Ocean Pediatric Dental, which has been serving young patients in the area for 15 years, celebrated its official opening of its new, larger, whimsically designed office in Manahawkin on June 1. The office is located at 1301 Route 72 West.

Pediatric dentistry is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the unique dental and oral health needs of infants, children and teenagers. Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry.

Young patients will spot the bright play slide as soon as they step into the waiting room. The location also adds digital x-rays and orthodontic services to its patient care.

“I wanted to create a fun and welcoming environment for kids,” said owner Dr. Elisa J. Velazquez of the office. “We have a replica of the Barnegat Lighthouse, and we even have a sand castle slide to make the experience fun.”

Velazquez and her staff are committed to making the entire dental experience positive from the beginning to create a lifelong habit of good oral health.

To specialize in caring for children, pediatric dentists receive an additional two years of rigorous education and training that are combined in a dental school and hospital. This training experience also includes children with special healthcare needs and autism.

The practice, which also has an office in Toms River, serves Ocean and Monmouth counties and beyond.
