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.

“I would recommend this office time & time again! We are 100% satisfied and comfortable​ knowing that our little one is in the BEST hands. Everyone is so very patient, kind, and understanding. I’m so incredibly happy that we were referred here! Everyone in this office deserves a big pat on the back.”

“I cannot say enough about the time and care everyone takes with my boys in both dentistry and orthodontics here. They make sure no matter what the procedure my boys are comfortable, calm, understand what is happening or going to happen. I have and continue to recommend this office.”

Candice K.

“Dr. Curt is the most patient, kind and caring dentist I have ever encountered! I brought my son in this office after a bad experience, he was traumatized and having anxiety and panic even thinking about seeing a dentist. Dr. Curt listened to him, reassured him and in one consultation and one appointment changed my son for life. I am so thankful for having found him!”

Wendy D.

“I absolutely love this office. I aways feel my kids are getting the best care from Dr. Curt and Dr. Ari. They team together to find the best path of care for my kids teeth. And the best part is their gentle care. My son has had a lot of dental work and has not once complained of pain during a procedure.”

“Great experience! I grew up going here as a kid and now my child goes here. It was his first time and he walked right back and had the best experience! All he talks about is the dentist. I recommend this office to everyone.”

Jennifer C.

“I can’t say enough about this practice! We have been patients there since oldest went for her first dental appointment, she’s now 23 and wishes she could still see Dr. Jeff! My son got hit in the mouth over the weekend with a baseball and I had to call the emergency line for the first time ever. Dr. Jeff called back within 5-7 minutes and saw my son first thing Monday!!! I love this group!!”

“LITERALLY…the BEST experience ever! I absolutely love Dr. Makowski!!! He was amazing with Levi. the girls were so great with him too. He wasn’t scared at all! X-rays done and he has a small fracture near the root from a fall last week. But it looks like it’s gonna be fine and his permanent teeth will not be affected. Everyone we encountered were so patient and gentle with their tiny clients …. I love when people love what they do!!!”

“They are AMAZING!!! We see Dr Elizabeth and she is AWESOME!!! My one daughter is very anxious and nervous about everything and she LOVES Dr Elizabeth! She is gentle, kind and caring. I would definitely recommend this place!”

Stacey M.

“Been really happy so far since we started coming here. My twins are excited to go and have started out having good experiences at the dentist, which is great for them — and their mom!”

Kimberly S.

“My 6 year old daughter had two cavities that our family dentist was not able to fill and get her to comply with the treatment. Coming to Pediatric Dentistry was the best plan. Then had a meeting to get her comfortable. And split the visit into two separate treatments due to her anxiety. But in the end we got both teeth filled and now she is trying to be a part of the no cavity club! All smiles over here!”

Melissa J.

“My children have been patients here for years. The staff is very friendly, my kids always feel comfortable coming to get their teeth cleaned. They actually look forward to going to the dentist! It’s also very easy to get an appointment, very flexible and accommodating.”

Tamara C.

“Such a friendly staff! I absolutely love taking my kids here and my kids enjoy going. I love the environment and would recommend this amazing dentistry!!!”

Brittney T.

“I adore every single staff member! I saw Dr Curt for 18 years. And now my four kids see him. And we just started with Dr. Ari and braces. I can’t say enough about how awesome they are! My girls don’t even mind a trip to the dentist.”
