Welcome to the Tour of our Toms River office

Pediatric Dentistry is the specialty of dentistry that focuses on the unique dental and oral health needs of infants, children, and teenagers. Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. Specialized training for pediatric dentists involves an additional two years of rigorous education and training, combined in a dental school and hospital setting. This experience also includes children with special healthcare needs and Autism.

Just as pediatricians are the physicians that provide medical care for children, pediatric dentists specialize in providing dental services for children. One of the most important reasons to choose a pediatric dentist is the special knowledge and training that helps make the entire dental experience positive and therefore helps create a lifelong commitment to good oral health.
