To create a positive dental experience that will instill trust and confidence, emphasize prevention and prepare children for a lifetime of happy, healthy dental visits.
Friendly, Accommodating Service
Beyond providing exceptional dental care for your child, we strive to make each visit a pleasant experience for parents as well. Whether working with you to schedule the most convenient appointment time or helping you get the most out of your insurance benefits, our team of experienced and talented staff is ready to help!
Infant Dental Visits
The most effective prevention programs are those that begin early before problems arise. The infant exam presents a timely opportunity to identify children at risk for dental disease and provide parents with the information they need to care for their infant and keep them cavity free.
We are continually seeking the most current and effective advances in pediatric dentistry and sharing this vital information with our patients and their families so they can make well informed decisions regarding their oral health.
Experienced, Caring Staff
Our incredible staff, each with unique talents and a heart for children, work together and draw upon each others strengths to help shape children’s attitudes toward dentistry to make their next visit something they look forward to. We take seriously the privilege and responsibility of caring for your child’s oral health.
Prevention Centered Dentistry
We now have the knowledge and the tools to be proactive when dealing with dental disease. When a preventive plan is implemented early in a child’s life we are able to identify children at risk, educate and guide parents and, when necessary, provide effective interventions aimed at interrupting the decay process so restorations can be minimized or avoided.
When procedures are explained in positive, age appropriate, child friendly terms, most children do very well during dental treatment. However, we appreciate each child’s uniqueness and limitations and offer sedation to ensure each child receives the care they need in a safe, comfortable setting. Our sedation options include in-office anesthesia provided by Dr. Hector Vila. Dr. Vila is a medical doctor with a specialty in anesthesia and advanced training in pediatric anesthesia.
Parents take comfort knowing they can pick up the telephone and contact Dr. Ron either during or after office hours in the event of a dental emergency.
