We're Specialists...

The doctors cleaning teeth in Fort Lee and Westwood, NJThe 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.
 

Digital X-Rays

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.

School Dental Hygiene Presentations

School Dental Hygiene Presentations in Westwood and Fort Lee, NJOne 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

Humanitarian Pediatric Dental Outreaches

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".
