Our Pediatric Dental Services
All of our services are specific to your child and their needs. We will always explain all the options and discuss all treatment with you and your child if you desire. Ample time is always given to explain all conditions and treatments. For children and families there is no one size fits all. We can often be flexible.
Preventive and Diagnostic
Pre-formed, ready-to-wear mouth guards can be purchased inexpensively at many sporting stores, but they do not always fit well. They can be uncomfortable and interfere with talking and even breathing.
Sporting goods stores also offer semi-custom mouth guards, in which the plastic is heated and then the athlete bites on it while still warm to provide some level of custom fit.
Your dentist can make a custom mouth guard by taking an impression of your teeth and then creating a device fitted to your mouth for the highest level of both comfort and protection. A custom fitted mouthguard can be particularly important for athletes who wear braces.
Our office can even use your favorite sports team or other designs to create a truly custom mouth guard!
There are two types of frenectomies: Maxillary frenectomies help to release a lip tie by removing the thick tissue connecting upper gums to front teeth. Lingual frenectomies release a tongue tie by removing the tissue connecting the tongue to the floor of the mouth. This can allow better speech, feeding, growth and development and can aid in orthodontics.
Whitening, also known as bleaching, is the procedure used to brighten teeth. We offer professional grade but teen safe home bleaching supervised by our doctors. Speak to your doctor to see if this procedure is correct for your child.
Pain Free & Sedation Dentistry

Our office uses a medical anesthesia team consisting of an anesthesiologist and nurse or second anesthesiologist. The medicines and monitoring equipment that our office uses is the same as what would be used in any modern hospital as is the training that the team receives. We follow the same highest standards and protocols suggested by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
