Pediatric Dentistry exists because children have dental problems. The pediatric dentist is dedicated to the care of these dental problems. The specialty training teaches that the modes of management for children are different than those of an adult. The pediatric dentist uses words and phrases that are age appropriate and child friendly, so that the dental work can be completed in a relaxed atmosphere. Dr. Giumenta believes early intervention is needed to prevent decay in hopes of raising all children free of significant dental problems. She would like to see children when they start to get teeth, so she can motivate the parents and the children about proper home care, understanding how what you eat relates to the cavity process, and the use of fluoride and sealants to help prevent cavities. Healthy teeth are an important part of overall good health.

The office is located on the corner of Amboy Road and First Street in New Dorp. The entrance is on First Street where street parking is available. The front door opens up to an enchanting and inviting reception room and play area, with lots of toys and books to keep the children entertained while they wait. Our little version of "The Magic Kingdom". Children often bring in pictures of themselves with their favorite Disney character that we proudly display on our bulletin boards. The entire office has a Disney theme from the play area, to the front desk and all the way into each dental operatory. The rooms contain different Disney art that always keep the children's attention. We have three spacious operatories with child sized dental chairs, comfortable parent chairs and a smaller brother or sister chair. All of our rooms are handicap and wheelchair accessible. All of our operatories are equipped with digital radiography, nitrous oxide and a little bit of pixie dust. At the end of every visit the child gets to pick from a wide variety of stickers and get coins to visit our toy machine. We want every child's visit to be magical. We have a clean, modern, state of the art dental practice that children love to visit and some don't want to leave.
