Our Mission

Our mission is to make every effort to provide a safe, friendly and fun atmosphere while administering excellent dental care that meets each child’s individual needs. We are here to create a team approach with our parents and children so that we can maintain a healthy and happy smile to last a lifetime. Education, prevention and maintenance are our key goals. Your trust and confidence in us is highly appreciated and we strive to exceed your expectations.

Our Hours

We are open to serve you, answer questions or schedule an appointment during the following hours:

 

Monday – Thursday:   8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Friday: 7:30 a.m. - 3 p.m

Saturdays: By Appointment

Appointments

We try our best to accommodate our patients as much as possible when scheduling appointments. We have found that children with extensive dental work or preschool children are better to be seen early in the morning when they are fresher and can have a more positive experience. Some appointments may require the child to miss some school; however, these are considered excused absences. With continued care, appointments during school can be kept to a minimum.

 

We request 24-hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment, but we ask for your help as a courtesy to all of our patients. Continued broken confirmed appointments may result in an additional charge.

Finances

Payment for professional services is due at the time dental treatment is provided.  Every effort will be made to provide a treatment plan which fits your timetable and budget, and gives your child the best possible care.  We accept cash, personal checks, and most major credit cards.

 

Additionally, we are a Premiere provider with

 Delta Dental and will file your insurance claims as a courtesy to you. We are frequently asked what insurances we take. We accept any PPO insurance that allows you to see the dentist of your choice.

We are a participating provider with Ameritas/Principal and Cigna, in the Radius Network. We do not participate with any DMO/HMO insurances. We will fully attempt to help you receive full insurance benefits; however, you are personally responsible for your account, and we encourage you to contact us if your policy has not paid within 30 days.

First Pediatric Dental Visit

Our Doctors and entire team are dedicated to great dental experiences.

 

We, along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry,

recommend you bring your child in by his or her first birthday.

 

During your first visit, you will be introduced to our Pediatric Dental Team, given an office tour and discuss your child’s unique smile and ways to keep it beautiful for years to come.

 

Depending on the age of your child, he or she will either be given a knee-to-knee examination (where your baby’s head will rest on our doctor’s knee while their body is on your lap) or a regular exam in the doctor’s chair.

 

We request that you complete our First Visit Forms prior to arriving for your appointment. This helps our office keep your and everyone else’ scheduled visit on time.

 

Your initial exam will last approximately one hour. Oral hygiene instructions will also be given with suggestions to help your child care for their own teeth. In most cases, we will also clean their teeth on this visit, and provide an evaluation that will outline any existing dental problems and proposed treatment.

 

Please print and fill out our New Patient Forms.

Bring them with you at first appointment, Thank You.

Our Office

 

 

 

 

A Pediatric Dentist is a specialist dedicated to the oral health of children and the monitoring of their facial growth and development. Our office is designed for treating children from infancy through adolescence, as well as the medically and the physically compromised.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A pediatric patient not only has a different dentition than adults but he/she may have specific dental and behavioral needs that are unique to a child. These needs may include orthodontics, dental sealants, fluoride applications or home treatments, or just simply education in oral hygiene. In addition to treating existing dental problems, our office focuses on prevention through patient and parent education. We like to feel that you and your child do not come to our office to have their “cavities fixed” but rather to prevent them. Our office provides all of the educational tools necessary for our patients to enjoy a cavity-free future.

 

 

What is a Board Certified

 Pediatric Dentist?

 

When a Pediatric Dentist is Board Certified it means that the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry or ABPD certifies that the dental care being provided is based on standards of excellence that lead to high quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents and patients with special health care needs. Certification by the ABPD provides assurance to the public that a Pediatric Dentist has successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to the delivery of quality patient care.

Individualized preventive dental health program based upon a caries-risk assessment.

Anticipatory guidance regarding growth and development.

Plan for acute dental trauma (emergencies).
