“Happy with Dr. Tong. Pleasant, happy staff that is very welcoming when you arrive. Stays on schedule. Kids aren't afraid of the dentist and work hard to get the t-shirt for no cavities. Also, while I was here I found out that there are discounts for veterans in November. Awesome to offer service members benefits!”

Our Featured Pediatric Dental Services
We are proud to offer a wide array of services to meet your child’s dental needs. Whether it is orthodontics, sedation dentistry, preventive care, or restorative dentistry, we can ensure your little one’s smile is properly maintained from childhood into adulthood.
The hard-to-reach back teeth are the most likely spots for cavities to form, especially in younger patients who may not know how to brush them properly just yet. That’s why our dentists are very likely to recommend dental sealants! This tough, plastic-based material is painted over the chewing surfaces so that it can form a tough barrier that blocks out food particles and dangerous bacteria. The application process is fast and painless, and they can provide valuable protection last for several years at a time!
Exposure to fluoride can go a long way towards helping your child’s smile grow up strong, which is why our dentists recommend using fluoridated oral hygiene products and drinking tap water on a regular basis. If our patients aren’t getting enough of it, though, we may recommend additional applications here in our Bergenfield office for an added boost. This natural mineral helps remineralize damaged enamel and ward off cavities, especially in developing teeth.
When a cavity appears, it is necessary that our dentists quickly treat the problem because the cavity grows and results in the need for a dental crown. In order to keep your child’s smile looking its best, tooth-color fillings are a safe and effective solution. We will clean out the decayed area of their tooth before using a composite resin that is match to their natural tooth color to fill in the tooth and create an effective seal to prevent reinfection or future damage.
We know the dentist’s office can be a scary place for young children, which is why we are pleased to offer sedation dentistry options. Whether it is a general checkup and cleaning or more complex procedure, our team will determine the best method of sedation to ensure your child is calm, relaxed, and completely comfortable during their visit.
We are pleased to accept most dental insurance providers and are experts at helping you maximize your benefits. Believing it is important to keep out of pocket costs low, we will work with you to help navigate your policy, file any necessary paperwork or claims, as well as work on your behalf with your insurance company.
If you need additional help to pay for your child’s dental work, we can help you apply for CareCredit financing. This third-party financier offers low-to-no interest payment plans that allow you to budget your family’s dental care, taking the stress off your finances and instead, focus on what’s more important – your child’s oral health.
Smile Savings Club
Uninsured? Not to worry! With our Smile Savings Club, you can pay $25 per month to ensure your child receives twice a year dental checkups and cleanings as well as fluoride treatments, dental x-rays, and any emergency visits. Should your little one require additional dental work throughout the year, we offer discounts of up to 30%!
