Quality, Comfortable Dental Care
Children that enjoy their dental experiences now will be more likely to attend and enjoy their dental appointments as adults. Our mission is to provide comprehensive pediatric dental care at one office, so your child can receive high quality care in an atmosphere that encourages their participation and helps them feel calm and comfortable. From sports mouthguards to orthodontics and emergency dentist appointments, we offer comprehensive services specialized to the oral health needs of your growing and developing child.
Our Comprehensive Services
We offer metal-free, biocompatible composite fillings, which are safer and more natural-appearing restorations for decayed teeth. They can be used to fill a space after a cavity removal or to reshape or recolor worn or discolored teeth.
We will monitor the development of your child’s teeth and jaw bone as they grow to determine when orthodontic treatment should begin. Dr. Maribel Santos-Cordero is trained in orthodontics, but we may refer your child to a specialist for care.
We provide custom-fit mouthguards for children who play any contact sports. Mouthguards also protect teeth with braces to avoid injuries to the gums and cheeks.
We encourage dental sealants for patients whose back molars have deep ridges and grooves that are more susceptible to disease and decay. Sealants are a safe plastic material painted onto the teeth, then hardened and sealed with a “curing” light.
Occasionally, patients may wish to whiten their teeth in general or after orthodontic treatment is complete. We offer teeth whitening for our older patients.
We provide emergency dentist appointments if your child experiences dental injuries, including chipping a tooth or getting a tooth knocked out. Contact our office if this occurs, or go immediately to urgent care if your child has a traumatic dental accident.
