A Non-Traumatic Approach

Being a dentist for kids requires a special set of skills. Our children’s dentists take every care to ensure your children are comfortable throughout their visit. Our dentists never force treatment on a child. We avoid any traumatizing experiences that may prevent your child from coming to the dentist in the future. Our staff and dentists take the time to explain what we are going to do before we start and discuss all viable options with parents. We also encourage parents to stay with their children through every step of treatment. We strive to provide an environment that is candid, transparent and friendly for all patients, parents and staff members. As always, we welcome patient reviews, feedback and suggestions.

Orthodontics

All of our orthodontic services are performed by a certified orthodontist, not a general dentist. Our orthodontic specialists offer a free consultation to kids up to the age of 18! After a thorough evaluation, the orthodontist will explain in detail your individual treatment plan and your treatment coordinator will go over all insurance benefits, costs and payment options. In some cases, we can even offer same day braces so you be on your way to a straighter, beautiful, healthier smile in no time!

This is a type of dental surgeon that has both a 4 year dental degree and has been specially trained for 4 years in surgery focused on the hard and soft tissue of the head, neck, jaw and face
