A Non-Traumatic Approach

Being a dentist for kids requires a special set of skills. Our children’s dentists take every care to ensure your children are comfortable throughout their visit. Our dentists never force treatment on a child. We avoid any traumatizing experiences that may prevent your child from coming to the dentist in the future. Our staff and dentists take the time to explain what we are going to do before we start and discuss all viable options with parents. We also encourage parents to stay with their children through every step of treatment. We strive to provide an environment that is candid, transparent and friendly for all patients, parents and staff members. As always, we welcome patient reviews, feedback and suggestions.
