While it’s extremely important to practice good oral hygiene as an adult, it’s also equally as important for children – even if they don’t have their permanent teeth yet. At Brooklawn Dental Associates, our pediatric dentist is trained to provide specialized, high-quality care for young children and adolescents.

Beyond the treatment itself, we also understand that seeing a dentist might feel a little scary or overwhelming for many children. With this in mind, we are always as gentle and caring as possible throughout their visit.
We offer numerous pediatric dental services, but some of the most common ones include:

Whether your child needs repairs due to an injury, or a cavity has formed, we can restore their smile to look and feel as good as new. Our restorative options include:
