Helping Smiles Grow


New Leaf Pediatric Dentistry specializes in treating children of all ages, adolescents and individuals with special needs.  Located in Fort Lee, NJ, we help serve children in all of North Jersey.  Our mission is to provide a fun and nurturing dental home for every child.  We believe education and prevention are fundamental to the growth of healthy, beautiful and confident smiles.

Dr. Cherish Im (affectionately known as “Dr. Cherish”) has been in private practice since 2012.  She is a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist (NJ Specialty License # 06205), and understands each child is unique and therefore deserves individualized dental care to help provide a fun and positive dental experience.  Dr. Cherish and the friendly staff at New Leaf Pediatric Dentistry strive to provide the best pediatric dental care for your child in a fun, safe and warm environment.


We use kid friendly language and a tell-show-do approach to explain what we are doing so that the child is aware and engaged in every step of the visit.
Here are some key suggestions to prepare you and your child for his/her first dental visit:

  • Tell your child about their upcoming visit to the dentist.
  • Explain to your child that the dentist is here to help them have healthy teeth and gums.
  • Please remember to be positive, enthusiastic and convey a sense of goodwill about your child’s upcoming visit.
  • We welcome parents or caregivers in the dental room during your child’s first dental visit. Your presence can be extremely reassuring to your child.
  • Please allow us to conduct the visit. Kindly allow us to explain and answer all questions regarding the dental tools and equipment to your child. We will explain these things in a kid-friendly and non- threatening manner.


This office is amazing! Immaculate rooms and waiting room. Dr Cherish and her staff are so caring and patient. Dr. Cherish was so gentle! They made my 2 year old and 1 year olds first dental visit a breeze.

Wow. What a great experience! Clean and organized office. Friendly staffs and a very caring Dr Cherish. I am glad we were introduced to her by Dr Margaret Park. I thought my daughter will cry start to finish but she didn’t cry at all. It was unbelievable. Thank you Dr Cherish. I am sure I will be taking both of my daughters here.

Really friendly, stunning space. If you are looking for a pediatric dentist for your little one then look no further. These guys are amazing. I had a kicking screaming 2 year old. Everyone was so patient and kind and there to make sure his experience was a great one which it was. Can’t recommend them enough

Dr Cherish and her staff are phenomenal. From parking to the dental visit, everything was amazing! I couldn’t find the parking area and a member of her staff came downstairs to ensure I was coming into the right building. The customer care is above-and-beyond. My son (and I) can’t wait to go back!
