When you bring your child in for a checkup with our children’s dentist in Penfield, you can expect compassionate, personalized care from a skill professional. At the office of Dr. Gregory Merkley we welcome children of all ages for care and offer a comprehensive range of services designed to address their needs.
Our goal is to help children establish a strong foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral health. As your children’s dentist in Penfield, we place an emphasis on preventive care and strive to keep your child’s smile healthy from the start by providing routine checkups, professional dental cleanings and supplemental treatments designed to protect their smiles from tooth decay. Studies show that children in the United States lose 51 school hours each year due to dental disease, but with back-to-school checkups we can help your child avoid setbacks and spend more time learning and having fun. We recommend that children see us for their first checkup at a young age so that we can help keep their smiles healthy and on the right track. We’ll also monitor the growth and development of your child’s teeth and jaws, and will teach you the best ways to clean and care for your child’s developing smile. As your children get older and become more able to care for their own teeth, we teach them the importance and responsibility of brushing, flossing and making the right nutritional and lifestyle choices for maintaining a healthy smile. We also recommend periodic fluoride treatment and dental sealants to help strengthen as well as shield tooth enamel to protect against cavities.
At the office of Dr. Gregory Merkley, we make every checkup a positive learning experience for your child. As your children’s dentist in Penfield, we help your little ones feel comfortable and at ease whenever you come in for a visit. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.

Penfield Pediatric Dentist
As soon as your child’s first tooth comes in, usually around his or her first birthday, it’s time for a visit with our Penfield pediatric dentist. We strive to make your child’s first dental checkup a positive, stress-free experience, and utilize advanced techniques to allay worry and anxiety. We will instruct you on how to care for your child’s teeth as they develop, and as your child grows older, we will teach him or her more about the importance and responsibility of oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing, maintaining a diet that’s low in sugar and periodic dental checkups are easy steps your child can take towards maintaining healthy teeth and gums. At every visit, our dentist will track the growth and development or your child’s teeth, gums and their supporting structures assisted by advanced technology as needed to diagnose oral health problems from their outset, when they are typically the easiest to treat. Although cavities can occur at any age, due to lifestyle and dietary habits, children are especially susceptible. For extra protection against tooth decay, we offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Dental sealants are protective coatings, painted on the biting surfaces of your child’s permanent molars to prevent plaque and food debris from depositing in the crevices. Fluoride is a mineral, which we apply to the surfaces of teeth to prevent the erosion of enamel.
Our Penfield pediatric dentist and experienced professional staff strive to make every visit informative and engaging for you and your child. At Merkley Family Dentistry, we provide the quality preventive care you and your family deserve. To schedule a checkup for your child, call today.
