Pediatric Dentistry

“Pediatric dentistry is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the oral health & unique needs of young people. After completing a four year dental school curriculum, two to three additional years of rigorous training is required to become a pediatric dentist. This specialized program of study & hands-on experience prepares pediatric dentists to meet the unique needs of your infants, children & adolescents, including persons with special health needs.

We are concerned about your child’s total health care. Good oral health is an important part of total health. Establishing us as your child’s “Dental Home” provides us the opportunity to implement preventive dental health habits that keep a child free from dental/oral disease. We focus on prevention, early detection & treatment of dental diseases, & keep current on the latest advances in dentistry for children.

Pleasant visits to the dental office promote the establishment of trust & confidence in your child that will last a lifetime. While searching for pediatric dentistry in Boise, it’s important to note that our goal, along with our staff, is to help all children feel good about visiting the dentist & to teach them how to care for their teeth. From our special Boise office design to our communication style, our main concern is what is best for your child.”
