The Pediatric Dentist is a
dental specialist who is dedicated to the oral health of
children from infancy through the teenage years. The
very young, preteens, and teenagers each require
different approaches in dealing with their behavior,
guiding their dental growth and development, and helping
them avoid future dental problems. The Pediatric Dentist
is best qualified to meet these needs.
A Pediatric Dentist has two additional years of
postdoctoral training in order to provide the most
up-to-date and thorough treatment for a wide variety of
children's dental problems. We are deeply committed to
the total health and well being of your child and to the
ideals of preventive dentistry.
Your childs health and safety is our top priority. Using advance dental digital xrays we are able to significantly reduce the amount of radiation exposure to your child. Although the amount of radiation used in dental xrays is very small, the effect of radiation is cumulative, so all radiation counts! Digital xrays reduce radiation exposure up to 80 percent. This is why we are happy to inform you we ONLY use digital xrays at our offices.
Dr. Jon Golub (speciality permit #3476), a three times graduate of Tufts University: Undergraduate College, Dental School and Orthodontic speciality training, provides "In the House" Orthodontics. Please visit our
Orthodontics page for details on how to get a beautiful, straight smile in a happy and healthy way!
of the most important responsibilities we have as
Pediatric Dental professionals is to educate children
and their parents about the importance of good dental
health habits. Visiting children at preschools and at
the elementary level benefits young patients
tremendously. In a very unthreatening environment, the
students learn about brushing and flossing, about
healthy eating for their teeth and about what a first
visit to the dentist can be like. Our office has
developed an outreach education program that is not only
informational and educational, but fun and entertaining.
Ms. Peggy and Ms. Robin's school hygiene program is a
hit with their fuzzy friends, "Jitterbug" and "Sydney".
Their mission: to educate youngsters on the importance
of good dental health and to eliminate any fears the
children might have about the dentist. If you would
like to schedule a complimentary dental health
presentation at your child's school or Mommy & Me, please call the
office and ask for Robin 201.944.7636
Dr. Jamie and her husband, Dr. Jon, our Orthodontist, are dedicated to giving children throughout the world something to smile about. Three times a year, they travel to impoverished countries on Pediatric Dental Outreach Projects. On these missions, they volunteer their time and effort, providing free dental care to children who have never seen a dentist before.
Dr. Jamie, who is on faculty at both Columbia University School of Dental Medicine and Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, provides care through two wonderful non profit organizations, "KIDS", Kids International Dental Services (www.kidservices.org) and "HCI", Health Care International (hcireachout.com). Teaming up with her dental students and other dedicated dental health care workers, Drs. Jamie and Jon have provided care to children in the countries of Cambodia, Mongolia, Guatemala and Jamaica. These children have absolutely no access to dental care. Many are orphaned and, in fact, have never seen a toothbrush. Dental decay is rampant in most of these areas and delivery of care is complicated because of the lack of running water and electricity. Despite the conditions, the dental teams are able to provide hundreds of dental extractions, cleanings and preventative services to their children patients during their one week visits.
"I have seen a lot of dental decay in my career. Treating patients is so natural for me," reports Dr. Jamie. "But I am so emotionally taken aback by the children in these countries. What is most impressive is the amount of smiling we see and the laughter that we hear. We are all warmly received and gladly welcomed by even the youngest and most anxious child. I consider it a privilege to be able to provide these amazing children with good dental care. Our experiences are so rewarding and fulfilling, that I return home with much more than I could have ever imagined. The opportunity I have to help strengthen these communities has enriched my life in ways that I had never thought possible".
