Business Owners: Joseph Discepola and Laurence WeilAugust 4, 2009
Have you ever sat down with someone and felt immediately at ease? That is the feeling you get when you sit down for a chat or teeth cleaning with Doctors Joseph Discepola and Laurence Weil.
Although Dr. Discepola and Dr. Weil have only been in practice together for three years, both have been dentists on the Avenue for a combined 83 years. They are staples of the community and are held in the highest regard among their Central Avenue colleagues.
Originally Dr. Weil went to school to become an engineer. Destiny however, had other plans for him thus he became a dentist. He opened his first practice on Central Avenue in 1959 on the corner of Central and Bowers (above now Garden State News). He chose Central Avenue because of family ties to the Jersey City area. Dr. Weil has had a loyal following of clients since he first opened his practice and continues to serve the public with his expertise of fifty years and a friendly smile.
Dr. Discepola started on Central Avenue in 1976. His first office was located on Central Avenue and Griffith Street. “I wanted to help people, that is why I became a dentist” said Dr. Discepola. His faithful patients are a testament to the quality of care and concern he gives to each person that sits in his chair.
Dr. Discepola and Dr. Weil offer a wide assortment of services from teeth cleaning, to extractions, to root canals, and teeth whitening. Almost all services are preformed in house. The office offers same day appointments as well as emergency appointments.
With their combined years of experience and knowledge of the latest breakthroughs in cosmetic dentistry this dental duo stays on the forefront of the industry while having the skill and know-how which can only come from years of practice. “Doctor Weil has the temperament to cater to the younger clients, but we take patients of all ages” said Dr. Discepola. Both doctors invite the young and old to “experience relatively painless dentistry” at the office and remember, they “cater to cowards”.
