At our practice, we enjoy caring for patients of all ages, including children. We are pleased to provide pediatric dentistry to help you keep your child’s smile in good health. We encourage you to bring your child to our dental office every six months for a regular dental exam and cleaning. During this visit, our friendly dentist and dental team will gently clean your child’s teeth and check for signs of dental problems, such as tooth decay. Each member of our dental team is caring and gentle, and we are certain to put your child at ease. We understand that it is important to build a positive, trusting relationship between your child and the dentist at a young age, and we are dedicated to ensuring that your child feels comfortable and safe at our office. If you have any questions about your child’s dental health or oral development, we welcome you to ask us during the visit or by calling our dental office.
In addition to bringing your child to our office for regular check-ups, it is important that you help your child establish good oral hygiene habits at home. Teach your child to brush and floss their teeth every day, and help them maintain a balanced, healthy diet. We invite you to call or visit our dental office today to learn more about pediatric dentistry and how we can care for you and your family.

Solea Laser Questions & Answers
Q: Is Solea good for kids?
A: It’s great for kids. It’s faster, for most procedures they don’t need a shot and we don’t have to use the drill for cavities or scalpel for gum surgery. They won’t have a numb lip, so they can eat and drink right after their appointment.
Q: Is Solea safe for kids? Do I have to worry about radiation?
A: Yes, it’s safe. Solea is a medical device that has been cleared by the FDA to cut enamel, gums and bone. All you need to do is wear protective eyewear that we’ll provide during your appointment.
Q: Is Solea really pain-free?
A: For the majority of procedures Solea is pain-free, some patients tell us that they feel cold air, but no pain.
Q: I heard about anesthesia-free, no needle procedures (Solea), can you tell me a little more about it?
A: Solea is a dental laser that we use to replace the drill for cavities and the scalpel for gum surgery.
A: With Solea we don’t have to give you a novocaine shot for the majority of procedures. The appointment is faster because we don’t have to wait for you to get numb.
A: Since we don’t administer novocaine for the majority of procedures, you won’t leave with a numb lip after the procedure, so you can eat and drink right after your appointment.
A: We can also do multiple procedures in one appointment because when we don’t have to use novocaine, we can work in different areas of your mouth.
Q: What types of procedures can be done with Solea?
A: The majority of procedures can be done with Solea – from cavities to oral surgery, with the exception of root canals and endo.
Q: Is Solea covered by insurance?
A: Yes, it is. Solea procedures are covered the same way traditional procedures would be covered. Solea is a new technology we’re using that’s replacing the drill, so billing codes are the same.
Q: My child needs gum surgery, can you use Solea? Or, my child needs cavities filled, can you use Solea?
A: You’ll need to come in for a consultation before we can answer that question, but for the majority of gum surgeries, with Solea you’d experience virtually no bleeding, since the laser cauterizes as it cuts, there are no stitches, less post-operative pain, and for most cases you won’t need a shot. For the majority of cavities the procedure will be anesthesia-free, needle-free, drill-free and virtually pain-free.
