Pediatric Dentistry

Since 1968, our team of Pediatric Dentists and experienced and friendly team have specialized in making all children and adolescents feel very comfortable at the dental office.  Our board certified doctors have over 125 years of combined experience between them, are active members of the American and Michigan Dental Associations, American and Michigan Academies of Pediatric Dentistry, and several are boarded to provide hospital level dental care at DMC Children’s hospital. Our pediatric dentists are proud to play a role in educating the next generation of dental specialists through affiliation with the University of Detroit Mercy Dental School.  We are very confident that one of our five pediatric dentists will be the right fit for your child’s dental care needs.  We know that every child is special, and it is our goal from the very beginning to understand each child’s needs to allow for excellent dental health in a family friendly and comfortable environment for our patients and parents from the start.

A child’s first dental visit should be scheduled around his/her first birthday. It is important for them to become comfortable with visiting the dentist. Prior to this visit, teething infants still require care of the gums before that first tooth erupts. Good diet and healthy primary teeth allow for clear speech, a good self-image, and healthier permanent teeth. As children grow older, we provide many preventative measures to keep your child’s teeth clean and healthy. At times, there may be dental emergencies, such as a toothache or knocked out tooth. We are here for your child if such an incident were to occur. We care for both primary and permanent teeth and believe that excellent care and maintenance is critical to the development of a healthy adult set of teeth. We do this with the latest technology in dental care for your child.
