What sets us apart
Kids First. Teeth Second.
Each child we see is different. They have different personalities and different dental needs. It is important that we look at each child ‘through their eyes’ when determining what treatment would work best for them.
Our office is colorful and comfortable for both parents and children. We strive to provide the best possible care for your children using the most up-to-date materials and procedures.
Special Needs Friendly
Children with special needs are those who due to physical, medical, developmental or cognitive conditions, require special consideration when receiving dental treatment. All of our providers are trained to manage and treat children with special healthcare needs.
