Your Child’s Right-Fit Orthodontist Is Caring and Convenient


Your Child’s Right-Fit Orthodontist Is Caring and Convenient

Choosing the right pediatric orthodontist to work with your child can seem daunting at first. If you find yourself asking “Which pediatric orthodontist near me is the best choice?”, we’d love to offer Rockland Pediatric Dental & Orthodontics for your consideration.

What Makes RPDO the Best Fit for Your Family?

Our Rockland County NY practice is centrally located in New City, convenient to all our client families. We pride ourselves on being the county’s hub for oral health.

We also focus our practice on children and families. From our warm and inviting decor to our game room and play areas (when allowed per CDC safety guidelines), you’ll get our kid-centric vibe the moment you come in the door.

To make things easier for busy parents and kids, RPDO is a one-stop shop for all your child’s oral wellness needs. We offer full-spectrum pediatric dental services as well as pediatric orthodontics. (And psst… we treat grownups, too!)

Our expansion to include dentistry and orthodontics for kids as well as adults has all been thanks to the families who have loved our practice and grown with it over the years. When you choose RPDO as your pediatric orthodontist, you’ll feel that community pride and connection, too. Rockland County counts on us, and we are committed to this community’s children and families.

Does My Child Really Need Braces?

Many families come to RPDO thanks to a referral from their dentist, or from another family who works with us. Whether that’s the case for you or you’ve landed here while doing your own research about pediatric orthodontists in the area, one of your main questions may be whether or not your child truly needs orthodontic intervention.

The short answer is that only an orthodontist can say for sure! You will have many of your questions answered at an initial consultation with your child and our orthodontic team. In general though, here are some of the most common reasons braces (or other orthodontic interventions) are needed:

  • Crowded Teeth: Teeth that are crooked, rotated, or overlapping.
  • Excessive Overjet: The upper jaw or teeth are too far in front, or the lower are too far back.
  • Underbite: The lower jaw or teeth are too far in front, or the upper are too far back.
  • Excessive Overbite: the upper teeth excessively overlap the bottom ones.
  • Protrusion: The upper teeth stick out and do not fit with the lower front teeth.
  • Excessive Spacing: Teeth that have wide gaps between them.

Plus, beyond the appearance of the teeth and the bite position, some of these issues can affect the way your child chews, talks, or smiles. They may even cause pain or other oral issues down the road if not addressed.

If you are interested in finding the best pediatric orthodontist for your child, call us today to schedule an appointment and see for yourself why so many Rockland County families continue to recommend us to their friends and neighbors.

We Want To See You!
