A trusted name in SD community with over twenty years of dental experience
It is getting harder and harder to choose a dentist for children who are experienced and caring enough. We often hear this from our patients who have tried several other kids dentists before they came to us. We are located in the city of Chula Vista and there are several other pediatric dentists in the neighborhood. Our doctors are some of the caring ones in San Diego. They will fully analyze the child’s dental health and oral health. Based on their analysis, they proceed with a plan. They always explain to parents what the plans are and as to why a child might need a particular dental treatment.
Is your child afraid to see a pediatric dentist?
This has been the case with many of our patients but things start to change once they come into our office. Our friendly and professional staff will take the time to calm your child and to make sure they are being treated very nicely and with great patience. Our Chula Vista Pediatric Dentists are also very nice and patient. They understand how important it is for the child to learn and understand that his or her oral health is very important. How they treat children will affect the way they will think about going to dentists for the rest of their lives. We want to take that fear away.
