  • In order to provide your children with the safest care, we have invested in adding computerized digital X-rays the 1990s, when it first became available as a means of reducing radiation exposure to children. This reduced the amount of radiation children receive for dental X-rays as much as 90%.
  • We also reduced the frequency of taking X-rays when appropriate, from twice a year to once a year and only when needed to complete a comprehensive complete examination on children. This also reduces contamination of the environment, since we no longer need chemicals and lead foil to take and to view the old fashion methods of X-ray development.
  • We are a paperless office; everything is now on our computer, again reducing environmental pollution.
  • When new technology appropriate for children becomes available, Dr. Kotlow has been on the forefront of investigation and investing in the technology to provide the care your children deserve.

Our entire dental team is dedicated to your child's health and helping maintain his or her beautiful smile for many years to come. We look forward to getting to know you and your family.
