Pediatric Dentistry

Establishing and maintaining good oral health is integral to your child’s general health and well-being. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children go to the dentist once their first tooth appears and no later than their first birthday.

The Mount Sinai Health System provides comprehensive oral health care for infants, children, adolescents, and those with special health care needs. We offer services at the Kravis Children’s Hospital at Mount Sinai Hospital, at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s, and at the Institute for Family Health in Harlem. We offer a complete range of services delivered in a compassionate setting, including preventive therapies, urgent care, and treatment for children and adults with special needs.

We accept most dental insurance plans and offer payments plans.
