We are the best kids’ dentist in the area and focus on providing oral health care for infants, children, and teenagers. We have had additional training after completing a four years of dental school and only treat kids. This makes us dedicated to their health and experience.
The Right Dentist For Your Child
Infants, children, and adolescents are not the most cooperative, nor the most long-suffering, dental patients. We are specifically trained to examine and treat children in a way that makes them feel comfortable and at ease. Our friendly staff always keeps current with all the latest technologies and advances in children’s dentistry. Our office is designed to be bright, colorful and kid-friendly. We try and create an environment that isn’t intimidating or scary in any way to our young patients, and provide interactive games, fun toys and entertainment as a distraction for children of all ages.
Our staff will help educate you as to how to avoid dental diseases and tooth decay, which will include information on what foods your child should avoid eating or drinking and how to properly brush and floss. With a thorough approach to preventative care, we are truly the best kids’ dentist around.

The earlier you have your child start visiting a children’s dentist, the better the chances of preventing short and long term dental problems that can affect their oral health for the rest of their lives. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry suggests parents have their children visit a children’s dentist every six months, beginning with their first birthday. Dental issues identified early on and treated as early as possible, can make a considerable difference between good or poor dental health. Additionally, dental problems like crooked teeth are much easier to fix when a person is young. However, if they are ignored, they could cause the child to become extremely self-conscious about their appearance, and hinder their ability to interact normally in social situations.
We believe that infants, children, and adolescents need more of a focus on preventative care, even more than adults do. As the best kids’ dentist in San Antonio, we will be glad to discuss everything you can do so that your children will avoid cavities and gum disease.
