Positive, early dental experiences can lead to a lifetime of excellent oral health. From infancy through adolescence, we seek to establish a familiarity with oral health practices and us as providers, that carry confidently into their adult lives. It is important to our team that our patients and their parents and caregivers, feel at home here.

Pediatric Dental Stages

Each child is unique and at each developmental stage their dentistry needs will be different. Whether you have a baby or a teenager, we offer comprehensive pediatric dentistry. 

Plan Your First Visit Before

Your Baby's First Birthday

Plan your child's first dental visit after the first tooth appears, but no later than their first birthday. Consider it a "well-baby checkup" for your child's teeth!
