Special Needs Dentistry in NYC
For some children, receiving necessary dental care is anything but simple. For special needs patients, a visit to the dentist can be stressful and challenging for the child and parent alike. At Park View Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, our NYC pediatric dentists have extensive training and experience in treating patients who have special needs, including developmental disorders, physical disabilities and special behavioral and emotional needs. We regularly see patients who have a hard time coping with the delivery of dental care as well as patients who have a high level of dental fear.
Our calming office overlooking Central Park is fully equipped with the latest technology that allows us to perform the full range of dental procedures – all under one roof. From X-rays and digital scans to fillings, crowns, and sedation, we can achieve in one visit what might take several visits at other dental practices. Patient comfort is our top priority, which is why our office is designed to make our patients feel relaxed and at ease from the moment they walk through our door.

Extensive Training in Special Needs Dentistry
Following her pediatric dental residency, Dr. Deborah Pilla completed a pediatric dental fellowship at Columbia University specifically focused on patients with special needs. This foundation, combined with her 25+ years of experience and gentle and caring approach are all factors that contribute to her trusted reputation today.
Leader in Sedation Dentistry for Children
In addition to our in-house pediatric anesthesiologist, Dr. Oswald Jules, all of our pediatric dentists hold a New York State Certificate in Conscious Sedation. Our doctors regularly perform sedation dentistry procedures both in-office and at nearby Northwell-Lenox Hill Hospital, when a patient’s needs require a hospital-based procedure. No matter where your child is receiving treatment, you can rest assured that he or she will receive the best quality dental care from an experienced team – all without the negative feelings or sensations normally associated with a visit to the dentist.
