Pediatric Dentistry

An advocate of early preventative dentistry, Dr. Praveena Shetty believes in establishing a dental home for infants, toddlers, and adolescents. In accordance with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry children should have their first dental visit as early as 6 months or shortly after eruption of the first tooth. This establishes early intervention, developmental assessment, nutritional counseling and parental education to prevent early childhood tooth decay. It helps to keep parents informed as to the growth, development and proper oral health care of their children from the very beginning. It also makes our little ones get familiarized with the dentist, dental office and staff.

It is our goal to ensure that children and parents are educated and informed on the ways to care for these new teeth and the negative consequences of poor diet, nutrition, and dental care. We provide all services for children including X-rays, exams, cleanings, sealants, fluoride treatment, fillings, pulpotomies (root canal on baby teeth), crowns, space maintainers etc.
