“I have been practicing pediatric dentistry for more than 38 years and love it. It is the only specialty where you can get in one or two good belly laughs each day,” says Dr. Eytel. “Our practice is very prevention-orientated; we’re here to help prevent dental disease, not just treat it. Our goal is happy, healthy, patients who, when leaving our office as young adults, will have a positive attitude toward dentistry for the rest of their lives.”

Dentistry for Children of West Essex attributes its success to a great team. “We are like family. Our dedication, talent and love for children is evident to everyone,” says Eytel. In addition to Dr. Eytel, the practice also includes pediatric dentists, Dr. Emelie Preis and Dr. Iva Leroy, and orthodontist Dr. Kevin Persily who have all been nominated as Favorite Kids’ Docs.

 "Dr. Eytel's always so patient, pleasant and informative. My children actually look forward to their dental appointments. They leave with huge smiles. Dr. Eytel is exceptional because he delivers excellent patient care!" -Lither, West Orange

 "Dr. Eytel is an expert dentist for children! He patiently explains every part of the procedure and makes kids comfortable with even the most complicated procedures and he's proud of taking great care of their teeth!" -Kathryn, Montclair

 "Dr. Eytel is compassionate, very professional and knows how to treat special needs kids. He was the only dentist able to teach my son to accept being at a dentist office and have no fear. My son now feels comfortable going to the dentist and see any of the dentists at Dentistry for Children of West Essex. But it was doctor Eytel who helped my son in the beginning." -Monica, Kenilworth

 "Dr. Rick is awesome! One of my little ones has ADHD and is borderline autistic. During his first time working with my son he was patient, kind, used a calm voice and had a loving presence that made my kid feel at ease. For the first time in nine years there wasn't a fight. The visit proceeded nicely and smoothly. I'm crying tears of joy!" -Andrea, Newark

 "Dr. Leroy's so patient and kind—really an exceptional dentist." -Carol, West Orange

 "Dr Emelie is the best! My daughter loves her because she's gentle and very kind. I love her because I know my child is getting the best care when she sees her." -Sandy, East Hanover
