Oral Health Care Is a Team Effort
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. It is our goal to provide your child with positive, pleasant experiences in a cheerful and friendly atmosphere. We enjoy long-lasting family-dentist relationships and look forward to sharing many years of healthy, happy smiles with our patients.
Committed to Excellence
We take great professional pride in seeing your child enjoy their visits to our office. We strongly believe that a practice dedicated to service, prevention, and excellence can make a difference in a child’s life. Our philosophy of individualized, informative, comfortable care is what sets us apart in the field of pediatric dentistry, and we strive to carry out this commitment to excellence every day and with every patient.
Our Practice Philosophy
Individualized Quality Care
We are aware that each child is a unique individual with a specific set of needs. As your child grows up to be a teenager, those needs will also require different guidance of dental growth and development. When we design dental care for our patients, we take into consideration their age, development, amount of treatment needed and behavioral response to treatment in order to provide quality care that meets their needs.
Focused on Education
Informed parents make better decisions about their child’s health and wellbeing. We take time to educate you and your child about their oral health and the choices you can make to help them maintain and improve it. With our focus on prevention and health, your child can enjoy an overall level of good health, free from dental pain and disease.
Fun Comforting Atmosphere
Your child’s comfort is our priority, which is why we also welcome parents in the treatment rooms. We give children the opportunity to learn about the procedures being performed and to communicate fears and concerns. Our office is cheerful, our team is friendly and the colorful décor provides a pleasant non-threatening atmosphere. We have a variety of age appropriate games, video games in our reception area and a choice of your favorite movies while receiving treatment. We can be silly and are not afraid to show it!
