The Pediatric Dentistry Division of the Department of Dentistry provides a dental home for children from Paterson and the surrounding communities. Comprehensive inpatient and outpatient pediatric oral healthcare is provided in a family-centered environment. Our goal is to provide children with a positive dental experience and to encourage healthy dental habits to last a lifetime.
Our services include cleanings and examinations, sealants, fillings, tooth extractions, space maintainers, interceptive orthodontic appliances and patient/parent education, including dietary counseling. Outpatient procedures are provided at the Family Health Center, located at 21 Market Street, Paterson, NJ 07501. Emergency services, treatment under sedation and inpatient care, including oral rehabilitation under general anesthesia, are provided at the hospital’s main campus at 703 Main Street in Paterson.
Our staff is also well equipped to provide services to pediatric patients with special healthcare needs. Children with cleft lip and palate and other craniofacial issues who receive team care at the Regional Craniofacial Center may access comprehensive dental treatment at our facilities.
