Our Story

Dr. LaCap is the founder of our dental offices, and she and her husband, Dr. Tong, are the proud parents of five children. They feel blessed to have such an abundance of gifts in their lives, and they are dedicated to sharing with others. We truly believe in paying it forward.

As a child, Dr. LaCap’s parents struggled to afford the dental care needed for her and her siblings. She has experienced the difficulty of sitting in class with tooth pain and never wants to see this happen to other children. While Dr. LaCap’s childhood was happy and she knows her parents worked hard and did their best, she also knows from personal experience that sometimes people need a helping hand. She knows because a dentist gave her family the help they needed. The dentist offered Dr. LaCap and her brothers the dental care they needed to remove dental infections and relieve toothache pain.

This kind and gentle dentist gave Dr. LaCap her first experience with how a dentist’s generosity can impact lives. As an adult, Dr. LaCap is passionate about giving this same gift to other children and families in need of a helping hand. Whether she’s volunteering as a troop leader, class mom, and confirmation teacher or providing free dentistry in our practice and on mission trips around the world, she loves having the opportunity to help kids smile. If you want to help our dentists and team members offer Dentistry From the Heart, we welcome your involvement as a volunteer or through donations. Your time, talent, and dollars will all be put to good use helping those in need right here in Bergenfield and around the world.

Evening & Weekend Appointments

As a family-friendly practice, we understand the difficult realities of finding free time in your day for dental appointments amidst work, school, errands, meals, and more. Instead of requiring you to take time off from these important responsibilities, our practice offers very flexible appointment times for added convenience! Washington Dental Associates is open until 6:00 or 7:00pm every weeknight, and Saturday hours are available as well. We enjoy being able to make high-quality care a breeze for you and all of your loved ones.

Locally Owned Dental Office

Sometimes, corporate-owned dental offices can lose touch with the personal, down-to-earth approach patients really appreciate. Our practice is owned by Dr. LaCap and Dr. Tong, a husband-and-wife team who are extremely involved in all of the practice’s day-to-day operations, especially improving patients’ smiles. They love being able to directly serve the needs of their neighbors here in the Bergenfield community!
