We built Lil’ Dente with your child in mind

From our caring team to our cheerful office, everything about Lil’ Dente is kid-friendly. We’re committed to giving your child the best pediatric dental care in Darien, CT.

Setting a new standard in children’s dental care

Going to the dentist can be a source of the ‘scaries’ for children—and you! We don’t want it to be that way for your family. At Lil’ Dente, we want your child’s visit to be a source of excitement. We thought through every part of the experience to promote joy, comfort, and the “can’t wait to come back” feeling. 

We do our job well by getting to know every single child who walks through our doors. Your kiddo has a unique personality with their own interests, fears, and triggers. We believe it’s our responsibility to learn them. Building that connection from the start helps us give your child the best possible visit for them.

Meet Dr. Naomi

Dr. Naomi became a pediatric dentist to make a lasting difference in children’s lives. As an undergraduate student at Wellesley College, she attended dental mission trips that sparked her passion for working with children. She graduated from The University of Pennsylvania’s School of Dental Medicine with two honors—in community health and research—and completed her residency in children’s dental care at NYU Langone Health in Brooklyn

She practiced dentistry in Connecticut and New York City before opening her office as a pediatric dentist in Darien, CT. Dr. Naomi founded Lil’ Dente in Darien because she loves the community and its family-oriented feel. When she isn’t busy making smiles brighter, she likes reading, traveling, and moving… you might see her in your Pilates class! But what she’s most passionate about is helping your child become the happiest, healthiest version of themselves.

Our Darien pediatric dentist’s office is as friendly and welcoming as our smile team. We know kids don’t like places that are sterile or stuffy, and frankly, neither do we.
