Monitoring your child's dental growth and development, and preventing and intercepting dental diseases along the way, is a primary focus of our practice. Learn more about Pediatric Dentistry .
Our services include:
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, a child's first checkup should occur by age 1. At this important visit we will check the baby teeth for early cavities, show you how to care for a young child's mouth properly, go over your child's developmental milestones, and discuss the importance of good oral hygiene.

Dental sealants are invisible plastic resin coatings that smooth out the chewing surfaces of the back teeth — the place where your child is most likely to get tooth decay. A sealed tooth is far less likely to develop a cavity, which could require expensive dental treatment and cause your child pain. Learn more about Dental Sealants .
Treating Specially Challenged Children
Proper dental care is just as important for children with special needs as it is for any child. Yet it's sometimes more difficult for kids with special needs to get optimal care. We can help, with appropriate procedures and extra personal attention in the office.
It's easier to treat many orthodontic problems during childhood because the body is still developing rapidly. Whether you need standard braces, clear aligners, or appliances like palatal expanders, it's possible to make big changes in a short period of time. Learn more about the Early Orthodontic Treatment .
Sedation dentistry can be of great benefit to children and teenagers who would otherwise be anxious and fearful during dental treatment. With local anesthetics and sedative medications, it's possible for your child to have a dental experience that's free of anxiety and pain. Learn more about Sedation Dentistry .
