We strive to deliver excellent pediatric dental care in a stress-free manner.
Exams and Cleanings
Your child’s first checkup should be within their first year and be scheduled twice a year annually thereafter. The exam will evaluate items such as proper bite, loose teeth, gum health and check for cavities. During your visit, we will also review the benefits of fluoride treatments and dental sealants to prevent cavities.
Special Needs Dentistry
For those children who cannot sit still during an appointment or for those with special needs, our pediatric team has specialized training along with sedation services available to ensure anxiety-free appointments.
General Anesthesia for Children
To reduce children’s anxiety, we provide nitrous oxide (laughing gas). For those needing deeper sedation, we offer general anesthesiology provided by our on-site dental anesthesiologist.

Preventative Care & Education

Just how important is good dental care for children? Consider this:
Tooth decay is the number one most common childhood condition, according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD).
The AAPD states that 10% – 39% of dental injuries in children are sports related, particularly chipped and broken teeth.
The Centers of Disease Control & Prevention found 19% of adolescents aged 2 to 19 have untreated cavities. The Centers for Health & health Care in Schools have reported 51 million school hours are missed each year due to dental related illness.
Kid’s Regular Check Up
It is essential to have your child develop good oral care early in their life. Regular checkup appointments are important not only to evaluate tooth and gum health, but also to provide the opportunity for our team to educate your child in how to prevent dental problems and maintain a healthy smile throughout his or her life.
During your child’s fun & informative checkup, our team will be evaluating:
