Mission and Vision
Our mission is to provide the children we serve with the highest quality oral health care in the safest, most empathetic and compassionate environment possible.
Our vision is for the community to view Kidsteethonly as the home of the highest quality pediatric dental care, and to have a generation who recognizes and prioritizes the role that oral health plays in their overall well-being.
As Board Certified specialists in pediatric dentistry, we understand that kids aren’t just tiny adults. Children think, understand, communicate, and see their world differently than grown-ups do thanks to their growing brains! In our office, we know how to connect with our patients no matter how big or small they are.
We also understand that while baby teeth are made of the same “stuff” as adult teeth, they can’t always be treated the same. In many cases, treating baby teeth like adult teeth can lead to failure. By taking into account our patients’ physical development, mental growth and dental needs, our goal is to provide every child with a solid foundation for oral health they can carry into adulthood!
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a pediatric dentist?
A good analogy is a pediatrician. A pediatric dentist is not only a “general dentist,” but also specializes in childrens' oral heath treatment. This requires an additional 2 years of training after dental school in a credentialed certificate residency program. And just like a pediatrician, you do not typically need a referral to establish your child's dental home at Kidsteethonly.
I think my child has tongue-tie or lip-tie...can you help?!
Yes we can! Children with tongue-tie and/or lip-tie may have trouble with nursing, breastfeeding, cleaning/spacing of upper front teeth, transitioning to solid foods, speech, or sleep. If after thorough evaluation your child needs treatment, we offer laser frenectomy in calming and family-centered environment.
Is there an age range of patients you see?
Yes, we only care for children between the ages of newborn to 18.
Do you accept dental insurance?
Families choose to bring their children to our office because of the highest quality care and attention they recieve. Our board certified pediatric dentists will always recommend treatment that best serves your child, regardless of insurance coverage. However, treatment we recommend is often covered in part or in total by insurance.
Our office will work with you closely to help you maximize your family's insurance benefits. You will be financially responsible for any remaining cost following insurance converage.
Please do not hesitate to call our office with questions...we know insurance can be challenging to navigate and we would love to assist in any way we can.
What types of payment are accepted?
We accept Cash, Check, VISA, MasterCard, Discover and Care Credit.
*Care Credit is a healthcare specific credit card that allows families to spread out payments for more extensive treatment needs.
At what age should my child start seeing a dentist?
The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry both recommend the first dental appointment be 6 months after a child’s first tooth erupts or by 1 year old, whichever comes first.
If there is a concern, we are happy to see your child any time after birth.
What if I have a dental emergency?
If your child is an established patient and has a dental emergency after hours, please call the office and our voicemail will direct you on how to reach your dentist.
