Making Dental Visits Relaxing and Fun
Kid Island Dental, the pediatric division of Great Neck & Mid-Island Dental Associates, is a state-of-the-art facility that sees children of all ages, as well as those with special needs. As soon as your children walk through the door they are treated to the familiar faces of Snoopy and Spiderman, plus calming scenes such as a state fair. We also have a variety of video games and toys. In addition, all of the doctors are trained to explain treatments to children in a reassuring way, using kid-friendly words. We believe that having positive dental appointments from a young age serves as the foundation for a lifetime of good oral hygiene, and our pediatric dentists ensure that each child has the most comfortable visit possible. For children who still feel uneasy in the dentist’s chair, IV sedation is available.
Recently we have received many inquiries regarding the dental sealants we use to help prevent cavities in our pediatric patients. We would like to put parents’ minds at ease by advising that our sealants do NOT contain derivatives of bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical that has been linked to health risks. We use a resin-based sealant that contains no BPA and no BPA derivatives.
