Our office offers some of the following features:

Safe Atmosphere for Families

Your child’s safety is our number one priority! The Covid-19 pandemic has reshaped how we think about the safety of our patients. Our office has taken extra precautionary measures to ensure that our families are safe during each visit. To provide the safest environment we have implemented air purifiers, sneeze guards, electronic check-in processes, low aerosol protocols and much more into our office. For more information regarding our safety measures and new protocols visit our news page.

Dental Education for Kids

Providing our families with dental tips and oral health knowledge is one thing that is very important to us. We are passionate about going above and beyond in order to teach kids engaging ways on how to maintain a healthy smile, even after visiting our office! Using kid-friendly dental terms helps us to explain procedures that are being done while sitting in the dental chair!
