RANDOLPH, NJ- Over 50 families visited Pediatric Dental Associates of Randolph on Thursday Aug. 9 for the dental office's sixth annual “Ice Cream Social” event in the outdoor courtyard of their office building on Rt. 10 West.

“The ice cream social was designed as a way to celebrate the summer with our patients, and to thank them for being a part of the Pediatric Dental Associates of Randolph family,” said Dr. Susan Arnold.  “But we always welcome our patients to bring friends, and we love to have new families join us to meet our staff and enjoy the event with us as well.” 

For the employees of the practice, the event is a fun day “Out of the office” where they get to spend the workday enjoying some outdoor fun time with the kids.

“We also love interacting with the community outside of our office,” said Arnold.  “We feel strongly about connecting with our patients in fun ways outside of their regular appointments.”

With a face painter, balloon animals, and numerous games set up to compliment the ice cream sundae station, parents were pleased to have an easy, local option for a day of summer entertainment for their kids.

“The kids and parents that attend absolutely love the event,” said Arnold.  “We get a lot of feedback every year that it's one of the highlights of the summer.“

Pediatric Dental Associates of Randolph was founded in 1991 by Dr. Aaron Mannella, who has built the practice and it's outstanding reputation for the past 27 years. 

Dr. Mannella has a team of hygienists and dentists that work under him, and he attends every ice cream social along with all of them.  Dr. Mannella’s son Matthew is currently in his 3rd year of dental school with the plan of following in his father's footsteps at Pediatric Dental Associates of Randolph.
