Pediatric dentistry is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the oral health of young people. After completing a four-year dental school curriculum, two to three additional years of rigorous training was required of us to become a pediatric dentist. This specialized program of study and hands-on experience has prepared us to meet the needs of infants, children and adolescents, including those with special health care needs.
There are a variety of approaches that are used to make your child’s first visit comfortable and fun. Keep in mind that you play a significant role in making the visit a positive one. Personal fears and anxieties can influence the way your child will react, so please consciously avoid passing those on. If necessary, discuss the positive aspects of dentistry and convey good feelings about your own dental visits.
We look forward to sharing in a positive experience with both of you. Please be sure to fill out the on-line registration and history forms. If there are questions you might have, please do not hesitate to call our office prior to the visit.
Establishing our office as your child’s Dental Home provides us the opportunity to implement preventive dental health habits to keep your child free from dental/oral disease. We focus on prevention, early detection and treatment of dental diseases, and keep current on the latest advances in dentistry for children.
Our goal is to promote confidence in your child that will last a lifetime. We hope to help all children feel good about visiting us and to teach them how to care for their teeth. From our child friendly office designs to our empathetic approach, our main concern is what is best for your child.
