Police were called to the girl's elementary school and Krentcil was arrested.
Krentcil denies the charge, saying she "would never permit" her daughter to go tanning.
"I'm a great mother, I'm a wonderful mother," Krentcil said to the press as she entered the court Wednesday.
Krentcil admits to bringing Anna into the salon but says she's never allowed the fair-skinned girl into the tanning bed.
"It didn't happen," Krentcil said. "She's 6-years-old. Yes, she does go tanning with mommy, but not in the booth."
Krentcil said her daughter's burn actually came from playing outside.
In New Jersey, anyone under the age of 14 is prohibited from using tanning salons.
Krentcil was released to authorities in Camden County on an outstanding warrant on a municipal charge after posting $25,000 bond.
