We know you want the best possible dental care for your child. With 40+ years of combined experience, our team has cared for thousands of children just like yours! We’ve seen it all – laughs, tears, bumps, bruises, and we know how to make kids feel comfortable and take the stress out of dentistry in any situation.

If your child is in need of routine dental care or more in-depth dental work, we can absolutely help. We love everything about our job, but we’re most excited about guiding parents with practical tips to improve their children’s dental health while teaching your child to love visiting the dentist. We’d be honored to have you join our practice.

Meet the Docs

As parents…
we understand that visiting the dentist can be stressful. It’s hard to find the time, know how your child will behave, and why is dental insurance is so confusing.

As Pediatric Dentists…
we believe you should have an appointment that fits your schedule, provide a calming environment for your child and help you navigate your overly complicated insurance. At Kids Teeth we believe we can help:

Form healthy dental habits that will stick with them for a lifetime.
Comprehend their dental visits and treatment.
Use tips and tricks discussed during your appointment in your everyday routines.
Eliminate frustration and stress from brushing.
