Meet the Doctor

Dr Sverdlov, Ridge Family Dental

Dr. Viktoria Sverdlov
Cosmetic and Family Dentist

A doctor and artist at heart, I am devoted to crafting beautiful, healthy smiles customized to meet the individualized goals of each patient. Always striving for perfection, I am committed to continuing my education in various specialty fields of dentistry to bolster my vision of delivering superior dental care.  By focusing on cosmetic, general, implant, and restorative dentistry, I am able to improve patients’ dental health as well as their overall health.

Having grown up in Nutley, NJ it gives me great pleasure to give back to the local community. I have participated in the Give Kids A Smile Day program and provided dental care to abused women in the Newark area.  In addition, I am a principal proponent of positive early-childhood dental hygiene habits and actively visit local schools to educate kids on the importance of their oral health.

Residing in Northern New Jersey with my husband and two children, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends as well as traveling, cooking, and painting.  I am bilingual: speaking both English and Russian.

Meet the Team

Gelena, R.D.H.
Dental Hygienist




Rita, R.D.H.
Dental Hygienist




Andrea, R.D.H.
Dental Hygienist

Andrea has been working in the dental field since 1997.  A graduate of Berdan Institute, she started out as a dental assistant but soon realized that her true passion is dental hygiene.  She returned to school to achieve her hygiene license.  Andrea graduated from Bergen Community College in 2002 on the Honor Roll, Dean’s list and as a class President.

Andrea shares: I think the field of dentistry is very exciting. The difference an improved smile can make in a person’s attitude, confidence and perception of themselves is utterly amazing. I love being a Dental Hygienist, sharing my dental knowledge and helping to make patients feel comfortable at the dentist office.  Healthy teeth and gums are the result of thorough but very gentle dental cleanings.  I have had the pleasure of working for a number of dentists in my career, and find Dr. Sverdlov to not only be an incredibly good dentist, but a thoughtful, caring and friendly person. She has always taken the time to show that she cares about her staff and patients.  She is my dentist!  When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my two boys, Christian and Brendan, and our dogs Kayla and Rock, pit bull rescues.
