This growth is also reflected in the growth and popularity of the Mahwah Regional Chamber of Commerce, which is ranked one of the Top 25 Chambers in New Jersey by NJBIZ magazine. Why is the Chamber so popular? Because we give Chamber businesses center stage in everything we do. We are more affordable than many other business organizations. We are committed to giving back to the communities we serve and, more importantly, we have fun doing it! If anyone asks, “What do my annual Dr. Annette S.

Gwen Cohen has been in private practice on Dr. Gwen Cohen NJ Specialty# 5084 Ramapo Valley Road in Mahwah for over 10 years, providing the township a modern and refreshingly friendly approach to orthodontics. Dr. Cohen is a board certified orthodontist, one of a select few in our area. First in her class at Columbia Dental School, followed by a two year residency in Orthodontics at Tufts University, Dr. Cohen’s background and education present her patients with the latest in orthodontic technology, including Invisalign and Lingual (inside) braces in a relaxed and comfortable setting. Dr. Cohen has designed her practice for the best possible orthodontic experience. Patients are helped to visualize their bite problem by showing them digital images of their mouth and utilizing a computer software program that can show them the recommended appliances and treatment. During treatment, the patients really enjoy collecting their “Cohen Cash” which they can exchange for a prize at the end of treatment. The incentive program allows patients to receive “Cohen Cash” for good brushing, no broken braces, cooperation with elastics and retainers and much more. Dr. Cohen points out that a growing number of adults are seeking to correct irregularities in their teeth and improve their dental health. With cosmetic treatments as short as 3 months, adult patients are enjoying the benefits of invisible treatments such as inside braces and Invisalign. The American Association of Orthodontics recommends each child have an orthodontic evaluation at age 7. There are some functional problems such as crossbites, crowding, overbites and underbites which are best addressed during growth spurts and while there is still a combination of baby and permanent teeth. Dr. Cohen’s office is located in close proximity to the large corporations in Mahwah and surrounding areas, offering her adult patients the opportunity for appointments during their lunch hour and early morning appointments starting at 7:00 AM. The office is located right off Route 17, making it easily accessible to Northwest Bergen County and Southern Rockland County.
