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, Drs. Herer, Patenio, Mahmoud, and Krishnamurthy strive to provide the highest quality of care for all patients that walk through the doors. All of the pediatric dentists 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.

5 Ways to Help Prevent Kids Tooth Decay! 

  1. Eat healthy!  and be sure to drink fluoridated water.
  2. Don’t share utensils with your child or “clean” their pacifier by putting it into their mouth.  You can transfer cavity – causing germs to your child.
  3. Take your child to their 1st dental visit, no later than their 1st birthday.
  4. Use fluoridated toothpaste!  As soon as the teeth come through the gums, a fluoride toothpaste is recommended.   Remember:  brush for 2 minutes, for 2 times daily!
  5. When your child is the proper age, be sure to ask your pediatric dentist about applying sealants to the chewing surfaces of the teeth!
