We believe that early exposure to proper oral health leads to a lifelong maintenance of a happy, healthy smile.

Choosing a Pediatric Dentist

Like a pediatrician is your child’s primary medical provider, a pediatric dentist is the primary (and specialty) oral care provider for your infant, child and teen. A pediatric dentist must complete an advanced post-doctoral course, accredited by the American Dental Association, of at least two academic years in the specialty of pediatric dentistry to be considered a specialist in the field. This extensive training provides pediatric dentists the knowledge to treat children’s teeth, provide a positive dental experience and to educate children on the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene.

Pediatric dentists provide comprehensive oral health care that includes the following:

  • Oral health exams for Infants, which include risk assessment for disease caries in mother and child
  • Preventive dental care including cleaning and fluoride treatments
  • Nutrition and diet recommendations for optimal oral health
  • Early assessment for straightening teeth and correcting an improper bite (orthodontics)
  • Fixing cavities and tooth defects
  • Diagnosis of oral conditions associated with various diseases
  • Management of gum diseases and conditions
  • Care for dental injuries such as fractured, displaced, or knocked-out teeth

Our dentists are passionate about working with children and promoting lifelong oral health. We love watching our patients grow up and we work hard to build a trusting relationship with them. We believe that when our patients trust us, they are less anxious and fearful of dental treatment and more likely to practice good oral health.
