Dr. Phyllis G. Merlino: Todt Hill Pediatric Dentistry



Here at the office of Dr. Phyllis G. Merlino: Todt Hill Pediatric Dentistry, we are committed to quality dental services that ensure your child continues on the path toward a bright future of good oral health. Our goal is to treat children and young patients with a variety of oral health issues in a calm and caring atmosphere. We understand the importance of treating dental issues for children while also helping the children build a positive attitude toward dental visits and treatments.

Dr. Phyllis G. Merlino received a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from New York University’s College of Dentistry in 1994. After working as a General Dentist for 3 years, Dr. Merlino spent the next two years at the Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY completing a specialty training program in Pediatric Dentistry. Since her graduation in June of 1999, she has continued to provide pediatric dentistry services to patients in her private practice. The practice is limited to treating children of all ages, as well as those with special physical, mental and healthcare needs. With her team, Dr. Merlino provides children with the necessary oral health care in a calm and comforting environment.

We understand that children are not always willing to visit the dentist and strive to make the experience of each visit more positive for them. Prior to scheduling an appointment, our team will go over the necessary information that new patients need while also going over any necessary insurance information. We will be happy to answer any questions over the phone or in person on the day of the appointment.

If you are interested in scheduling an appointment for your child, give us a call at (718) 761-2090.
