Regular dental visits do more than help your child remain cavity-free! As a routine part of our regularly scheduled check-up exam and professional cleaning visits, our pediatric dentists provide ongoing assessments of any changes in your child’s overall oral health. Our specialty training enables us to identify orthodontic concerns early and manage them at the optimal age for maximum benefit. Parents are kept well informed of anticipated orthodontic needs and, when the time is just right, a treatment plan can be developed and coordinated in our office between two highly trained and experienced specialists, our Pediatric Dentists and Orthodontist.
We take pride in our “extra special” Orthodontic Care. We strive to provide the highest quality treatment while meeting all of your child’s oral healthcare needs in one location at the same time. We can coordinate routine cleanings and routine dental treatment with orthodontic adjustment visits. Busy families appreciate “one-stop” dental and orthodontic appointments. And, best of all, we can remove the orthodontic wires to provide better access for a thorough professional cleaning, any necessary cavity-detecting x-rays, and then adjust and replace the wires.

What People Say
My son has been coming here since he was 2. Love this place, its very clean, everyone is very friendly, very easy to make appointments. Most important they know how to work with kids! I have moved out of Rochester and still make the drive here. Highly recommend!
Very happy with this dental office. We've been going here since 2010 when my 2 year old son needed to be seen ASAP. Both of my boys can't wait to get their teeth cleaned and have a very positive perception of going to the dentist. Great, friendly staff.
I had an amazing time taking my 5 years old son to the dentist. All the staff were awesome and welcoming. She started the cleaning by explaining every step to my son. He even did the x-rays successfully. Again it is a relaxing visit for my son and me as well.
