Dr. Maribel Santos-Cordero is a board certified pediatric dentist dedicated to the oral health of children, adolescents, and children with special healthcare needs.

At Dentistry for Children & Adolescents, we believe that a dentist and a patient become a team for treating an individual’s dental needs. A child that loves going to the dentist will be an adult that has no anxiety or hesitation about receiving oral health care.
We provide our patients with technologies that improve procedures and make them safer and more eco-friendly. We offer less radiation, more natural looking restorations and less chemical contamination.
February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. Every year, our team has much fun educating children, parents and physicians in a variety of activities for the community.
Every child is special in his or her own way. If your child has special healthcare needs, chances are that you are aware of how challenging it may be to provide your child with good oral care. With so many other priorities, it can be overwhelming to add another responsibility to your child’s care, and oftentimes their dental health is overlooked. Patients with special healthcare needs require assistance in keeping good oral hygiene habits and a different approach to dental care in order to meet their needs and circumstances.
An early visit to the pediatric dentist, preferably by the time your child is age one, is one of the most important ways you can help ensure your child enjoys dental experiences in a safe and comfortable atmosphere. Each child is different in the way they react to dental treatment and their needs vary greatly from that of an adult patient. If your child is afraid of the dentist or fearful of dental appointments, come visit our office!
