Nitika K. Goyal, D.D.S


Nitika K. Goyal, D.D.S. is a Board Certified Periodontist with strong roots in northern New Jersey. Raised in Florham Park, and a graduate of Hanover Park High School, Dr. Goyal went on to graduate Magna Cum Laude from University of Michigan with a Bachelors of Science degree in Pharmacology.

She then returned to the Tri-State Area and earned her doctorate of dental surgery degree from Columbia University in New York City.


Her interest in implant dentistry and the specialty of periodontics continued to evolve. Her dental studies inspired her to become a strong advocate of patient education and oral health. “I became very interested in the link between oral health and systemic disease.” This interest continues to serve as the foundation for Dr. Goyal’s practice philosophy – to restore form and function with a strong emphasis on patient esthetics.

Dr. Goyal completed her fellowship in Periodontics and Implant Dentistry at the University of Pennsylvania, where she had the unique privilege to train with some of the most respected figures in dental, surgical, and cosmetic periodontics and implant dentistry.

She is dedicated in providing high-quality periodontal services to our neighbors throughout northern New Jersey. She draws from her extensive study and experience in periodontics and dental implants to deliver accurate diagnosis, and contemporary, realistic, and effective treatments. She specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, the regeneration of bone and soft tissue, and in the placement of dental implants.

Dr. Goyal lectures extensively in New Jersey, New York, and Philadelphia. She is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. She is an active member of the American Academy of Periodontology, American Dental Association, and the Union County Dental Society.
