Healthy Smile Habits

We focus on education, prevention, and minimally invasive dental solutions to ensure your child’s smile remains healthy, from the first baby tooth to the last adult molar.

Pediatric Dental Treatments

Prophylaxis (Teeth Cleaning)

During their regular six-month appointment, your child will experience a gentle and thorough cleaning to help prevent cavities and promote overall oral health.

Tooth Colored Fillings

When necessary, we use composite fillings with a tooth-colored resin to fill in cavities. As a result, fillings blend in naturally.

Dental Sealants

A coating can be professionally applied to prevent cavities by sealing the chewing surfaces.

Dental Emergencies

If your child experiences trauma or has pain, please call us! We offer same-day visits for emergencies. We are also available 24/7 for our patients of record.

Tooth Extractions

When a tooth has decay, disease, trauma, or may impede normal oral development, we remove the tooth.

Space Maintenance

When space is left behind prematurely by a lost baby tooth, we utilize a customized space maintainer to ensure your child’s permanent teeth have adequate room to create a healthy smile.

CO2 Laser Frenectomy (Infant Tongue-tie Release)

We use a laser to create normal tongue function allowing a baby to latch and breastfeed efficiently. Proper function also promotes normal speech development, makes it possible for a child to self-cleanse the mouth during eating, allows adequate swallowing patterns, and provides for proper growth and development.

White Zirconia Crowns

White crowns made of zirconia provide children a healthy, aesthetically pleasing, and metal-free alternative to traditional stainless-steel crowns. Zirconia is a biocompatible material that is extremely durable and was developed for use in pediatric patients.

Sedation Options

Nitrous Oxide

Also known as "laughing gas", nitrous oxide can be administered safely to help facilitate treatment for the mildly anxious child.

Deep Sedation

If your child requires extensive treatment, or cannot tolerate treatment with nitrous oxide, we partner with a board-certified pediatric anesthesiologist to provide deeper sedation to make your child comfortable. This is all done in the comfort of our office.

General Anesthesia in the Hospital

For those patients that cannot tolerate treatment in the office and are medically complex, Dr. Mike is on staff at Westchester Medical Center and can treat them in the operating room.

Serving Special Needs Patients

Dr. Mike has significant expertise treating children with special needs. We work at your child’s pace to keep them in an environment that allows them to feel safe and tolerate treatment. It’s our pleasure to provide interventions such as:

No Age Limits

There are no age limits for our special needs patients. If your child has special needs and started their care with us at a young age, we will continue to see them for routine care into adulthood.
