Established in 1980, we are a dental practice devoted to providing children and adolescents with the highest quality dental care in a gentle, efficient, and pleasant manner. We believe that education and preventive care are the keys to optimal dental health, and with children, parental involvement is often required. Parents are always welcome to accompany their child to all dental visits.

Our child-friendly office and highly trained staff promote a tranquil environment for the young patients. We understand that children mature differently and can vary in their levels of cooperation. Younger children who need more behavior management will always receive additional time with the doctors, even for a routine check-up appointment.

All of our doctors received specialty training in the field(s) of pediatric dentistry and/or orthodontics after dental school, and have committed their careers to the treatment of children. The additional education builds a strong foundation in child psychology, growth and development, non-pharmacologic behavior management, sedation techniques, in-office general anesthesia, hospital dentistry, and treatment of patients with special needs.
