why choose us


Why bring your child to South Shore Children’s Dentistry?

Our primary focus is to spread light and love to our patients, their families, the community, and the environment. Kind, compassionate, and highly advanced pediatric dentistry is simply how we do it! Our practice’s treatment philosophy differs from others in that we believe in prevention and education for your child because their total wellbeing should be built on behaviors, not procedures. The lessons they’ll learn here will last them a lifetime.

Individualized attention for you and your child are a top priority. We have remained committed to being an independent practice, not influenced by the financial goals of a larger corporation. This means our family-owned small business will treat you like family, not a number.

The full individual is what we care about most, not just a mouthful of teeth. Your child’s beautiful smile is just a gateway to their soul so we aim to take good care of more than their pearly whites.

Spreading light, love, and sunshine — all the time!

Our team is committed to helping raise a generation of children that love going to the dentist rather than fearing it, and that guiding principle shows up in everything we do. We love having fun and laughing with your children while they’re in our chairs just as much as we love educating and helping them maintain the best possible level of oral health. When you and your children walk through our doors, we hope you feel as warm as a summer day at the beach!

We often get asked why we don’t have TVs on our ceilings and more electronic games throughout our office – and our reason is pretty simple!  We love our patients and we want to get to know them!  We want to talk to them – find out what’s going on in their lives – and let them know how important they are to us!  Our belief is that it’s hard to do that when you’re staring at a screen.  This may seem like a small thing, but it’s a big deal to us!​

Step into our office.

We like to think of our office as the perfect combination of state-of-the-art equipment and small comforts that make going to the dentist enjoyable. Our treatment areas are decorated with fun themes and we give prizes to all our Smile Stars so that a trip to the dentist really does feel exciting.

We embrace digital x-rays and use pediatric-sized x-ray sensors along with up-to-date technology that gives us the ability to operate in a chartless environment. This allows us quick and easy access to your child’s important information all while giving them the most optimal care tailored to their age and size – not to mention helps us save a ton of trees.

While we’re all for the best possible early dental care, we also believe in an “Image Gently” approach. Though x-rays can be a necessary component of preventative health, we do believe there is a balance. We only take x-rays when we feel they are absolutely necessary and do not believe in routinely taking them.

Our values

The reason we do the work we do is that we love children and serving our community. It’s only natural that this extends into various outreach initiatives that directly benefit the kids and families on the South Shore. Whether it’s a college scholarship or just a demo of some quick oral health tips, we love leaving a positive mark on our community.
