About Us
Mission Logo
As a professional advocate of oral health for infants, children, and adolescents, Smile Street Pediatric Dentistry strives first and foremost to educate local community on early cavity prevention. The oral condition is strongly correlated with the overall health of an individual.
Therefore, the foundation for our practice depends on a strong program for preventative care by enforcing solid oral hygiene practices within a positive environment.
By promoting the establishment of a dental home for all children as early as one year old, a family can minimize the likelihood of dental decay in their kids.
Book an Appointment

Our goal at heart is simple - create a healthy smile for your child by:

Stressing that dental caries can be contagious, thus minimizing transmission of causative bacteria.
Implementing an oral home care regimen specific to each individual’s needs.
Treating dental decay, but also finding a solution to the cause and preventing future occurrences
Teaching healthy eating practices for happier teeth. We extra two to three years of specialized training.
We look forward to making your child's dental visit a positive life experience!
