Welcome to the specially designed pediatric dental “world” of Dr. Penny Resnick-Graulich. Infants, children, teenagers and their parents just love coming here. We pride ourselves on making the entire dental experience a positive one for all involved – while promoting optimal oral health care for our patients. Our goal is to educate your child to be an expert in his or her own preventative dentistry – hence a healthy smile for everyone!
Dr. Penny Resnick-Graulich is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Dental School and went on to do her pediatric specialty work at The School of Dentistry at New York University. She has been practicing children’s dentistry in Westchester for more than 20 years. Our amazing staff has been trained to help anxious children feel secure during dental treatment and make every patient feel calm, confident and comfortable in our dental office. Children with medical, physical, emotional and mental disabilities deserve special attention and find our dental experience particularly wonderful. We take pride in our individual capabilities which include hygienists, dental assistants and office personnel, all of whom insure that every aspect of your appointment, treatment and payment plans are done efficiently. Everyone here just loves kids, and that is why we do what we do so well.
Our entire staff is made up of licensed oral health care professionals who are clinicians, oral health educators and health promoters. Dr. Penny and her staff are all deeply committed to the total health and well being of your child and the ideals of preventative dentistry.
We work as a team to serve you and your child to the fullest extent possible. So many patients and parents have told us, “We have a great time at the dentist office and look forward to our visit with Dr. Penny and her staff.” The video games, movies, colors, ambiance and park-like atmosphere, all contribute to your child’s feeling as relaxed and comfortable as possible.
Parents usually accompany infants and children into our treatment rooms. Early examinations focus on the child’s risk of developing oral and dental disease. Based on this assessment, Dr. Penny will determine the appropriate recall interval for the next dental visit. Dental decay in children can progress quite rapidly. Dr. Penny will also evaluate your child’s dental development – how many teeth at what age? Fluoride supplementation, thumb sucking, pacifier, injury prevention, brushing and diet will all be discussed.
Preventive dentistry means a healthy smile for your child. Children with healthy mouths chew more easily and gain more nutrients from the foods they eat. They learn to speak better and more clearly. They have a greater chance of general health, because disease in the mouth can endanger the rest of the body. A healthy mouth is more attractive, giving children confidence in their appearance. Finally, preventive dentistry means less extensive, and less expensive, treatment for your child.
By their teenage years, young adults should be experts at taking care of their mouths properly. Brushing, flossing, and general care should be second nature. Sealants may be an appropriate treatment on permanent teeth. Selecting the right mouth guard to prevent sports injuries is another key function that we provide. And of course, diagnosing and caring for orthodontic problems at their earliest stages can save a smile and a budget.

The dental visit should be an education for your child, giving them the tools and reinforcement necessary to continue to care for their health.
