Every child deserves proper dental care

We aim to provide quality care in a personal and positive way.


No child should go without dental care, which is why at KidsBracesNYC, we work hard to ensure that parents living in the Upper East Side have local pediatric specialists that can provide their toddlers and teenagers with healthy teeth and gums.

At KidsBracesNYC, we aim to provide quality care in a personal and positive way. For us, it isn’t just about treating bite problems, moving teeth or dealing with dental issues, it is about caring for people. We work to make every patient feel comfortable and at ease in our offices so that their orthodontic experience is as reassuring as it can be. For children and adults alike, dentist appointments can be intimidating. That is why we talk with our patients and their parents, get to know them and discuss their concerns and expectations, so we can develop a plan that everyone is comfortable with.

No matter your age, you should feel confident and comfortable with your smile, which is why we work to make your teeth look as healthy as possible.

When you visit our office, you will meet with our specialist Dr. Tanya Vaysman. She will conduct the initial, visual exam and provide a preliminary assessment of your child’s overall dental health.

As professional orthodontists, our job is to help you achieve a healthy smile that will help you look and feel better, which is why this initial evaluation will be the optimal opportunity for answering any questions that you or your child may have about the status of their tooth health and further treatment. Some common first-visit questions include:

  • Do I need treatment?
  • What are my treatment choices or options?
  • What foods should I avoid? What other tips on oral care during treatment should I know about?
  • What is the estimated length of treatment?
  • What is the financial commitment? Is there a payment plan?
  • What orthodontic appliances – metal braces, ceramic braces, invisible braces – could be used?
  • Why is it necessary?

For children who are first-time visitors, immediate treatment is not always necessary. For those that do not need orthodontic care right away, we will put them into our Recall System so that we can monitor his or her progress. This free service allows us to take care of any issues as they arise, and put measures into place to prevent any major problems down the road.

If treatment is necessary, then we will move on to diagnostic records so that we can treat your child’s condition with a solid understanding of the root of the problem. These diagnostics records include:

  • An impression of your teeth
  • Photographs of your face
  • Photographs of your teeth
  • Two special radiographs

 These are all gathered in approximately 30 minutes and can generally be done upon your first visit for your convenience.

When it comes to child dental care and treatments, it is critical to be proactive. At KidsBracesNYC, we know that your kid’s smile is a big part in creating and developing a happy and healthy lifestyle for them. Our team of pediatric specialists wants to help you achieve your goals of a bright future for your children, so contact us today to make your first appointment!
