Pediatric dentistry involves the care, diagnosis, and treatment of children from birth until adulthood. Taking good care of a child’s primary dentition (baby teeth) is important for a number of reasons:
- Primary teeth have very large, internal pulp chambers and thin enamel. This makes decay, when it is present, spread more quickly than in adult teeth and puts primary teeth at higher risk for infection if problems are not detected early.
- Primary teeth also serve an important role in preserving space for adult teeth and regulating how quickly they develop and erupt.
- Finally, a child’s early experiences with the dentist shape can their attitude about the regular dental care for the rest of their lives. This makes having a positive first experience very important.
Our dentists, hygienists, and assistants are highly experienced at working with young children. We go out of our way to make the experience fun, friendly, quick and easy, so that children see a visit to our office as something to look forward to. We have a kid friendly reception area with many books and toys (plus coffee for tired parents), and a well stocked treasure chest and sticker dispensers for after the visit. Read below to see what others have to say about their children’s experiences at our office!
High Quality Service
We have been going to OZ Family Dentistry for 18+ years. There is no one better. Everyone is extremely friendly and kind. Dr. Dan is great with the kids and knows just what to say to them to make them feel at ease. (Published on RateABiz)
High quality service, professional, great with children!
All three of my children were seen today, and like every previous time we’ve been to Oz Dentistry, the service and care were incredible! My young children look forward to going and the staff are amazing with them. I appreciate their willingness to discuss my children’s dental health as well as how attentive they are to their individual needs. Not to mention, they have great senses of humor and the coffee available is greatly appreciated by this mom! (Published on RateABiz)

Great with Kids!
I have a very cautious and easily scared 2 year old so I wasnt sure what to expect for his first visit. Dr. Eric was very patient and low pressure about the visit so it was easy for me to feel comfortable which in turn helped my son do much better than expected! (Published on RateABiz)
