Connecticut Magazine has recognized Dental Care Kids and Dental Care of Stamford in its Best of Connecticut feature. Services offered by Dental Care of Stamford include general dentistry, orthodontics, endodontic procedures, cosmetic restorations, oral surgery, and periodontal therapy. Dr. Jerry M. Simon, a specialist in temporomandibular joint disorder, is the inventor of the Best-Bite Discluder, an appliance employed worldwide by more than 10,000 dentists in the treatment of jaw-related head, neck, and facial pain. He is also a familiar contributor to dental health segments on ABC, NBC, Fox, and Discovery networks.
Dental Care Kids introduces young patients to dental health and oral hygiene with age-appropriate educational materials, an engaging and entertaining website, and a compassionate and child-friendly approach to the overall environment and procedures. For teens and pre-teens facing the ordeal of orthodontia, tip-edge and straight wire appliances are available, as well as the very latest innovations in the field, including Damon and Invisalign braces. Beyond their pediatric specialties, two of the Dental Care Kids dentists bring additional expertise to the practice: Dr. Jessica Levy holds a background in child psychology, and Dr. Maria Velasco has a Master's degree in Education.
Dental Care Kids and Dental Care of Stamford participate in Smiles for Life, a program through which proceeds from teeth whitening treatments are donated to children's charities around the world. The practice also contributes to Kids in Crisis, a local nonprofit benefiting young people who have experienced poverty, abuse, or neglect.
