Pediatric Dentist Upper East Side

Your pediatric dental home on the upper east side

We are a Patient and Family-Centered Pediatric Dentistry practice in New York, NY

“The dental home is the ongoing relationship between the dentist and the patient, inclusive of all aspects of oral health care delivered in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated, and family-centered way.”

- American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry guidelines

Our Philosophy

As an exclusive Manhattan pediatric dentist, Dr. Benichou provides personalized, comprehensive, preventive, and therapeutic dental care to all patients: children, adolescents, and kids with special needs in a warm and caring environment.

We focus on preventive care to help each child grow healthy smiles that will last a lifetime. Although baby teeth don't last as long as permanent teeth, they are essential in the development of your little ones. We focus to establish optimal healthy habits that will allow every child to become comfortable with their own mouth and capable of facing any dental situation. It is our goal that the children leave with healthy smiles, and that families have all the information they need to support their child. Patient care is never hurried, and their concerns are never dismissed. Each child will receive the extra care that they need to set them up for a lifetime of healthy smiles starting right at their first visit with us.

Kids with Sunglasses

Jennifer English

There are not words to describe how much we trust and value Dr. Benichou. Her expertise, insight, intuition, and magical way with children is like nothing else I have ever seen. She identified a problem with my daughter's tonsils years before any other doctor was able to see it. She has also tackled some other major issues with both of my children's teeth and under her care we have avoided some major potential longterm issues. My kids both adore her and have never been scared or felt any pain. We are continually grateful to her and feel so blessed for what she has done for our family.

Sandra Somnolet

Wonderful experience, highly recommend Dr. B. She got files transferred from another office on my behalf. She was thorough in the check-up of my two teenage boys and even managed to make them smile! She might possibly have changed our family perception of the dreaded check-up!
