While our goal is to prevent dental disease, we understand that sometimes, even with the best home care, cavities still form. We will utilize digital x-rays and a comprehensive clinical examination to properly diagnose your child. Dr. Melanie will then discuss with you the recommended treatments as well as alternatives, allowing you to make the best decision for you and your child. We have TVs in the treatment rooms as well as nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help ease some of your child’s dental anxiety. We also utilize the services of a board certified pediatric anesthesiologist so that your child can have his/her dentistry completed while asleep.
