"Each Child is Special to Us"

"Since pediatric dentists focus on caring for all of your children’s dental needs, they stay informed of the most recent advances in dental procedures for children.  Skill and compassion go hand in hand when providing exceptional pediatric patient care.  As a children's dentist, I stay up to date on the latest advancements in pediatric dentistry in order to provide the most current treatment options available for my young patients.  As a doctor, I recognize that my patients are unique individuals and their parents have placed a great deal of trust in me and our team.  This is just one reason why I value each and every patient relationship.

I appreciate the time you’ve taken to visit this site and find out more about our dental practice, our team, and the many services we can provide to help your children achieve optimum oral health."





Dear ValuedPatients and Friends,

I am thrilled to announce the addition of three dental specialists to our team:

Dr. Amy Patel and Dr. Robert Sonn who are pediatric dentists and Dr. Peter H. Chen who is an orthodontist.

I have taken great effort to find like-minded doctors who can uphold the highest quality of service that ourpatientshave appreciated over the past 41 years. Their outstanding resumes are included below. I will continue to care for patients alongside these doctors. Together, we will be able to provide additional services such as adult braces and Invisalign, and expanded hours to accommodate your busy schedules.

To reflect the growth of our team, I am proud to announce that we are changing the name of the practice to Smile Scarsdale Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics. Although the name will change, our commitment to taking excellent care of your family will remain the same. Thank you for your continued trust in our team. We look forward to having you in the practice again soon.
