Our office offers some of the following features:

Safety for Patients

Providing a safe environment, comfortable atmosphere, and fun experience is our number one priority for each patient. The Covid-19 pandemic has reshaped how we think about healthcare, which is why our office has taken extra precautionary measures to ensure that our families are safe during each visit. To provide the safest environment we have implemented air purifiers, sneeze guards, electronic check-in processes, low aerosol protocols and much more into our office. For more information regarding our safety measures and new protocols visit our news page.

Dental Health Education

We are passionate about going above and beyond in order to teach kids engaging ways on how to maintain a healthy smile! Incorporating dental education into our visits helps to improve a child’s oral health after they leave the office. Visit our kid’s club page to download cool activities to get started on dental education today!

Open-Door Policy

We believe that parents play a vital role in their child’s appointment. We encourage parents to be with their child throughout the entire dental appointment. This provides comfort and ease to both child and parent! We value our parents and want them to be involved.

Local Pediatric Dentist in Advance NC You Can Trust

Our team consists of pediatric specialists, general dentists and highly trained staff, who focus on providing your child with a dental visit that goes way beyond the basics to make sure their appointment is safe, relaxed, informative, and fun. We consider parents and guardians to be a part of our team and we welcome them to be with their child throughout the entire dental appointment.

We specialize in working with children who have behavioral challenges or special needs. We value our patients and believe in providing a knowledgeable and safe atmosphere that caters to each unique smile. Please specify your child’s needs when making an appointment so that we can provide the proper provider and treatment plan. All questions are welcome in order to establish confidence and trust at your local pediatric dental office!
