S. Sharon Maloney, DDS, MS

I am a board certified periodontist who is committed to excellence and providing optimum care in a warm and friendly environment. Going to the dentist is never fun, but I do try to make the experience as pleasant as possible. I want you to feel comfortable and I want you to completely understand the importance of your periodontal health. Your gums and jaw bones are the foundation of your mouth and a healthy foundation is key for healthy teeth. I will spend time ensuring that we have discussed all of your options in detail and answered all of your questions. You or your dentist may feel that you need a gum specialist for recession, crown lengthening, gum disease or an implant. Whatever the reason for your visit, rest assure that you will leave with complete comprehension and the best care possible.


In 2000, New York University College of Dentistry brought me to Manhattan from Southern California. I graduated in 2004 and after dental school, I completed a General Practice Residency, from 2004-2005, at Lutheran Medical Center (LMC) in Brooklyn, NY. LMC is a Level 1 Trauma Center, where I was exposed to all facets of dentistry and facial trauma. From there, I attended University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey from 2005-2008. I not only achieved my Certificate of Periodontics, but I also received my Masters of Science. I graduated with a full scope of knowledge of periodontics and implants. I became Board Certified immediately after graduation.

Post Graduate Work

Since graduating in 2008, I have worked for several offices and also taught at LMC. I was responsible for developing the Postgraduate Program of Periodontics at LMC from inception to full accreditation and was appointed Director of the program. I have lectured at multiple venues and I have also been published in The International Journal of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry.

Family and Beyond

I am married to Karl D. Maloney, a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon who practices in Branchburg, New Jersey. We currently reside in Basking Ridge with our two sons and our family dog. In our spare time, Karl and I enjoy sports, going out to dinner, hanging out with friends and watching movies. I also enjoy reading, taking pilates and if time allows, a day at the spa.


Come to Summit Periodontics & Dental Implants LLC and you will see that I love what I do and am very passionate about periodontics. My staff and I look forward to meeting you!
