Despite being serious about your child's health, Dr. Rachel thinks going to the dentist should be fun!
Rachel Edelman, DMD, is committed to providing the kind of gentle, compassionate care that puts her young patients at ease. You will hear her singing silly songs and telling jokes from her operatory. She strives to provide a relaxed, informative, and positive experience for every patient (and parent) who sits in her chair.
After receiving her undergraduate degree in psychology at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Dr. Edelman earned her dental degree from Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in Newark, New Jersey. She went on to complete a two-year residency in pediatric dentistry at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, where she received special training in treating special needs and medically compromised children. Her hospital program provided intensive courses in pediatric sedation dentistry. This includes nitrous oxide analgesia, in-office oral sedation, and general anesthesia.
Dr. Rachel is a Board Eligible pediatric dentist and an active member of both the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association. When she's not at Smile Up, you can find her at Central Park with her husband and daughter Olivia.
