Did you know that more than 50% of children get cavities in their baby teeth? Prevention and early regular dental care can significantly reduce the risk of cavities and other oral health issues in children. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends getting your child to the dentist no later than their first birthday.
It’s never too soon to start thinking about your child’s dental care or to find the best pediatric specialist in your area. For a Yardley dentist, consider Newtown, just a few miles away with all the expert care your child needs.

If you need an expert pediatric dentist near Langhorne, Yardley, and surrounding areas, look no further than Newtown Dentistry. Our office is a complete dental home for the entire family, kids included.
Not all dental offices, even family dentistry practices, have a true pediatric specialist on staff. We do. And, we’re close to home. The Newtown office is within eight miles or less of Bensalem, Langhorne, Richboro, Southampton, Washington Crossing, and Yardley.
The AAPD recommends not only taking your child for their first dental visit by 12 months but also that you establish a dental home.

Establishing an ongoing relationship with the best pediatric dental facility near you is essential for your child’s health.

We have a pediatric dentist on staff. And while we prioritize expert, high-quality dental care, we also provide a comfortable, fun setting for kids.
Dr. Christine Landes: Expert Pediatric Dentist
Kids love Dr. Chris, and so do parents. She is a board-certified pediatric dentist, a specialist you won’t find in all dental practices. Dentists can treat patients of all ages, but pediatric specialists have additional training and are skilled at working with the littlest patients.
Dr. Chris earned her dental degree from the University of Pennsylvania and completed specialty pediatric training at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine for Pediatrics. She has many years of experience working with children, is a leader in her field, and advocates for dental care access. To her patients, she is just Dr. Chris, a friendly, smiling face in a situation that can be a little scary for kids.
A Unique Child-Friendly Dental Environment
Dr. Chris and the rest of the staff put quality dental care and safety first, but they also strive to take the fear and anxiety out of the dental experience. They also make it fun! Take a virtual tour of the office to see for yourself.
