Natural Awakenings Central New Jersey


MG Dental Associates: Mohinder K. Garg, DDS, FAGD

In 1994, Mohinder K. Garg, DDS, FAGD, opened MG Dental Associates, a professional and inviting dental office committed to making dentistry a more comfortable, compassionate and affordable experience for all in need. Its team of trained dentists are dedicated to helping patients achieve and maintain their best smiles while prioritizing their overall well-being.

As a Diplomate with the American Academy of Implant Prosthodontics and Master with the Academy of Implants Prosthodontics, Dr. Garg seeks to provide excellent restorative care through treatment recommendations that are based on accurate diagnosis and a complete evaluation of each patient’s needs.

“I have always been passionate about helping people achieve and maintain healthy smiles. The health of our teeth and gums plays a crucial role in our overall well-being, and my work enables me to educate and empower my patients to make informed decisions for their oral health,” shares Dr. Garg. “By providing exceptional dental services, I have a chance to alleviate pain, restore confidence and provide overall health for my patients. I enjoy creating long-lasting relationships with my patients, getting to know them and their unique needs. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing smiles on their faces after successful treatments.”

Dentistry has advanced rapidly since starting his practice three decades ago, and Dr. Garg and his team have stayed current with the latest in education and technology, including digital imagery, 3D x-ray and laser machines. These tools have contributed immensely to ensuring accurate diagnoses and providing a solid foundation for creating personalized treatment plans that may include veneers, crowns and smile reconstruction. 

The exceptional team of highly trained doctors and staff at MG Dental Associates provide the best care possible. Listening to and addressing patient needs and concerns is paramount. Treatment options are explained in detail and all questions are answered. The goal is for every patient to have no anxiety about their care options and to be highly satisfied by any service that is offered.

Shares Dr. Garg, “Dental health is directly connected to their holistic health, not a separate entity. Studies show there is a potential link between gum diseases and conditions like diabetes, heart disease and respiratory infections. Healthy diet and healthy lifestyle should be part of everyone’s overall regime to gain holistic health.” To emphasize a holistic approach to care, the practice also hosts a wellness practitioner to help patients with lifestyle disorders navigate tough health conditions through counseling and designing therapeutic plans for overall physical, mental and spiritual health. 

Dr. Garg has been awarded Top Dentist in 2013 and 2016 — Consumer Research Council of America, and America’s Top Dentist in 2013 — Fellow of the American General Dentistry Association. In addition, his commitment to continuing dental education is reflected in these professional associations: Member of the American Academy of General Dentistry Rewards/Certifications Mastership, the American Academy of Implant Prosthodontics, Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association®, and the ADA Implant and International Implant Association.

“I try to make a difference in society by giving confidence back to people by providing them their best smile and removing their dental issues. I like to get involved with like-minded individuals and bring on board highly skilled professionals and fellows to exchange knowledge and contribute to the advancement of the dental field as whole,” states Dr. Garg. “We welcome anyone who needs dental care and who values personal attention to their health.”

Tick Talk

Spring officially sprung on March 21. We have turned our clocks ahead. We are looking forward to warm winds, sunny skies and the smell of fresh cut grass. The daffodils and tulips have recently bloomed and we are just starting with the yard work that comes with the warmer weather.  Sadly, another season has started ramping up.  Tick season.

•             The best form of protection is prevention. Educating oneself about tick activity and how our behaviors overlap with tick habitats is the first step.

•             According to the NJ DOH, in 2022 Hunterdon County led the state with a Lyme disease incidence rate of 426 cases per 100,000 people. The fact is ticks spend approximately 90% of their lives not on a host but aggressively searching for one, molting to their next stage or over-wintering. This is why a tick remediation program should be implemented on school grounds where NJ DOH deems high risk for tick exposure and subsequent attachment to human hosts.

•             Governor Murphy has signed a bill that mandates tick education in NJ public schools. See this for the details.  Tick education must now be incorporated into K-12 school curriculum. See link:

•             May is a great month to remind the public that tick activity is in full swing. In New Jersey, there are many tickborne diseases that affect residents, including Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Lyme disease, Powassan, and Spotted Fever Group Rickettsiosis.

•             For years, the focus has mainly been about protecting ourselves from Lyme disease. But other tick-borne diseases are on the rise in Central Jersey. An increase of incidence of Babesia and Anaplasma are sidelining people too. These two pathogens are scary because they effect our blood cells. Babesia affects the red blood cells and Anaplasma effects the white blood cells.

•             Ticks can be infected with more than one pathogen. When you contract Lyme it is possible to contract more than just that one disease. This is called a co-infection. It is super important to pay attention to your symptoms. See link.
