Our Practice


Family Friendly Dentistry.  World-Class Smiles!

We're in your neighborhood in Elizabeth, NJ and Watchung, NJ.

Now in 2 convenient locations, Dr. Elvira Dela Torre and Dr. Michelle Weddle are bringing world-class dental care to your doorsteps.  As part of a dental legacy, this mother and daughter team of dentists continue the family tradition of excellent dental care that has spanned three generations.  The combination of modern dental technology and old-world values in the care of their patients is the hallmark of this long-standing family tradition. 

"Listening to our patients' needs is just as important as delivering technically precise dental care.  Dentistry has become so advanced, and there are so many different options that will restore a person's oral health and beauty.  It is important that we as dentists understand that our patients deserve much more than a technician who will drill and fill.  Our patients  rely on us for information and advice in order to meet their dental and aesthetic needs today and help them keep their teeth for a lifetime.  We want to be sure that our patients are comfortable in our office and are comfortable with the knowledge that we will personally see them through their dental care as their needs change throughout the years."

We invite you to come join our family.  Personalized relationships with your dentist, specific recommendations for your dental health, and up-to-date dental care delivered with caring and respect. 

Welcome to Great Smiles!




Personalized Care                       


                                 Welcome to Great Smiles...


The practices of mother and daughter  dental team Dr. Elvira Dela Torre

and Dr. Michelle Sabater Weddle. 


Our dental team focuses on providing you a personalized dental experience in a comfortable, relaxing 



We understand that everyone’s dental needs are different.  We take the time to listen to your concerns and have an open discussion about your options.  We partner with you to come up with a plan that will best suit your needs immediately, and in the future.


Ask us your questions, and hopefully we'll have the answer.  If not, we'll find the answer together.  The more you know about your oral health, the better you'll be able to take care of yourself.  As a practice, we will use our knowledge to center our services on you - your needs and desires.  We are true believers that preventive care and knowlege are the keys to optimal dental health.  We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”.  That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer screenings, reviewing muscle and temporomandibular joint health, and taking x-rays when necessary.   Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health and function.  A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health.  Medications and medical conditions may impact your dental health as well as vice versa.  So please keep us updated with this information.

Uncompromising Safety

Infection control in our office is very important to us.  To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Training & Expertise

As general dentists, we are the primary oral health care provider for your family - and we take this task seriously!  Our strength lies in the diversity and frequency of education and training that our doctors and staff undergo.  Our doctors' continuing education hours averages 3 or 4 times more than state and licensing board requirements.  This means that we are able to stay on top of current developments, new techniques, and the latest and most effective products and equipment in order to deliver state-of-the-art dental care for our patients.


A Positive Experience

Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success.  We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience.  Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.


Family - Friendly Dentistry

Our doctors provide dental care for the whole family, with children able to receive dental care starting at age 1.  We offer family-friendly hours and we encourage our patients to bring their children to their appointments.  Our office has a children's table with crayons and coloring pages to occupy their time.  Bring their favorite DVD and we will play it on our TV, or choose from our selections in the office. 


We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.
