Dr. Kenneth Feiler is just fantastic with even the most challenging children. Whether doing a magic trick, making an animal balloon, talking about the game they just played, the show they are watching, or the trip or birthday party they just had, he enjoys first making a young patient feel welcome and right at ease before any examination or treatment, as well as during and after any treatment. He is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and is an excellent fountain of knowledge when it comes to teaching the children and informing parents about children's dental development and proper care. He encourages discussions with a child's pediatrician or other specialists when appropriate. Dr. Feiler has three children of his own, (two girls and a boy) now grown up and all still patients. He has coached at least twenty children's sports teams locally in River Edge and Oradell over the years and still supports many of the local children's teams in many sports.
Dr. Feiler has nurtured a practice philosophy at Feiler Dental that children should not just be treated by our practice, but develop as patients for a lifetime of excellent dental care. To that end, we will make the extra effort for your children to take as much time and as many visits as needed to treat their individual personality needs as well as their oral health needs.
We start with a comprehensive medical and dental history in consultation with you, the parents.
We then introduce and teach children about the office and their own mouths. We have a wonderful staff that loves to interact with the children in the practice, making balloons, showing them their teeth on the TV camera, playing with puppets, discussing their needs dentally, and hearing about their school and extracurricular activities. They may even comment on the show your child is watching or the sneakers or shirt they are sporting that day.
Dr. Feiler believes in and encourages parents to accompany their children of any age while they are in the treatment room.
As a testimonial to our practice, we receive a wealth of referrals from the parents of our present patients. However, perhaps one of the greatest testimonials Dr. Feiler is proud of is the large number of new child patients whose parents started as his patients when they were children.
Our hygienists are especially trained to treat children, with several of our eight hygienists having children of their own. Since so much of your child's dental care (cleaning, fluoride treatments, sealants, home care instruction, etc.) is delivered by a hygienist, we consider their pediatric training and their wonderful positive attitudes with children crucial to your child's experience at the dental office. We not only send our hygienists to meetings to keep up with the latest in children's dentistry, we have regular monthly hygiene meetings to continually improve the care we provide.
We strive to make your child's dental care a better all-around experience and we are convinced that your children will look forward to coming back time and time again for their dental appointments!!
If you have any questions regarding your child's dental health or would like to arrange a consult or initial visit for your child, feel free to call and speak with one of our knowledgeable staff members or a doctor.
