Celebrate Orthodontic Health Month with Babylon Dental Care

Book your next appointment

October is Orthodontic Health Month, and Babylon Dental Care is celebrating with a special offer you won’t want to miss! All month long, children seven and over can get a free consultation and work-up with BDC’s own in-house orthodontist, Dr. John Baker, a $250 value. The work-up involves taking panoramic X-rays of developing teeth, scanning the mouth to make a computer mold of the dental features, and using modeling software to predict growth over time, which helps Dr. Baker and his team develop a course of treatment tailored to the patient’s exact needs.

“The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children have their first screening at seven and a half years old,” says Dr. Baker, who’s been a vital part of the Babylon Dental Care family for the last 24 years. “While that might seem young, starting treatment at an early age has many long-term benefits. Most importantly, it allows us to make major adjustments to the patient’s teeth, jaw, and even face structure without the need for surgery or other expensive, traumatic procedures. When you start early, you’re giving your child the gift of healthier teeth for life.”


That concern for minimizing pain whenever possible is informed by Dr. Baker’s own experiences with orthodontia as a child. “When I was a kid, I wasn’t treated until I was 13 years old. I needed five baby teeth and four permanent teeth taken out. They had to surgically bring down my canines. My wife had a similar experience in that she needed surgery because she got started too late for less-invasive widening options. That’s why all our kids got jaw-widening at seven, so there was no need for surgery.”

Now, he wants every family to enjoy the same benefits his did.

Assisting with this promotion is new orthodontic liaison Marcela Bonilla, who strengthens Dr. Baker’s services and facilitates his treatment with patients and their families. “I love helping patients and parents and coordinating their needs with our team,” she says. “My job is to work with families, discuss financial matters, and help them get the treatment they need in a way that fits their budget.”

That emphasis on teamwork and family fits perfectly with Babylon Dental Care’s philosophy, and it’s why Dr. Baker has been with the practice for almost a quarter-century and two generations of Long Island families.

“What I love about orthodontia is that my patients, their families, and their friends all get to see the work I’ve done for them, since the results are right there on their faces” Dr. Baker explains. “And what I love about Babylon Dental Care is that everyone’s here cooperating together. Being a multi-specialty practice means that patients can get all the dental care they need under the same roof.”

I highly recommend this dentist office to anyone and everyone.”

The dental assistants are so knowledgeable and warm! This is the ONLY dentist I would ever consider going to. Keep up the great work! I look forward to seeing you all again!”

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. I always have an amazing experience when I visit Babylon Dental Care and I used to be someone who was very afraid of the dentist. I highly recommend this dental practice for all of your dental needs. 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


“As a new patient, I was impressed by each staff member’s level of professionalism, friendliness, and knowledge. Dr. Brown gave me a thorough explanation of what was causing my dental issues, and how they could be fixed. I left feeling confident that I was in really good hands.”

“First the reception area was beautifully decorated. Your office runs very smoothly and efficiently, plus the staff are professional, friendly and great at what they do. Best run office I’ve ever seen.”

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


“From the call center ( Jo ) to the front desk ( Jennifer) and of course Dr. Peck , highly recommended. They are professional and truly concerned about the patient's experience”

Boni M from Babylon


“I am not one to write reviews but I always have such a pleasant experience at this office, so I felt the need to share. The staff is friendly, the wait is short, it's easy to get appointments (especially because of their long hours) and it's super clean. Thank you, Babylon Dental Care!”

Jacqueline C from Sayville

Andrea B from West Babylon


“The staff is so wonderful! Best experience I’ve ever had a dentist office by far. They offer the cutest “comfort bar” with tons of options to make you feel right at home. Not many people can say that they actually enjoyed their time at the dentist, but I 100% can!! Looking forward to coming back for my next cleaning!”
