2018 Holiday Toy Drive

At All in the Family Dental Care we thrive on helping our local community during the times they need it most. The holidays bring up so many memories and moments that make us feel grateful for all that we have. It’s also a time where we like to give back and make sure that those around us are just as fortunate.

We are happy to be involved with the 2018 Toy Drive, working to make our local kids enjoy this holiday season. Please consider this drive when you’re out running around and take a moment to stop and grab one of the items needed for our local families. 

We will be collecting these donations at our office from now until the 21st of December, so stop by, say hi, and drop off a donation. We appreciate it! 2041 Highway 35 Wall, NJ

All in the Family Dental Care Celebrates 85 Years of Health, Family, and Dentistry

It is with great honor and pride that we celebrate 85 years of business. Thank you to our patients and the community for the continuous loyalty and support over the last eight and a half decades, you have made all of our success possible. It is our family of patients that keep us going and encourage us to strive every day to provide the highest quality of service and dental care possible. THANK YOU for allowing us to grow as a family owned dental practice, your support has allowed us to stay involved and give back to our local community which we love so much.

A look back at 85 years…

When Dr. John G. Campi first opened his practice in Asbury Park in 1933, it was the beginning of what is one of the oldest, continuously family operated dental practices in New Jersey.

Over eight decades later, Dr. Campi’s great-granddaughter Erin Campi followed her father and grandfather into the practice, now located in Wall Township. Aptly named All in the Family Dental Care, the practice serves all ages with a full range of state of the art treatments and equipment in a relaxed friendly setting.

The late Dr. Campi, a graduate of Georgetown University’s School of Dentistry, practiced state of the art dentistry during his time and demonstrated his deep commitment to the community through years of philanthropic work.  He founded the first dental clinic at Fitkin Memorial Hospital, now Jersey Shore University Medical Center, as well as the Asbury Park Boys Club. He was also very active in state and national dental associations and introduced special equipment to the clinic designed for children with disabilities.  

“My father was always involved in the latest developments in dentistry and set a high standard for customer service,” said  Dr. Thomas Campi, who joined his father in the practice in 1969. “Those values have been hallmarks of our practice through the decades.”  

The practice moved to the Wall Professional Building in Wall, NJ, which the Campi’s built in 1972. All in the Family Dental Care has always been on the technological cutting edge, pioneering the field of dental lasers beginning in 1985. In 1992, John G. Campi III, DMD (Dr. Jack Campi) partnered with his Uncle Thomas, and together they incorporated dental technologies such as Digital Radiographs, Air Abrasion, Plasmas Arc Lights and new Laser Wavelengths. They introduced Dr. Jack’s brother Joseph G. Campi, DMD (Dr. Joe Campi) into the practice in 1998. Erin Campi represents the fourth generation working in the practice.

The family of dentists annually attend continuing education courses to stay at the forefront of their profession and to allow the doctors to offer their patients the finest cosmetic, periodontal, surgical, laser and implant dental care. They regularly attend courses focusing on periodontal surgery, oral surgery and dental implant technology so the most current treatment options are available to their patients.

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month

April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month and it’s Our Job to Educate our Patients & Followers.

There is no time like the present to be assured that your oral health is in good standing. Oral Cancer is a very real and very scary disease that many people are not always aware of. It’s our job to educate our patients and our followers on the signs, symptoms, and ways to prevent this deadly disease. Make sure to call us today to schedule your quick & pain free oral cancer screening – 732-449-2228.


Close to 49,750 Americans will be diagnosed with oral oropharyngeal cancer this year. It will cause over 9,750 deaths, killing roughly 1 person per hour, 24 hours per day.

One of the scariest parts of this cancer, is that in its early stages, it can go easily unnoticed. It can be painless, and little in the way of physical changes may be obvious. The good news is however, that during your routine dental check up we can, in many cases, see or feel the precursor tissue changes, or the actual cancer while it is still very small, or in its earliest stages.

Early Oral Cancer may appear as a white or red patch of tissue in the mouth, or a small indurated ulcer which looks like a common canker sore. Because there are so many benign tissue changes that occur normally in your mouth, and some things as simple as a bite on the inside of your cheek may mimic the look of a dangerous tissue change, it’s hard to know when to get it checked out. Our rule of thumb is that any sore or discolored area of your mouth that does not heal within 14 days, should be looked at by your dentist.  Other symptoms include; a lump or mass which can be felt inside the mouth or neck, pain or difficulty in swallowing, speaking, or chewing, any wart like masses, hoarseness which lasts for a long time, or any numbness in the oral/facial region. Unilateral persistent ear ache can also be a warning sign.

If you have any of these signs or symptoms please don’t hesitate to call us to make an appointment.

Health Talk With Dr. Odom

Campi Cares is proud to be hosting a health talk next Monday evening March 19th at 6:30 pm at the Atlantic Club with Dr. Douglas Odom, a retired OBGYN. He is here from Mississippi to speak on the benefits of whole food nutrition and how it relates to our overall health and wellness. Please join us for this informative health talk!!


Dental Health Starts as a Child

Teaching your child proper oral care at a young age is an investment in their lifelong health.

Campi Cares is the philanthropic effort of All in the Family Dental Care located in Wall, NJ led by Karen & Cheryl Campi. Created to get involved in the community they schedule numerous forums to speak about overall health and wellness, nutrition and education throughout the year. The month of February is Children’s Dental Health Awareness Month so they would like to raise awareness about the importance of oral health starting at a young age.

Developing good habits at an early age and scheduling regular dental visits helps children get a good start on a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. You can start by setting an example; taking good care of your own teeth sends a message that oral health is something to be valued. Anything that makes taking care of teeth fun, like brushing along with your child or letting them choose their own toothbrush, encourages proper oral care.

 

 
The best time for a child’s first visit to the dentist is between ages 2 and 3, some care you should take for toddlers is:
  • At about age two, it’s okay to start using fluoride toothpaste—but make sure there’s no swallowing.
  • Want to teach the proper length of time for brushing? Try singing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” or another upbeat favorite for two minutes.
  • Usually by ages three or four, all 20 primary or “baby” teeth have appeared. Permanent, or “adult,” teeth appear by age six and may continue to emerge into the teen years.
  • If you have a toddler who is afraid of the dentist, you might make your little one more comfortable by letting him or her sit in your lap during the exam.
