What We Do

Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry encompasses a variety of disciplines, techniques, procedures, and skills that share a common basis with other specialties, but are modified and adapted to the unique requirements of infants, children, adolescents, and those with special health care needs.

 

By being an age-specific specialty, pediatric dentistry encompasses disciplines such as behavior guidance, care of the medically and developmentally compromised and disabled patient, supervision of orofacial growth and development, caries prevention, sedation, pharmacological management, and hospital dentistry, as well as other traditional fields of dentistry. These skills are applied to the needs of children through-out their ever-changing stages of development and to treating conditions and diseases unique to growing individuals.

Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics

Orthodontics focuses on the treatment of malocclusions, or "bad bites" and facial imbalances.  Everyone wants a great smile and orthodontics is the way to make your smile the best it can be. Straight teeth not only look good, they also provide you with a proper functioning bite. Your upper and lower teeth fit together the way they are supposed to when your teeth are straight, so it's easier to bite, chew, and speak.  A great smile can help you feel better and more confident about yourself. It can literally change how people see you and the way you see yourself.

 

An orthodontist is a specialist who has 2-3 years of additional education and training, and is an expert in straightening your teeth and choosing the treatment that's best for you. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends all children get a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7.
