Will this be the first time that you are bringing your child in for a dental visit? If so, we will make every effort to keep him or her feeling comfortable and relaxed. Our office is designed to welcoming and fun. And our entire staff, most of all our Upper West Side pediatric dentist, is patient and friendly. Your child will know what our equipment and instruments are used for, because nothing creates trust quite like familiarity. Gentle care is a high priority for us. Fortunately, pediatric dental exams aren’t scary. A physical examination and visual inspection of her or his teeth is supplemented by x-rays to get a good look at what’s going on inside your child’s teeth. Cleanings are essential. Tartar buildup and residual plaque are removed, and any gum irritation or redness is reversed. Furthermore, these visits, ideally spaced out every six months, act as preventive measures, making future cavities and gum disease less likely. Guidance and advice are also provided. After all, your child only comes in two days out of the year. That leaves a lot of time for doing effective oral care at home. Count on us to show you and your child proper techniques for brushing and flossing, and to give you tips on how to handle teething, and the best ways to promote optimal nutrition as it relates to oral health.

Book a convenient time to bring your child in to see our Upper West Side pediatric dentist for proactive and preventive care.
