At Dentistry for Children, We Provide Quality Pediatric Dental Care You Can Trust!


Dentistry for Children isn’t just a dentist office. It’s a place where our
experts in children’s dentistry love helping kids develop positive feelings towards dental health.
Your family will receive the highest level of pediatric dental care in a fun, child-friendly environment.
Plus, we’ve got you covered – we accept most insurance! Contact us today to join our patient family.


A bright and happy future is right under your child’s nose. To ensure they don’t miss it, we take the “scaries” out of going to the dentist and turn cleanings, fluoride treatments and basic oral hygiene into an exciting and educational adventure! If your little explorer is a bit shy, we know just how to help them feel safe and comforted during their visit. With a full spectrum of services tailored just for kids — your family will find all the care they need under one familiar, friendly roof.


The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a first dental visit at 1 year or after the eruption of the first tooth (whichever comes first). At such an impressionable age, it is crucial that we make their first memories with us positive and stress-free. For children who are old enough, we start by inviting them on a special behind-the-scenes adventure to see what being a dentist is all about! A vibrant, toy-filled waiting area will put their mind at ease until it’s time for the exam. Our friendly pediatric dentists and dental assistants have a variety of tricks up their sleeves to keep your child calm and entertained while we clean their teeth. Depending on your child’s age, we may also collect radiographs (or as we like to call them, tooth pics). Bravery is always rewarded at the end of an exam with a goodie bag and other prizes. While they enjoy some positive reinforcement, we will fill you in on how things are developing.


Pediatric dentists aren’t your average oral health care specialists. They go through 2-3 years of specialized training in addition to obtaining their dental degrees to learn how to care for growing children and kids with special needs. Meet our friendly, knowledgeable staff and notice the kid-friendly difference right away.

It’s all smiles at our office. Find out what has parents and kids so happy to see our dentists!

After a rough experience at another local pediatric dentist, Dr. Eric turned my daughter’s perception of the dentist right around. She left all smiles. Can’t say enough about him and his entire staff!


We love going to the dentist. The staff works hard to make sure kids feel safe and comfortable. Movies on the ceiling, cool sunglasses, and a great prize cabinet to select from after your checkup.


My son has ASD and can be hard to deal with at times. Dr. Eric and his staff are always patient and kind. We appreciate them so very much.


Very professional, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Clean and beautiful facility! My son loves going to the dentist!
