Meet our team of changemakers. We all work together to assure that all that is possible is done to help every child have an empowering experience during their dental visit.  Our goal is not only to improves a child’s oral health but also just as importantly, to help boost every child’s confidence that we are so privileged to care for. To achieve this we train all of our team members to be knowledgeable and sensitive to the unique needs of children’s oral health issues. Our team of Dr’s have a wide range of experience in treating children and adolescents’ dental needs. In addition to our many board-certified pediatric dentists, we also have Dr’s who have additional training and experience in adolescent dentistry, dental oncology, oral surgery, laser dentistry, I.V. sedation and orthodontics. All of our Dr’s, dental hygienists and assistants are required to continuously go through our quality improvement, assurance, and control program to assure every child is receiving the best dental care possible that is unique to the child’s development needs. Through our affiliation with Mount Sinai Health System and the Pediatric Dental Residency Program at the Icahn School of Medicine, we can assure that every child is appropriately attended to irrespective of the complex nature of their dental and medical needs.
