Preventive Pediatric Dentistry For Children NYC
We work hard to create a pleasant experience and earn the trust and confidence among both our patients and their parents. We have built our practice one patient at a time, believing that no two children have exactly the same needs. Because each child requires a unique level of attention and care, our treatment plans are highly personalized, with strong emphasis on preventive dentistry as the foundation for a lifetime of healthy oral care.
With our Registered Dietitian Nutritionist as part of our team, we emphasize the belief that nutrition plays an important role not only in oral care but in your child’s overall health and well-being. This allows our pediatric dentists to implement a comprehensive and truly preventive dentistry plan for children.
The dental home is the ongoing relationship between the dentist and the patient, inclusive of all aspects of oral health care delivered in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated, and family-centered way. The dental home should be established no later than 12 months of age to help children and their families institute a lifetime of good oral health. A dental home addresses anticipatory guidance and preventive, acute, and comprehensive oral health care and includes referral to dental specialists when appropriate.
