It is not necessary that all children visit a Pedodontists, (a dentist specializing in children dentistry) for their dental care.  Most children are happy at our office. Children offer a breath of fresh air to our day, and the things they tell us can sometimes be enlightening and other times downright amusing.

We treat our little patients as the individuals they are and proceed with treatment at a pace that allows them to be comfortable and relaxed. We know that a good experience at the dentist can make all the difference in the world for little patients as they mature into adulthood.

We  Have Experience in Treating Children

 A good portion of our adult patients began their dental treatment as children because we have been treating children for over 40 years.  Many of them now bring their children for their dental visits.

The Big Tooth board and Dr. Bob’s Smiles are always a big hit. After the check-up appointment, we take a picture in front of the Big Tooth board, and then we print and post it on Dr. Bob’s Smiles board. We give the photo to the child at the beginning of their next appointment.  It is a fun way to see how the children have grown.  Parents love it because they like to keep it in the child’s scrapbook.  Some of the adults who were once children in our dental family insist on the Big Tooth presence.

A Pediatric Dentist Stops Treating after Teenage Years

A pediatric dentist only treats up to (and some including) the teenage years. There is continuity at our office because we treat all ages. We have in the past and will continue to refer any child to a pediatric dentist if and when those services become apparent. We invite you to bring your children to our office and keep them here. We would love to meet them!
