About Us

Children are not just tiny adults; they have special needs that must be addressed for them to receive proper care. Just as with general medicine, there are dentists who specialize in the care of children. Here at South Gaston Pediatric Dentistry, we are home to some of the best.

If you are searching for a dental provider who will listen to your concerns about your child’s oral health, makes them feel empowered when it comes to their own care, and makes certain you are always well informed when it comes down to making a decision, we are the dental home for you.

Here at South Gaston Pediatric Dentistry, we want every visit to be enjoyable, educational, and 100% positive for your child. Our mission is to help children develop the right habits for a healthy future while addressing any problems present, doing it all in an environment that is safe and welcoming. If you feel your child would best be served by a pediatric dentist, give us a call.

Why Should You Consider a Pediatric Dentist for Your Child?

Simply put, children have different needs than adults, both physically and emotionally. To be a pediatric dentist, one must complete a standard dental school program and then complete an additional two to three years of training focused exclusively on the treatment of children from infancy through their teenage years. Our doctors have completed this training and know how to create early dental experiences that put your child at ease while building confidence and knowledge. We are confident that we offer the best care for your child.


Meet Our Doctors

Our top priority is caring for your child’s oral health through
education, prevention, positive motivation and quality treatment.
We truly enjoy working with and teaching children. Our passion and enthusiasm for teaching kids the skills necessary for excellent oral health is seen through the fun and energetic environment created for our patients.
We hope to make every experience a positive one for our patients, and we hope that through positive reinforcement and motivation we can encourage patients and parents to invest in excellent oral health.
