A Child



Your children will feel welcome and loved in office! Dr. Rodríguez-Peña support the American Dental Association’s recommendation that children attend an early childhood dental visit by the age of one year. While your little one may not have many teeth at the visit, the dentist will gently and quickly check for developmental or oral health problems. The main purpose of the visit will be to familiarize your child with our office. Then, in later years, your child will be more likely to feel comfortable at dental visits.

Let us know that you’d like to bring your child in for a Happy Visit, and we’ll schedule it consecutively with your checkup or cleaning. Your little one will take a ride in the dental chair, meet our happy team, and begin to see that the oral healthcare providers at our Elizabeth office are friends who want to keep your child’s smile strong, healthy, and beautiful.

We can provide tips to make brushing and flossing easier at home. The dentist or hygienist will also be happy to answer all of your questions and address your concerns. For older children, we may recommend interceptive orthodontics to promote a well-balanced bite and straight, attractive teeth. Interceptive orthodontics is a phase one treatment that usually occurs during elementary school years. In most cases, phase two follows during middle school or high school.

We’re dedicated to making dental care a positive, rewarding, and convenient experience for your family!
