Why a pediatric dentist?

"Dr. Keller really puts my childrens' anxieties at ease. He is so friendly and funny. Not to mention accommodating to us. Thank you Dr. Keller. By the way, your staff is awesome!"

Pediatric dentistry is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the oral health of young people.  Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry.  A pediatric dentist has 2-3 years of specialty training following dental school and limits his/her practice to treating children only.  This specialized program of study and hands-on experience prepares pediatric dentists to meet the needs of infants, children, adolescents, and people with special health care needs.

We are concerned about your child’s total health care.  Good oral health is an important part of total health.  Establishing our office as your dental home provides us with the opportunity to implement preventative dental health habits that keep a child free from dental/ oral disease.  We focus on prevention, early detection and treatment of dental diseases, and keep current on the latest advances in dentistry for children.

Pleasant visits to the dental office promote the establishment of trust and confidence in your child that will last a lifetime.  Our goal is to help all children feel good about visiting the dentist and to teach them how to care for their teeth.  From our special office designs to our communication style, our main concern is what is best for your child.
