After providing 15-plus years of pediatric dental care in a multi-provider practice, Dr. Jeffrey Melini set out two years ago to pro-vide solo provider care. He believed families in the Chester and Delaware counties areas were searching for this experience in a pediatric dental home. His goal was simple: provide the care and service his patients were accustomed to for years, while at the same time incorporating the latest in pediatric dental technology. Dr. Melini is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Pennsylvania Dental Association and the American Dental Association.

What is your typical process for working with a new patient?
New patients are given some extra time in the schedule to make sure that they feel relaxed and informed. Ample time is spent explaining and showing children the benefits of good oral home care. The extra time is also used so parents have the ability to ask any and all questions they have regarding their children’s dental health. After that, appointment time are tailored to each child based on their needs.
What treatments are you most excited to offer?
As of 2019, We are pleased to offer CO2 laser technology that allows our office to provide cavity removal without the need for needles and a drill. Although lasers have been available for quite some time, CO2 lasers are state of the art. They have the ability to vaporize the decay painlessly.
What makes your business stand apart?
In one word, service. It is equally important to make sure each and every child has a great dental experience, but is also important that the parents have a similar experience when it come to scheduling and interaction with the doctor and staff.
