Our fully accessible office provides convenient parking, free coffee, and night and weekend hours.
Our services include, but are not limited to:
Pediatric Dental Services
We provide a full line of pediatric dental services, including preventive and diagnostic, aesthetic, and restorative care.
Preventive and diagnostic: Preventive and diagnostic dentistry is designed to head off future dental problems, and to catch any emerging issues as soon as possible. It is most important to prevent problems and catch them early.
Aesthetic: Aesthetic procedures improve the look of your child’s smile and can be vital in helping your child develop confidence.
Restorative: Restorative dentistry includes all procedures that may be required for a problematic tooth, and can range from simple to complex.
Our board-certified orthodontist can provide a full range of orthodontic care. The most popular treatments include:
Interceptive orthodontics: Early orthodontic evaluation and treatment can improve the relationship between the upper and lower jaws, and can help create space for the permanent teeth to come in. It can also prevent complicated oral surgery later in life.
Braces: Metal braces are now available in fun fashion colors, while Radiance clear braces are less noticeable.
As “the clear alternative to braces,” Invisalign uses a series of smooth, comfortable, clear plastic aligners to gently shift teeth into place. Your child will wear each aligner for 20 to 22 hours per day, or as directed by our orthodontist, and change aligners at home every two weeks, or as instructed. Invisalign is removable, allowing your child to brush and floss her teeth as normal and indulge in her favorite foods. In addition, it is nearly invisible, meaning that no one needs to know that she is straightening her teeth.
No Shot Laser Dentistry
Dental lasers use a highly targeted beam of energetic light to remove cavities without the use of anesthetic and less drilling. Soft tissue procedures like lip and tongue tie release become much easier. You can even zap away canker sores. Laser dentistry offers a variety of benefits, such as:
- Reduced heat and vibration
- Little or no need for anesthetic shots
- Minimal bleeding
- Faster treatment time
- Shorter recovery time
- Reduced damage to healthy tissues
- Minimal post-operative swelling and discomfort
- Fewer infections or post-operative complications
Grounded in the belief that oral health is inexorably linked with overall physical, emotional, and spiritual health, holistic dentistry promotes overall wellness rather than simply treating disease. We are deeply committed to building collaborative relationships with you and your child, and to educating you about dental health. Our office is allergen free, does not use silver “mercury” fillings and only limited digital x rays.
We aim to:
- Eliminate toxic materials from dentistry
- Advise in proper nutrition to prevent or reverse dental disease
- Prevent and treatment bite problems
- Prevent and treat gum disease
Although today’s dentistry is virtually pain-free, fear of the dentist is extremely common. Kids with dental phobias, those who have certain special needs, and those who need complex dental procedures may benefit from sedation dentistry.
We offer two different types of sedation dentistry:
Laughing Gas: Laughing gas is the best sedation option for most kids. A blend of nitrogen and oxygen delivered through a mask over the nose, it is very mild and wears off within moments. If your child ever feels uncomfortable, he can simply remove the mask.
Pediatric Dental Trauma Care
An estimated 33 percent of people are affected by pediatric dental trauma before their 19th birthday. There are many different types of dental trauma, including:
- Fractured Tooth
- Knocked Out Tooth
- Knocked Loose Tooth
- Tooth Intrusion into Socket
- Soft Tissue Laceration
- Damage to Bone Structures
If your child experiences dental trauma during office hours, please call immediately. After hours, please call for instructions from our on-call doctor. If the trauma is serious or life-threatening, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
Teeth will naturally lose their brightness over time. Drinking coffee or tea, or using tobacco, as well as certain childhood medications can cause teeth to discolor or darken even faster than normal.
Whitening, also known as bleaching, is the procedure used to brighten teeth. There are two different ways to achieve a desired whiter smile: in-office bleaching and at-home bleaching.
In-office whitening usually requires only one office visit. There are also multiple at-home whitening options with the Opalescence® whitening system. Customized trays can be made to hold the whitening agent, or pre-filled trays are also available.
Special Needs Dentistry
Children with special needs require the same dental services as anyone else, such as exams, cleanings, and fillings. Those whose conditions affect their oral-facial structures need specialized care. Yet special needs can make it difficult for children to participate in a regular dental appointment.
Our dentists are specially trained and tailor their approach to each child’s unique needs. We might schedule a longer appointment for a child who may need to take a break or use different techniques. Depending on how extensive your child’s needs are, we may request a consultation with you to determine how best to accommodate your child before proceeding with treatment.
- Broken Jaw
- Broken Tooth
- Cold or Canker Sore
- Cut or Bitten Tongue, Lip, or Cheek
- Swelling or abscess
