"My pediatric dental office is special and unique in many ways. I have a very experienced, sweet and happy dental team. Our practice offers great customer service and pays high attention to detail. We treat every child and parent as guests and make them feel welcomed. We run on "children's" time and tailor the visits to meet the needs of each child. We will spend as long as needed with each child to ensure they feel comfortable and enjoy their return visits. We are not a high volumn practice. Basically, I treat the parent and child the way my children and I would like to be treated. I make all treatment plan decisions as if I were treating my own children. I love my job and feel blessed to have been given the gift to help with children's dental needs. So many parents that I come in contact with have had a negative dental experience as a child and have carried those concerns into adulthood. I am so thankful that we are helping create a generation of kids that do not have those same concerns and are not afraid of the dentist. These patients have far fewer dental problems as they get older because they are not afraid to seek dental care. That is why it is so important for children to have good preventive care and a positive dental experience at a young age."
