Our patients and their families are provided with

We emphasize preventing dental problems. Plastic
sealants, which act as shields on permanent teeth, do an excellent
job of sealing out decay. At each check-up, we determine the appropriateness
of sealants for your child, and if already placed, we check the
integrity of each sealant and repair or replace it if needed free
of charge. Tooth strengthening fluoride is utilized and is regulated
to the optimum level for your child.
Orthodontics Growth and Development
We intercept many developing orthodontic problems
by carefully monitoring your child’s growth and development
at each check-up. When warranted, a consultation with an orthodontist
may be recommended. Early intervention can prevent a more serious
orthodontic problem from arising.
Our clinical staff is caring and talented. They truly enjoy
treating children. The staff regularly participates in continuing
education programs. This keeps them especially current in the latest
findings, innovations and treatment in dental care for young people.
We utilize the highest quality and most advanced
materials available for children’s dental care. Our x-ray
techniques and procedures are all designed to minimize exposure.
Lead aprons and ultra-high speed film are routinely used.
