Current News


    Picture of a sick teddy bearOur patients and team members health and safety are our top priority; as well as the community at large. As a result, we have decided to make a few important scheduling and policy changes that are effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020 and will continue indefinitely until otherwise notified.

    As we continue to follow OSHA's best practices for Infection Control, we are also looking to minimize the spread of COVID-19. At this time, our offices will be closed for non-emergency appointments. Those that are scheduled during this closure will be contacted by phone to reschedule.

    If your child is having a dental emergency AND your family is established with our practice, please CALL the office your child is normally seen at so we can assess the situation.

    IMPORTANT - Emergency Patients
    : If you or your child(ren) have had a fever of 100.4 or greater, cough, respiratory infection, vomiting, illness or have been exposed to someone who has been diagnosed or suspected of having coronavirus, please CALL our office PRIOR to entering so we can further assess; do NOT enter the office.

    At this time, we are asking that ONLY the child scheduled and only ONE parent/guardian come to the emergency appointment in an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

    Upon entering our office, we ask that everyone use the hand sanitizer provided at our front desk.

    Thank you for your cooperation and understanding, as the health and safety of our patients and team is our top priority!

First Visit by Your Child’s 1st Birthday

Here’s an interesting fact: More than one in four children in the United States have cavities by the time they are 4 years old – sometimes before age 2! Give your child the greatest gift on his or her 1st birthday – the gift of healthy teeth!

Tooth decay can begin as soon as teeth emerge in an infant's mouth. It can progress rapidly, causing pain and even harm to the permanent teeth that are still growing under the gums. If left untreated, tooth decay can destroy the teeth of an infant or young child and can affect a child's general overall health.

We love working with children, and have specialized training on how to calm pediatric patients while they are at their first dental visit.

Dentistry for Special-Needs Patients

Each patient, no matter his or her special needs, is treated equally and with respect in our office. Our dental team takes pride in our abilities to care for special-needs patients, and we continually educate ourselves in order to serve this population of patients with the highest level of care.

Enhanced Communication

Communication between you and our team members is a critical part of children’s dentistry. Please do not hesitate to ask us questions about any aspect of our practice. Likewise, we strive to provide excellent office-to-parent communication. Did you know that you can receive appointment reminders with an e-mail or text message? You can also view your upcoming appointments, make payments or check your balance online. Please call the office where your child is usually seen for further information about this time-saving and convenient online feature!

We always welcome new patients! If you’d like your child to experience the compassionate, gentle care that only we can provide, please call our office today.

As always, if you are pleased with the treatment your child has received, please tell your family and friends. The greatest compliment we can receive is your recommendation to our practice! Thank you for the trust you’ve placed in all of us at Dentistry for Children & Adolescents.

We Are Green!

We Are Green

Dentistry for Children & Adolescents takes a sustainable approach to dentistry.  We incorporate ecologically sustainable materials and procedures that reduce the impact of dentistry on the environment.

  • We have digital x-rays. This eliminates our contribution of pollution (chemical fixers and lead foils) into our sewer systems.  Also, digital x-rays use less radiation than conventional x-ray films. This minimizes our patient exposure.
  • We use electronic patient records, electronic communications for appointment reminders and submit electronically to insurance companies; reducing paper usage and saving trees.
  • We use steam sterilization rather than chemical based sterilization.
  • We have an in house recycling program; we recycle cardboard, paper, glass, aluminum cans and plastic in our office.
  • We choose vendors that donate a portion of their profits to environmental causes.

Our products and materials are also gluten and BPA FREE!
