RANDOLPH, NJ- Who says ice cream and the dentist don't mix well?  The Pediatric Dental Associates of Randolph think a little ice cream never hurt anybody as they hosted their third annual ice cream social for their patients on Thursday.

All of their patients, along with their friends and families, were invited to come enjoy free ice cream sundaes and kid friendly activities such as hopscotch, face painting and other small carnival-type games.  This party showed what the Pediatric Dental Associates of Randolph is all about; a sense of community and a family-friendly dentist that both kids and parents enjoy visiting.

While the children certainly enjoyed the ice cream, games and nice weather, it's not the only reason patients choose Dr. Aaron Mannella, his wife Dr. Susan Arnold and their team.  "I really like the ice cream, but I never mind coming here," said ten year old Jillian Dodenhoff, "It's kind of a fun place actually."
Kids are not the only ones that enjoy the way the dentists' run their office however.  While 5 year old Nicole and 4 year old Gabrielle DiBello get excited for the free stickers and toothbrushes, their mother Beth really enjoys the quality service they receive.  "They are just so patient and accommodating with children, and that's really important," said Beth.
Dr. Arnold feels that the ice cream social is a way to give back to the loyal patients that visit the office and leave with white smiles.  "We want to thank our patients and we want them all to come together," said Dr. Arnold, "It's a family atmosphere."

The firm clearly understands the importance of communitiy, as well as the fact that running a family business like this makes them an important and integral part of the town they serve.  Pediatric Dental Associates is one of those businesses that regularly gives back to the community by getting involved in local events, fundraisers, and sponsorships.
While many children and adults alike dread going to the dentist for a visit, the patients of the Pediatric Dental Associates of Randolph smile both entering and leaving the office that treats them so well.
"We love our patients just as much as they love us," said Dr. Arnold.
