Park View Pediatric Dentistry (PVPD) is one of Manhattan’s first dental practices devoted exclusively to children. Founded in 1986 by Dr. Deborah Pilla, PVPD is a pioneer in the gentle dental care movement. It is also the only Manhattan pediatric dental practice with an all-female staff of dentists, registered dental hygienists and assistants — most of them mothers. Many of the challenges of pediatric dentistry relate not to technical skill, but simply in making children feel comfortable and less anxious — something the PVPD staff of caring women do well. Children also look forward to our colorful activity-filled office and calming view of Central Park.At PVPD, we also pride ourselves on having the latest in cutting-edge technology and our ability to offer a variety of sedation options, whether in-office or general anesthesia at nearby LIJ/Lenox Hill Hospital, for special cases. As a premier pediatric dental practice in New York City we’ve built our solid reputation on not only our skills, but our dedication to offering dental care with a little extra care.
