At Dentistry for Kids, our goal is to create a relaxing experience for children who need dental care. Kids are welcomed by our knowledgeable team members who teach the importance of oral health while avoiding language that might instill fear.

For patients who need that extra level of comfort, our doctors are both certified to perform sedation, either in the office or at the hospital, depending on the patient’s individual needs. You can rest assured that your child’s smile is in great hands at Dentistry for Kids.

She graduated from the City College of New York with a degree in biochemistry and went on to obtain her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the University of Maryland.

Outside of the office, Dr. Charles enjoys traveling, reading, playing tennis and swimming. She also does global work in Nigeria and Saint Lucia. Something her patients might not know about her is she would love to write children’s books one day!

Dr. Jatinder Dhillon

Dr. Jatinder Dhillon is originally from New Jersey. She received her undergraduate and Master of Dental Surgery in Pediatric Dentistry degrees from the Govt Dental College & Hospital in India. She went on to receive her Postdoctoral certificate in Pediatric Dentistry from Nova Southeastern University. Dr. Dhillon is a member of the American Dental Association and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

She was influenced to become a dentist at 6 years old when her baby tooth was loose and needed to be removed. Her dentist took less than a minute to remove it and prescribed ice cream! After that moment, she decided that’s what she was going to do: Take care of kids and prescribe ice cream! In her free time, she enjoys traveling and reading. She is married with a daughter and a son.
