Dr. Boris Kleyman – Top Pediatric Dentist in Fair Lawn, NJ

Dr. Boris Kleyman - Top Pediatric Dentist in Fair Lawn, NJ

Growing up, Boris Kleyman had some bad experiences at the dentist (grown-ups, maybe you can relate). But instead of avoiding the dentist for the rest of his life, Boris had a better idea: become a dentist, and deliver better dental care for kids himself!

A few years later (okay, maybe a lot of years later), Boris Kleyman is now Dr. Boris Kleyman, board-certified pediatric dentist and co-owner, with his wife Dr. Denada Kleyman, of Bright Star Sapphire Family Dentistry here in Fair Lawn. While Dr. Denada offers general and cosmetic dentistry (you can read more about her here), Dr. Boris is in charge of pediatrics: he helps New Jersey kids of all ages maintain healthy, sparkling smiles, and teaches them about proper oral health so they can stay smiling for the rest of their lives.

Dr. Boris Kleyman received his bachelor’s degree in economics from Hunter College (’06), and went on to complete dental school at Howard University School of Dentistry, where he received his DDS (’12). He completed a general dentistry residency at St. Barnabas Hospital (’13), and to ensure he was providing children in Fair Lawn the very best quality of care, he completed a pediatric dentistry residency at St. Barnabas as well (’15). For kids interested in becoming a top dentist in New Jersey, Dr. Kleyman has some advice: “Study hard, and be patient!” Becoming a dentist takes time, but each step of dental education is important to learn the many medical aspects of dental care, as well as the varied treatment for different dental conditions. Dentistry is a science and an art. As a pediatric dentist, Dr. Kleyman also tries to make dentistry fun for the kids who visit the office.

Since he became a pediatric dentist, Dr. Kleyman has been busy treating children ages 1 to 18 with compassionate, no-fear dental care.

No scary dentists here: the team at Blue Star Sapphire is extra friendly and fun to ensure that kids feel at ease during their whole visit, and the whole office is designed to create a warm, welcoming environment ideal for children.

For children who are very frightened of dental care, and for special needs children who require it, Blue Star Sapphire Family Dentistry also partners with New Jersey’s top, board-certified anesthesiologists to offer safe, comfortable sedation dentistry under expert supervision.

Though he treats patients of all ages every week with top pediatric dental care, Dr. Boris Kleyman also makes sure to keep up with the latest research in dental care, to ensure he’s providing his New Jersey patients with the latest techniques and technology. In addition to regular continuing education courses, Dr. Kleyman is specially trained in ClearCorrect orthodontic treatment, which helps patients of all ages straighten their teeth using clear, removable aligners. He’s also expertly trained in state-of-the-art oral laser surgery, for any specialized dental treatment your child may require. Your children’s teeth are in the safest of hands with the expert team at Blue Star Sapphire.

Dr. Kleyman is also paying his education forward to the next generation of pediatric dentists, teaching pediatric dentistry as an attending doctor at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center here in New Jersey. “Caring for children’s teeth can’t just be learned in a book,” Dr. Kleyman explains. “It’s important for new pediatric dentists to learn from other doctors in a real patient environment.” By passing on his knowledge to new pediatric dentists, Dr. Kleyman is ensuring that families in New Jersey will have access to excellent oral health for years to come.
