As pediatric dental specialists we take a child’s physical, developmental age, and any special needs into consideration when treating your child.  We want your child to have a positive experience and to help train your child to be a great patient.  Our goal is to help make phobic free children and to have that attitude towards dental health and treatment continue throughout their lifetime.
