Dr. Beth Herko
Dr. Herko’s passion for dentistry started at a young age when she worked as an orthodontist’s assistant during high school. She admired the doctor she worked under and began to dream of a career in public health. Driven and passionate, Dr. Herko followed her dream to New York Medical College, where she received a Master’s in Public Health. In 2006, she went on to graduate from New York University with her DDS.
One of Dr. Herko’s favorite things about practicing dentistry is that no day is the same. She’s always meeting new patients, listening to their stories, and understanding their unique histories and needs. For Dr. Herko, patients are what make the practice, and she loves being able to develop lasting relationships and help them maintain optimum dental health.
When Dr. Herko isn’t in the office, she’s spending time with her two children, husband, and her dog. As a mother herself, Dr. Herko understands the importance of positive dental health for the whole family, and when you’re at New Providence Dentistry, she’ll treat your family as an extension of her own.

Beth Herko, FAGD
I’m an FAGD dentist! What does that mean for you and your family? FAGD stands for Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry. Earning Fellowship takes dedication to dental continuing education (CE) beyond graduation. Only about 6 percent of general dentists in the U.S. and Canada are AGD Fellows. When you see a dentist with FAGD after their name, you can rest assured that they care about knowing the latest techniques and best practices in dentistry. AGD Fellows practice these techniques in a classroom setting multiple times a year — not every dentist does this.
- Complete over 500 credit hours of CE.
- Earn 350 of those 500 credits in live courses.
- Pass an exam equal in difficulty to board certification exams.
