Our Children’s Dental Team


From the moment you walk in our front door, our goal is for you to feel comfortable and informed.  We have a highly trained and friendly team with years of experience with childrens dentistry. We look forward to seeing you soon.


We are constantly keeping up with the latest trends and techniques through continuing education courses.  Our priority is the comfort and safety of our patients. We never lose sight of this and hope you will feel it every time you visit us.

Your First Visit

When you arrive for your first visit, please be prepared to complete all insurance and health information forms that will allow us to begin your dental treatment. We will ask you to fill out several forms that will get you acquainted with our office.


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 complete our New Patient Forms.

Dental  Insurance


Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary greatly, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith, but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time
