A Friendly Dental Home For Every Child

We understand that children are not just small adults and they are not always able to be patient and cooperative during dental procedures. As pediatric dentists, we know how to examine and treat children in ways that make them as comfortable as possible. We offer a wide range of treatment options, as well as expertise and training to care for your child's teeth, gums, and mouth, in order to provide a team-approach to caring for your child.

What Is A Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric dentists are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. They have the experience and qualifications to care for a child's teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood.

Our Practice

Working as a team, Dr. Herer, Dr. Patenio and Dr. Mahmoud strive to provide the highest quality of care for all patients that walk through the doors. All of the doctors in our practice have completed four years of dental school, followed by at least two years of residency training in dentistry for infants, children, teens, and children with special needs.

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month and the team at Children’s dentistry group is committed to staying active in the community.  Each year we travel to local school and programs to educate children on proper oral hygiene and good dietary habits.  We offer free presentations that are fun and interesting for the kids, including an exciting experiment.  We also donate goody bags that include toothbrushes and activity books to get the kids started on their oral hygiene journey.  If your organization or your child’s school is interested in scheduling a presentation for children ages 3-5 , please contact our event coordinator, Rachel, at (847) 726-0300.  This is our 7th year and last February we visited 30 locations and got to meet with over 2000 children in our community.  We look forward to seeing that number grow every year!
