    Are baby teeth important?

    Yes, baby teeth are very important for two reasons. They help your child eat, speak, and chew naturally and with ease. What most people do not realize is that baby teeth provide a pathway for the adult, permanent teeth to erupt. Keeping baby teeth healthy and free from cavities is important for their adult teeth, as well.

    Your child’s first dental appointment

    It is recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), and our pediatric dentist and hygienists to take your child to the dentist no later than his or her first birthday. Taking your child to the dentist this early on in life will help promote healthy teeth and gums into his or her childhood years.

    • It is also a great idea to start dentist appointments for your child early on in life in order to teach him or her how to properly take care of their teeth and gums (i.e. brushing and flossing– when he or she is old enough).
    • Learning these techniques early on is very important for overall health.

    Continued dental care for your child is one of our priorities. We want to teach your child how to properly care for his or her teeth. Six-month checkup appointments are another important component for great oral care, and we highly recommend following this recommendation. At home, it is important to continue to help your child with proper toothbrushing techniques. By brushing and flossing, the plaque and bacteria on your child’s teeth are removed. We will be sure to provide excellent care throughout your child’s adolescent and adult years!

    Gentle Children’s Dentistry at Babylon Dental Care

    Our entire team of dentists and associates look forward to helping your child learn effective oral care habits. Healthy teeth and gums from an early age will decrease any risks for developing oral cancer or periodontal (gum) disease later down the road. Our doctors and hygienists will also provide recommendations for your child’s dental care. For instance:

    • Choose the best toothbrush for kids.
    • Provide recommendations for tooth sealants as your child gets older.
    • Recommend the best type of toothpaste based on your child’s needs.

    We invite you to call our office to schedule an appointment for your son or daughter. Our team of dental professionals look forward to making your child’s first dentist appointment (and every one thereafter) an enjoyable experience!

    “I have never been to a dentist office that is sooo welcoming. I am not a fan of going to the dentist at all but when my sister recommended to try them, my thoughts about the dentist completely changed. This dentist office is very professional and do really care about the patient. I was amazed at the follow up phone call, email, and text! I highly recommend this dentist office to anyone and everyone.”

    Jill S. from West Babylon

    Robert U. from Lindenhurst


    “I always LOVE my experience at Babylon Dental! Everybody is so kind, from the receptionist at the front to the billing staff on the way out. The dentists are thorough, friendly, and very attentive. The dental assistants are so knowledgeable and warm! This is the ONLY dentist I would ever consider going to. Keep up the great work!

    Erin M. from West Babylon


    “This is the kindest, most compassionate office I have ever been to. Every person on staff is polite and courteous; not something you see too often these days. I ‘hated’ going to the dentist so much that I would only go when I had a problem. Since I started using Babylon Dental about 8 years ago, I go 2 to 3 times a year for a cleaning and just to make sure everything’s ok. I recommend this practice to everyone I know!”

    Nancie P. from West Babylon


    “Everything went very well. The procedure was almost painless, and since it was my first cavity filling, I was surprised at how easy it was. Everyone was very nice and willing to answer any questions I had.”

    Andrew L. from West Islip


    “The staff at Babylon Dental Care are by far the most professional people I’ve encountered. I was greeted with a smile from the minute I walked in and that continued throughout my entire visit. The office from the waiting room to the exam room were immaculate. Everything that was done during my visit was explained to me in detail which helps for someone with a fear of the dentist. The best experience I’ve ever had at a dental office.””

    Nickesha J. from Lindenhurst


    “If you have a fear of the dentist, Babylon Dental Care is the place for you.

Fantastic group!”

    Robert P. from Freeport


    “Who knew! I have always been afraid of the dentist because of a bad experience 25 years ago. This office renewed my comfort, and gave me the confidence to move forward and take care of dental work that should have been done years ago. The staff doctors and office personnel were so caring and receptive to my fear.”

    Loretta P. from Bay Shore


    “I have been a patient of Babylon Dental since Dr. Brown’s Office was originally in TSS shopping Center- perhaps 26 years now? I am always pleased with the high quality, professional care that I receive. I would not go anywhere else! Also, Maritza is a wonderful dental hygienist!”

    Peter G. from Bating Hollow

    Michael C. from North Babylon


    “Amazing. I am deathly afraid, and have been hurt by many dentists. But Melody, who did my x-rays and cleaning, was great. I was amazed how much they actually CARED about how I felt and was doing. Dr. Brown who read my x-rays sat and just talked To me not at me for a good 15/20 minutes. Didn't suggest root canals, posts n crowns, yell at me about my missing back teeth. He just talked to me about what is currently going on and his best suggestions to care for it, which didn't include root canals, extraction etc. Therefore I would highly recommend them. And thank you for a really positive experience”

    Pat M from Patchogue
