Pediatric Dental Care

A child's primary teeth are as important as the permanent adult teeth. Primary teeth help children chew and speak and hold space in the jaws for permanent teeth that are developing under the gums.

A dental visit at an early age is a happy visit for the teeth. Under the age of 7, we may refer your child to a pediatric specialist. For older children, we check for tooth decay and other oral problems, demonstrate how to clean your child's teeth properly and evaluate their growth and development. We may recommend sealants as the permanent molars erupt or refer them to the orthodontist when needed.

Help your children maintain a lifelong healthy smile by providing them with a well-balanced diet, limiting snacks, ensuring that they brush and floss daily, and scheduling regular dental checkups.

Kids Playroom


Start your child brushing and flossing early and regularly to establish good hygiene habits.
