This includes children’s fillings, crowns and prosthesis, including treatment of the often devastating nursing bottle decay. Dr. Matthews and Dr. Dai are committed to discussing all options before these procedures and answering all questions you may have. Always working towards the goal of your child’s healthy smile is our first priority.
Young children with dental pain, caries (a.k.a. cavities) and/or infection require treatment at any age—sometimes that means your child may require sedation. Of course, there are many reasons for this. Some dental procedures require your child to lie completely still, there may be a lot to fix, or the noise of the drill may be scary. The goal is always to provide the safest, most pain-free treatment for your child with the best experience possible.

Growth and Development & Braces:
As pediatric dental specialists, our doctors are experts on the growth and development of children's dentition, jaws and craniofacial structures. Early growth and development evaluation may provide your child with a more positive experience should they need braces treatment from our pediatric dentists.
While our goal is to prevent dental emergencies, we understand that the need for urgent dental care is sometimes necessary and can be a stressful experience for both parents and children. We strive to handle dental emergencies promptly and with compassion. See Our Emergencies page.
