First Visit

First Visit Learn More

The first dental visit is the foundation of a growing relationship between our dental office and your child. We feel it is important that your child be allowed to become familiar with our office environment and staff as soon as their teeth start to appear.

At the new patient appointment, the dentist and staff will spend quality time getting to know you and your child. We teach your child to be comfortable with dentistry by explaining the procedures and demonstrating the equipment in a fun and imaginative way. The office visit will include a thorough oral examination, x-rays if required, a cleaning and fluoride application.

A complete review of your child’s medical health and any special needs or concerns will be addressed. More complicated procedures, such as fillings, should be done at a later visit after your child has become familiar with the office. We conclude the first visit with an office tour.

Your child will also receive stickers, a prize, toothbrush and floss, as well as an oral hygiene demonstration and nutrition counseling. You will receive a summary of your child’s oral health and future dental needs. We look forward to your visit and hope you and your child will have the dental experience of a lifetime.

Infant Care

Infant Care Learn More

We specialize in infant oral health exams and parent education. We recommend that both mom and dad come to their baby’s first visit. This early appointment is one of the best things you can do for your baby. Our doctors will examine your baby’s teeth, check for decay, make sure teeth are erupting in the right order, screen all the oral tissues for diseases, determine proper jaw development and give valuable information on infant oral care and proper nutrition. Ask about our FREE new patient exam off for new patients under three years old.

Infant Frenectomies

Infant Frenectomies Learn More

Approximately 5 percent of newborn babies have breastfeeding difficulties due to a short frenum attachment under their tongue; this is sometimes referred to as tongue tie. Warning signs of tongue tie can be painful nursing, inconsistent sleep patterns, baby not getting enough to eat, and an exhausted mom. This can be corrected by a simple, harmless procedure called a frenotomy. Our skilled board certified dentists use the latest in dental laser technology to release the frenum and provide relief for both baby and Mom. Schedule your consultation as soon as you recognize possible signs of tongue tie.

Cavity Prevention

Cavity Prevention Learn More

Did you know that cheese reduces the pH in your mouth? Did you know that fresh apples have antibacterial properties, while apple juice is the most common cause of tooth decay in young children?

With so little time in the day for all the activities your children are doing, it can be tempting to stop and get fast food instead of making a well-balanced meal at home. Some of the most common foods that result in tooth decay for children are apple juice, any sugary energy drink, soft processed or sticky foods (such as crackers, cereal or fruit rolls) that linger on the teeth, or sweetened coffee and tea drinks. Take the time to involve your kids in proper food selection and preparation. It is a gift that will stay with them a lifetime!

Ask your doctor about medications that may cause dry mouth, as saliva is necessary to wash away food. Some medicines are high in sugar, so brush after using them.

Tooth Eruption

Tooth Eruption Learn More

We recommend printing this custom tooth eruption chart and keeping track of your children’s’ progress. Don’t forget to place those lost baby teeth under your child’s pillow for the Tooth Fairy. Let us know if you have concerns about the pattern or difficulty of tooth loss or crowding.

Permanent Tooth Eruption Chart

Thumb Sucking

Thumb Sucking Learn More

Prolonged thumb sucking, finger sucking, or pacifier use can create crowded teeth, permanent bite problems, or even speech impairment. We encourage parents to break the habit as early as possible by using positive reinforcement.

We offer a thumb sucking program that helps children gently transition away from the habit. Your child will be paired with his/her favorite dental assistant and will be required to call the office and report on his/her daily progress. After five days of consistently calling in and not sucking their thumb, your child will be rewarded with an Amazon gift card!

Teens & Young Adults

Teens & Young Adults Learn More

Teens are caring, intelligent, passionate and understanding individuals with a keen sense of social justice, identity, and independence. We provide support and respect for our teens, tailoring oral health to their unique needs. Our goal is to create a trusting environment where they can feel comfortable learning about personal risks related to their oral health.

As teens enter into early adulthood they are faced with new risk factors for the development of tooth-related health problems including sports drinks, juice bars, coffee, hormonal changes, and mouth breathing.

Digital X-Rays

Digital X-Rays Learn More

Dental x-rays or radiographs allow the dentist to see things about your child's oral health that cannot be seen by the naked eye. These items include cysts, cancerous and non-cancerous tumors, invisible decay that occurs between teeth, and the location of teeth that haven't grown all the way in.

Modern dental x-ray machines are very safe. We use only state-of-the-art, low radiation machines. The amount of radiation exposure your child's body receives on an airplane flight from Los Angeles to New York exceeds the amount of exposure they will receive from a modern dental x-ray machine. Contrast this minimal exposure with the risk of not finding an illness until it is too late, and you can see why we prescribe regular diagnostic x‑rays.

FREE Classroom Presentations

Orthodontics for All Ages

Our mission is to positively transform patient’s lives by providing uncompromising personalized orthodontic care.

Our pediatric specialists are trained to work with our orthodontists to identify individual orthodontic problems in children as early as age seven. Some influences on teeth and jaw development include jaw size and shape, chewing and biting forces, habits such as thumb sucking, tongue thrust, tooth grinding, and mouth breathing, prenatal pressure against the face of a baby (fetal molding), various inherited conditions, muscle weakness, missing teeth, extra teeth, crowding, early loss of primary teeth, or trauma.

Early treatment allows the orthodontist to correct and guide jaw growth, widen the jaws to make room for permanent teeth, guide permanent teeth for a straighter smile, create more space to eliminate crowding, prevent extraction, prevent jaw surgery, and more.

A lot goes into deciding what type of orthodontics will be recommended for teens. Our team will look at the positions of teeth and jaws in addition to facial proportions and symmetry. Bite measurements, evaluation of the gums and teeth, opening and function of the jaws and motivation of the individual are all taken into consideration.

Teens may have the choice between traditional metal braces, clear brackets, or ceramic (white) brackets. Invisalign provides a simple solution with the virtual invisibility of clear aligners. The smooth comfortable plastic aligners are removable for easy cleaning and to allow you to eat whatever you want. Any option is a good option when it comes to making your smile beautiful and building confidence!

We love to see Mom, Dad, Grandparents and other adults excited about straightening their teeth. More adults are choosing to straighten their teeth now because they understand the importance of a healthy mouth and want to feel better about their appearance. A few of our parents have decided to do braces alongside their children for a fun experience together.

Adults may choose from traditional metal braces, clear brackets, ceramic (white) brackets, or Invisalign® clear aligners. In adults, orthodontics can address crowded teeth, jaw pain associated with misalignment or bite issues, improved jaw function, and improved appearance.

When you are done with your orthodontic treatment and you want an even more enhanced radiant smile, you are able to request complimentary custom-made whitening trays with gel. We want you to show the world your beautiful new smile!

Our practice embraces the digital age of orthodontics to ultimately benefit your orthodontic experience. The Itero® digital tooth scanner is a welcome alternative to goopy dental impressions.

Diagnostic reports include digital health and dental records, digital photographs, digital x-rays, and 3D digital tooth models. 3D printed technology is also utilized to place brackets and retainers. We work with Invisalign® to create guided digital aligners for tooth movement. We can also prescribe custom bracket placement and digitally planned, robotically bent archwires for faster and more precise results.

These “invisible” aligners are the latest in orthodontic technology for adults and teens. Straight teeth and a revitalized smile no longer need to come from a mouth full of unattractive wire and bracket braces. Enhancing self-esteem and physical confidence, invisible braces offer an aesthetic and barely visible alternative to conventional wire/bracket braces.

Get the smile you've always wanted with Invisalign® Orthodontics.
