Richmond Pediatric Dentistry
The American Dental Association (ADA) defines pediatric dentistry as an age-defined specialty that provides both primary and comprehensive preventive and therapeutic oral health care for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health care needs.
Our goal is to improve the oral health of Richmond’s children by teaching our patients and their families how to prevent tooth decay, and to provide optimal dental treatment when needed. We welcome the opportunity to help your family create a lifetime of healthy smiles.
