All About Bayonne, NJ
The region that became Bayonne was claimed by the Netherlands after Henry Hudson explored the Hudson River (which was named after him). There are competing theories about where the city’s name came from, but the more likely one is that it was named Bayonne for real estate speculation purposes due to its location on the shores of two bays.
The city occupies just over 11 square miles and has a very diverse population. It is home to just over 63,000 people, as well as the fifth-longest steel arch bridge in the world and several sites on the National List of Registered Historic Places.
My Orthodontist Bayonne Location
We love serving the people of Bayonne and helping them achieve their properly aligned smile goals. Whether that means traditional metal braces to treat a complex orthodontic problem or low-profile clear aligners to treat something simpler, we can help. We also help patients who are in the retention phase of their treatment. Check this map if you need directions to our Bayonne location, or you can learn more about us on our business page.
If you aren’t sure which type of braces is best for your situation, we’re happy to help you find out at an initial consultation. We will determine what kind of treatment your smile will need. Traditional braces with metal wires and brackets are often still the best option for complex cases, but many patients are good candidates for treatment with clear ceramic braces, lingual braces, or Invisalign.
A wonderful place to visit in the area is Bayonne Park, an old, charming place where visitors can enjoy long walks in the shade of majestic trees and take in a beautiful sunset view, and play at the baseball fields, the basketball court, or the soccer field. There’s also a playground for kids and a great boardwalk and waterfront. Come out for a barbeque sometime!
Bayonne is also home to a beautiful memorial to the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attack. Presented to the U.S. by the people of Russia, this memorial is a work of art sitting right at the waterfront, with the names of all who died in the attack, up against the backdrop of the upper bay, with the Statue of Liberty visible in the distance.
