Dr. Buffong has always emphasized the importance of creating a dental practice that stresses relaxation, comfort and integrity. "Most important to me is my patients' understanding and education about the dental procedures that they are undergoing. I believe that an educated patient will make the correct decision about their dental health whether its implants, crown and bridge or Invisalign treatment.

Married for over 13 years to Dr. Jeannine Stephenson who is also a dentist, they have an 11 years old daughter, Alexis who is the apple of their eyes and heart.

In my free time I enjoy Reading, Golfing and Running.

RJ Dental and Dr. Buffong has also conducted numerous dental screenings / Oral hygiene demonstrations and dental education in numerous Schools, Churches and Community sponsored events for many years, including international missionary trips: Jamaica, St Vincent & Grenadines with Health Care International.

I was born on the small nature island of Dominica in the Caribbean, where I believe that when you are fortunate and bless, it is import to give back to the communities that have supported you and to the less fortunate in underserved areas.

"Welcome to A New Dental Experience."
