Did you know...

All children need regular dental care starting at age 3. Our services provide quality, full-service dental care for children ages 3-20 (ages 1 and 2 on a case-by-case basis.) Our pediatric dentists offer a comfortable, child-friendly environment where children always feel welcome.
It`s important to take your child to the dentist to make sure their teeth are growing in properly. Whether it's their baby teeth or adult teeth, if spaces for teeth are not available, the teeth will grow in crooked and cause future problems.

Children`s teeth are very sensitive in their early years, containing tiny grooves that trap food and cause tooth decay. Our dentists will provide a sealant, along with a regular check-up, to protect your child's teeth and prevent cavities.

We accept

  • Medicaid
  • Most commercial insurances

Your child will never be refused services, regardless of your income.Our children's dental program will make sure your child receives the best care at an affordable cost.

If you do not have insurance, care is provided on a sliding fee scale. Please call your dental center and speak with a Human Service Counselor.
