Testimonials

  • I have never had such an easy pain free visit at any other office! All of the staff are so friendly and always helpful as well. The doctors patience and professionalism was key. The Isodry helped so much to make my experience more comfortable. I also have issues with numbing, but Dr. Patel made sure and went the extra mile to ensure I was numb and pain free before she started.

  • I had a great first appointment here today! The staff is very friendly and caring. I love the use of technology to show patients areas that need treatment or special care. My husband is not a huge fan of dentists and he recommended our family to switch and I am so happy we did!

  • One of the biggest fears of going to the dentist is the needle that is injected in your gums causing you to want to turn into the Hulk and wreak havoc on the town. I went to this dental office and sat in the chair as flashbacks of past dental experiences tried to convince me to be like Michael Jackson and beat it. To my surprise this was one of the best dental experiences I've had. I did not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure. Combined with a friendly staff and clean location this dental office will change your tune on what the normal dentist visit entails.

  • I cannot thank you enough for the manner in which you assisted me through this process. By the time I saw you, my infection was so advanced that I was beginning to feel extremely ill. I think some divine intervention may have been involved when I picked up the phone and called your office and I will be forever grateful for your assistance. You are a very rare and special individual and David and I feel fortunate to have experienced our paths crossing.

Your child’s first visit

child's first visitWe want to make a good first impression when your child visits for the first time! A first dental visit, ideally beginning at age three, is usually short. We may have you hold your child during the exam. We may ask you wait in the reception area during part of the visit so we can build a relationship with your child.

During the visit, we’ll gently examine your child’s teeth and gums. We may take x-rays, clean his or her teeth and apply topical fluoride to help protect against decay. We’ll review with you how to clean and care for your child’s teeth. We will also provide nutritional counseling to ensure that your child is off to a healthy start for their dental health.

We suggest you prepare your child the same way you would before their first haircut or visit to receive another professional service. We suggest you bring your child to preview our office and speak positively about your own dental experiences You may also read books to them about going to the dentist and review with them what to expect during their first visit.

Baby teeth are important. They hold space for permanent teeth are needed for chewing, biting, speech and appearance. It’s important to maintain a healthy diet and daily hygiene. We believe in preventive care and use dental sealants to protect your child’s teeth. These plastics are bonded to the chewing surfaces of decay-prone back teeth and help set the foundation for your child’s lifetime of good oral health.

Cavities don’t just happen; they are often due to a diet high in sugary foods and a lack of brushing. Each time we eat, an acid reaction occurs inside our mouths as bacteria digest the sugars. This reaction lasts approximately 20 minutes. The acid can weaken the tooth structure and cause cavities. When someone eats foods high in carbohydrates and sugars they also tend to have thicker saliva, which in turn allows more of the acid-producing bacteria that can cause cavities.

Cavity prevention tips

When will my baby’s teeth come in?

A child’s first baby teeth are usually the two bottom front teeth at about 6-8 months old. Look for the four upper front teeth next; the rest of your baby’s 20 primary teeth will usually come in pairs along the sides of the jaw until the child is about two and a half years old.

Between ages of five and six, look for the first permanent teeth to erupt. Some permanent teeth replace baby teeth and some don’t. Don’t worry if some teeth are a few months early or late.
