Speciality: Pediatric Dentistry
Founded more than 55 years ago, Westfield Pediatric Dental Group provides comprehensive pediatric dental care in a safe, welcoming environment. Focused on prevention, the compassionate specially-trained, child-focused staff encourages families to plan their child’s first visit at age one.
Friendly, Relaxed Dental Visits
“Whether it’s a parent of a newborn who needs help with nursing or a teenager who needs motivation to improve their oral care, our comforting and exceptional patient experience begins the moment they walk through the door,” says Dr. Timothy McCabe, a father of three.
Dr. McCabe works alongside board certified dentists Drs. Julie Jong, Kelly Walk and John Chang in a newly-renovated office that features a game room, train table, TVs in the ceiling above each dental chair and two fish tanks.
“Our child-friendly staff makes visits inviting and relaxed. We’re genuinely interested in the families we care for and love to discuss each child’s interests and accomplishments,” Dr. McCabe says.
Treating Generations of Families
The practice utilizes laser dentistry and nitrous oxide, oral sedation and in-office and hospital general anesthesia options are available. A member of the International Association of Tongue Tie Professionals, Dr. McCabe specializes in caring for newborns, infants and children with lip and tongue tie issues as well as treating patients with special needs.
A Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, Dr. McCabe earned his DMD from Temple University and specialty training at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. He has served on staff at Children’s Specialized Hospital and Overlook Medical Center for his entire 29-year career. “We’re now treating the children of our former patients, which we believe is a true testament about the positive experience we provide for our families here at WPDG,” he says.

“Both of my children have been patients there for a few years. They can’t wait to go to their routine visits! All of the doctors and assistants are warm and caring. We recently had an incident occur on a Sunday evening and had to reach their emergency line. Dr. Chang reassured me that my child was going to be OK. The following day we went in and saw their primary doctor, Dr. Walk. She is the most compassionate and caring dentist. I was again put at ease when speaking to her. Dr. Walk is so calm and was singing to her while performing her work. I can’t say enough good things about her and the entire group!” – T.P., Colonia
