Meet The Doctor

Meet Dr. Lichtenstein

A Board-Certified Doctor Caring for the Most Complex Cases 

Dr. Lee Lichtenstein is one of the extremely few dual-trained dentist anesthesiologists in the State of NJ who is Board Certified. Being a Board Certified Anesthesiologist* sets him apart from other dentists and even other sedation dentists who do not have his level of training, certification and over 20 years of experience.

Dr. Lee Lichtenstein successfully manages and treats individuals with a wide range of difficult issues who could not be cared for easily or comfortably in the traditional and conventional dental office setting.

What separates Dr. Lichtenstein from almost every other dentist is that he is a hospital residency trained anesthesiologist. Dr. Lichtenstein completed his anesthesia residency at Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New York (one of the cornerstones of Northwell Health in NY) and practiced part-time in the OR at LIJMC for 13 years. Anesthesiology was recognized as a specialty by the American Dental Association.

He is the only member of the American Society of Dentist Anesthesiologists with an office-based practice in New Jersey. Dr. Lichtenstein is the honored recipient of the 2018 Leonard Monheim . (

We promised to take care… We delivered

  • It seems that people only write a review when they've had a bad experience, but that is not our case. We were referred to Dr. Lichtenstein by our pediatric dentist in Manasquan and couldn't be happier with the outcome of our son's procedure. So much so, that I'm having the Dr. do some much needed dental repair work for me. When my son's dentist told us our son needed to have 12 "surfaces" (cavities mostly) repaired we were in shock. Our first thought was our eight year old having to go to the dentist eight or nine times and sit still and endure work being done in his mouth. We decided to meet with Dr. L. after looking him up and reading about his 30 years of hospital and outpatient experience in NY and NJ. We would have had to travel to NYC or Philly to find someone with comparable credentials. Priority one for the Dr. and his team was that our son have a positive experience. That put us and my son at ease immediately. Dr. L. made it really fun for our son and simple for us all. He explained in detail what was going on with our son's teeth and what he could do to correct it. He spent a long time with my husband and I, reviewing everything in detail. Everything. The day of our son's procedure, everything went very smoothly and we couldn't be happier about the service we received from Dr. Lichtenstein and his crew. Really really pleased. As a mother of five, I am so grateful to Dr. L. and his team. Thank you.

  • The doctor was very informative, as he always is. The office staff are excellent. He was finished before I thought he would be. There was no pain felt by me. Even after the procedure. The dental assistant was very attentive with all of her operations.

  • Excellent care, excellent staff. I was terrified of dental work and didn't see a dentist for over 40 years. I can open my mouth now and not be embarrassed.

  • Professional, caring, considerate! Every person in this office cares about their patients. I was surprised Dr. Lichtenstein even remembered details about my teeth that I even forgot!  Great dentist and great dental experience.
