Dental Clinic, Dr. Hyun founded her private practice. Her goal was to provide an environment where patients feel confident knowing they receive quality service from caring doctors at a reasonable fee. With a focus in esthetic dentistry at her full-service practice, her specialties include porcelain veneers, crowns, implant restorations, and gold/porcelain onlays and inlays. Dr. Hyun’s personal approach to esthetic dentistry is to retain as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. Preserving the healthy structure of a diseased tooth is an art form which requires constant education. As a member of the R.V. Tucker Gold Study Club for over fifteen years, Dr. Hyun continuously learns new techniques for operative excellence. Highly sought after by patients for her beautiful and healthy restorations, her expertise in performing onlays and inlays saves the healthy areas of the tooth that would have otherwise been lost with the use of a crown. As an active member of the dental community Dr. Hyun is a participant of the American Dental Association, NJ Dental Association, Essex County Dental Society, R.V. Tucker Academy, and the Academy of Operative Dentistry. Each year, Dr. Hyun attends the NY Dental Meeting, Yankee Dental Meeting and meetings hosted by the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, in addition to participating in local continuing education courses. She also gives back to the community as an Assistant Clinical Professor in the restorative department at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. Outside of the office, Dr. Hyun enjoys spending time with her family. The mother of two children, Dr. Hyun has been happily married for over 25 years to her husband, a practicing cardiologist. She loves to cook and is currently taking harp lessons.
