Even if you limit sticky sweets and make sure your children brush their teeth twice a day, cavities can still happen. About 3 of every 4 school-age children get at least 1 cavity. A trip to the pediatric dentist can take care of your child’s cavities with minimal stress, anxiety, and discomfort. 

Whether it’s baby teeth or permanent adult teeth that need a dental filling, we will take care of your child and ensure their comfort and dental health from start to finish. Contact us via online form or by calling 888.339.8108.
