Why pediatric dentistry?
Dr. Dove is a pediatric dentist, specializing in the treatment and prevention of dental disease, as well as the overall oral health of children. With an extra 2-3 years of specialized training in school, experience, and certification, she is uniquely qualified to treat the dental needs of infants, children, adolescents, and those with special needs.
Why choose a pediatric dentist? A pediatric patient not only has a different dentition than adults but they may have specific dental and behavioral needs that are unique to a child. These needs may include orthodontics, dental sealants, fluoride applications or home treatments, or just simply education in oral hygiene. In addition to treating existing dental problems, our office focuses on prevention through patient and parent education We like to feel that you and your child do not come to our office to have their “cavities fixed” but rather to prevent them. Our mission is to provide all of the educational tools necessary for our patients to enjoy a cavity-free future.
