We attempt to provide each family with the most efficient and informative appointments possible. We strive to see all patients on time for their scheduled appointments. Please remember, though, that we run on children’s time, not adult time. There are times when our schedule is delayed in order to accommodate an injured child, apprehensive or scared child. Please accept our apology in advance should this occur during your appointment. We will provide the exact same courtesy if your child is need of extra time or care.


Our goal is to avoid the unexpected. However, if an emergency of concern arises, don’t hesitate to call us. Questions can be immediately answered Monday-Friday by phone ir in the office, and if the emergency should occur after office hours, call our office and the answering machine will supply our emergency phone number. A pediatric dentist or orthodontist should always be on call.

Our vision is to provide pain-free dental and orthodontic care in a comfortable, relaxed and friendly environment. We offer quick, affordable, effective, efficient and professional care to all of our patients.
