We specialize in the dental care of infants, children, and special needs children. Although our focus is on the prevention of dental decay and in the maintenance of optimum oral health, our primary goal is always to try to provide a positive dental experience for our patients.
In order to accomplish these, we feel that it is vital to nurture an environment of partnership with parents. Only by working together can we succeed in maintaining children healthy. This is why we want parents to be involved in all aspects of treatment whenever possible; including allowing parents to be with their children during exams, cleanings, and procedures. We are aware of just how difficult coming into a dental office can be for children and parents alike. But know that in our office we will never push or force any procedure, but instead we will wait for you to comfortable with our recommendations.
It is our belief that no two people are the same, and that this rule of thumb extends to children. Therefore, we expect different challenges in each case and are prepared to be flexible. Whenever possible, we will stop treatment at any sign of discomfort and if necessary try again on a different day or find an alternative to the treatment. This has meant that we do cleanings standing up, sitting on the bench, or with a movie on the background. We are happy to do what is needed to make your child’s treatment a success.
As parents ourselves, we are also sensitive to the desire by many parents to limit exposure of potentially harmful substances; therefore we choose our products wisely. For example, our sealants are BPA free and our cleaning pastes are gluten free. Also, we only use “white colored” fillings and have the latest in digital x-rays; which subjects our patients to the lowest exposure. In order for us to provide a comprehensive pediatric dental experience for our patients, we also offer use of nitrous oxide (laughing gas), IV sedation services, and treatment under general anesthesia.
We know you have options when deciding where to take your children for their dental care and truly appreciate that you have decided to choose us.
