WE ARE OFFICIALLY OPEN FOR ALL TYPES OF APPOINTMENTS NOW!
Our priority is to ensure your safety and that of our staff. We are following all of the latest guidelines from the ADA and CDC. In addition to the enhanced cleaning and infection control measures, the biggest change that you will notice is that we are limiting the number of patients in the office, and practicing social distancing.
Please wait in your car before entering the office. We ask that you call us at 718-761-7316 when you arrive so that we can let you know when we are ready for you.
Before entering the office, our staff is providing a screening of all parents. We are taking temperatures upon entering, and asking that only parents with young children or special concerns enter the treatment areas.
We are thrilled to see you again, but our number one priority is doing this safely. We hope to see you!
Dr. Michelle and the staff of Staten Island Pediatric Dentistry
Since 1976 the goal at Staten Island Pediatric Dentistry is to provide optimum dental care to your child in a friendly environment.
As pediatric dentists we are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teenage years including those children with special needs. We have special training which allows us to provide the most up-to-date and thorough treatment for a wide variety of children's dental problems. We can spot problems when they are small and manageable. When problems are diagnosed early, parents can usually avoid costly dental treatment later on. We therefore recommend that children begin routine dental treatment and preventive services by age 18 months.
The pediatric dentist is concerned about a child's total health care and good oral health is an important part of total health. To help your child stay healthy, the pediatric dentist often works with pediatricians, other physicians and dental specialists. Healthy children, as well as hospitalized, handicapped and chronically ill children often are served best through this team approach.
At Staten Island Pediatric Dentistry we believe that orthodontics plays an important role in improving oral health, and in achieving balance and harmony between teeth and face for a beautiful healthy smile. An attractive enhances a child's self esteem, which may actually improve the quality of the child's social environment. Most importantly, properly aligned teeth are easier to brush and thereby may reduce the tendency to decay or to develop diseases of the gum and supporting bone.
