Our team of family dentists is here for the long run to establish a relationship with you and your child.
Our goal is to teach each patient how to maintain good oral health from a young age into adulthood. If you ever have questions or concerns about your child’s oral health care please ask us. We want you to be informed and comfortable with your child’s treatment, and we hope this furthers our conversation about their care.
Why a pediatric dentist?
A pediatric dentist is a dental specialist with additional years of training after completing a four-year dental school curriculum. Kids need a kids’ dentist! Pediatric dentistry is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the oral health, growth and development, and unique needs of children from infancy through the teenage years. Your child’s visit to our office will be very different than a visit to a family or general dentist on several levels. Children are not simply “little adults” in their stages of development, and neither are their teeth. Because they are growing, what is looked at and how they are potentially treated is different than adults.
