Smile Care for Kids

Joseph Basilicato, DMD

Specialty: Pediatric Dentistry


Dr. Joseph Basilicato has been providing infants, children, young adults and patients with special needs with the highest level of dental care for more than a decade. His warm, friendly team gets to know each patient and his or her family on a personal level.

“We know our patients well, and tailor treatment to provide the best possible care,” says the father of a four-year-old. “There’s nothing more fulfilling than hearing parents tell me their children love coming to our office—and can’t wait to come back.”

The practice uses state-of-the-art technology and innovative techniques to make the dental experience enjoyable for the entire family. The colorful office is equipped with an arcade and handheld gaming systems to help ease kids’ anxiety.

Dr. Basilicato received his DMD from the University of Pennsylvania and completed his pediatric dental training at Maimonides Medical Center, where he received a specialty certification in pedodontics.

 "Dentist Joe, as my daughter affectionately calls him, is extremely patient, kind and gentle. Our daughter has cerebral palsy and hates going to the dentist. But once she's in his big chair, Dentist Joe speaks in a loving, calm demeanor to her the entire time he's cleaning her teeth. All the while he tells her she's doing a great job and we will be done shortly. He compliments her brushing skills and how she is being so good, even though she may be screaming for no reason. He is truly the most patient and compassionate dentist I have ever met. I wouldn't dream of bringing her to any other dentist! When he is done, our daughter blows him kisses and says, "Thank you, Dentist Joe." He then gives her stickers and a prize like all good dentists do!" -Maria, Jefferson

  "He's very caring, gentle and explains everything he does to the children and their parents. He makes you feel like they are the very most important patient in the practice. I just love him!" -Susan, Pompton Plains

  "He's very caring and understanding and makes the kids feel comfortable." -Catherine, Lafayette
