Will your kids love coming to the dentist? If you take them to Dr. Penny (as children refer to Penny Resnick-Graulich, DMD, Main Street Pediatric Dentistry), chances are excellent that they will. “We make it a really fun environment, and the kids like coming here,” says Dr. Penny. She uses a process she calls “tell, show, and do.” “We tell them about a procedure, then show them, and then do it,” she says of the desensitization process. “Nothing is scary.”
Dr. Penny and her associates Dr. Fran and Dr. Emelie (the newest dentist to the practice) do preventative and restorative dentistry, and the practice extends to caring for children with special needs. The entire office is designed to help her patients, from ages 1 to 22 years, have a happy experience at the dentist. “We provide a high comfort level for all of our patients (and their families) and enjoy caring for them,” she explains. “We are wheelchair accessible and our staff is trained to provide uncompromising care for every child.”
Dr. Penny advises parents to schedule their child’s first pediatric dental visit when the first tooth comes in—usually between six and 12 months of age to start children on the right path for a lifetime of good dental habits.
Dr. Penny established her pediatric dental practice in 1984 after completing her training at the University of Pennsylvania Dental School and New York University Dental School with a specialty in pediatric dentistry.
While active in a multitude of community affairs, Dr. Penny’s ultimate goal is to make the world a better place — one child
at a time.
