Our office is conveniently located at 139 Newark Avenue, in downtown Jersey City. We are half a block from the Grove Street PATH train station.
At Jersey City Pediatric Dentistry, our mission is to communicate well with both you and your child while providing the best possible care. We have the latest in pediatric dental technology and treatment options, yet understand that great service above all defines us.
Some children are a little nervous about their first dental visit. Our office has been designed with that in mind. We provide play areas, educational programming, music, movies, Apple Ipad stations, internet access and toys so that we can treat our patients with minimal stress. Many of our dental chairs are arranged in an open bay. Research shows, when children can see and hear others experiencing positive dental care, they may become more relaxed and inclined to cooperate with their own treatment. Come see for yourself! We look forward to welcoming you into our dental home.
We accept cash, all major credit cards and offer third party financing through CareCredit.
We accept most PPO policies that have out-of-network benefits. We are “in network” with Delta Dental Premier and United Healthcare PPO. Most PPO plans will pay us directly; some of these are: Aetna, Cigna, Guardian, MetLife, Principal, Empire, United Health Care, BCBS, and United Concordia. The best way to know how your insurance will cover our services is for us to call them directly, which we are happy to do. It is important to note that while we seek to maximize your benefits, we diagnose and make treatment recommendations based on optimal dental care rather than what insurance plans may or may not cover.
Appointment times are reserved exclusively for each patient. We suggest new patients fill out and submit their registration forms online prior to their visit. If you cannot electronically submit your information, please arrive 10 minutes earlier than your appointment time to complete that paperwork. We make every effort to maintain our schedule. Late arrivals may experience some wait time or be asked to reschedule their appointment so that other patients are not kept waiting.
We schedule our day according to age and procedure. Younger children and patients needing dental work are generally seen in the mornings. While we try to accommodate school age children with after school and Saturday appointments, there simply isn’t enough hours to see all during those times. Saturdays and after school appointments are a premium, so we limit each child to one per year. Dental appointments are excused absences and we will gladly provide you a school note. If you cannot keep your appointment, please provide us at least 48 hours notice so we may call one of our waiting list patients.
