Children's Dentistry

Many parents today bring their children directly to pediatric, or children’s dental specialists, rather than keeping treatment within a family setting. We believe that for most kids today cavities that require “drilling and filling” are a declining need. The fear of “pain” associated with the dentist is a thing of the past, and we always use proper anesthesia for one an all if we have to intervene.

Monitoring oral hygiene habits, emphasizing preventive treatment, and watching the growth and development of the jaws and teeth is most important to ensure that our kids grow up without fears of the dentist.

The relationships that form when children are young continue throughout life and shape their expectations of how pleasant a dental experience can be.

We enjoy treating kids of all ages, make appropriate referrals to the area’s best dental specialists (especially for orthodontics) when appropriate, and now treat many generations of patients in one place.

And our views of birds and nature constantly fascinate and delight everyone.
