Our ultimate goal is to educate a generation of young people on how to achieve excellent oral health and to encourage life-long positive attitudes toward dental care.

Our Philosophy

  • Parents are always welcome to be present throughout each and every visit.
  • Restraints are never used to treat your child in our office.
Our commitment is to encourage young patients to develop excellent oral health habits as well as positive attitudes toward dental care. Our emphasis on prevention and early dental care coupled with our child-friendly staff make for a great dental experience. Our office staff works to provide the best dental care in a non-threatening, caring and compassionate environment. For additional comfort, nitrous oxide (laughing air) is offered in the office. In addition, we offer in-office deep sedation/general anesthesia for our patients.
