We are here to help you set your child up for a lifetime of great oral health.
What is Pediatric Dentistry?
The best dental care is preventative care. Seeing a pediatric dentist while your child is young helps instill good oral hygiene habits in your child and detects oral health issues early before they become more complex. Our pediatric dentists recommend children see the dentist after their first tooth comes in. While it might be surprising, teeth are susceptible to cavities and decay at any age. Starting your child's dental care while they are young helps make sure there aren't any surprises with their oral health later on down the road.
Benefits of Pediatric Dentistry
While you can certainly take your child to the same dentist you see, there are many benefits to having your child see a pediatric dentist.

Why is Seeing a Pediatric Dentist Important?
While general dentists can certainly treat your child as a patient, our pediatric team is specifically trained in children's dentistry techniques, treatments, and procedures. So not only can we make sure your child is receiving the best possible oral health care, but we can make visiting the dentist a fun and positive experience for your child.
