We started our practice to make dental care fun, friendly and accessible for kids. And while we are excited to see how Rockland Pediatric Dental and Orthodontics has grown into a whole-family practice, caring for your child’s oral health is where our heart is.

When your children visit our office in New City, New York, you and they can both feel relaxed knowing that your comfort and care are our priorities.

Routine dental care is important for patients of all ages! Twice-yearly check-ups and cleanings help us to monitor the health of your child’s teeth — and offer an opportunity to become more comfortable visiting the dentist.

Along with the recommendation by the AAPD, we want to see your child by their first birthday. Starting early is a great way to get a jump on good oral health; it’s never too early to start proper preventative dental care.

What Happens at My Child’s First Visit To The Dentist?

The first visit to the dentist is a big step, and we cannot wait to welcome your child!

At your initial visit, we will provide a tour of our office and an opportunity to meet our friendly team of pediatric dentists and hygienists. We will talk with you to get a clear picture of your child’s diet and overall health care and answer any questions you may have.

Next, we will do a quick exam to assess what is happening with your child’s teeth, followed by a gentle cleaning with toothpaste and a fluoride treatment. Both the toothpaste and fluoride come in yummy flavors, so encourage your child to ask for their favorite!

If your child’s dentist wants to further assess any dental health concerns, they may recommend X-rays or a more detailed treatment plan. We are here to answer all of your questions both during your visit and after — call us anytime!

We know that at 1-year-old many babies don’t have more than a couple of teeth. That’s okay! Bringing in your baby at this stage for a first dental visit gives you an opportunity to learn how to brush (and floss) your baby’s teeth and discuss proper diet and snack choices. So your child is on the way to good oral health right from the start.

How Can A Pediatric Dentist Help My Child’s Growing Smile?

Did you know that pediatric dentists receive specialized training to learn how to best care for young patients? Drs. Hermann, Chaly and Marcovich bring years of experience and expertise in caring for the teeth of babies, children and teens, including patients with special health needs.

Pediatric dentists not only understand the unique oral health needs of young people, but they also know how to help children feel relaxed and comfortable while receiving dental care, and they can speak to some of the emotional aspects of maintaining a healthy smile that teens and older children might encounter.
