About Us:

Just the sight of your children's smiles brightens every room your sons and daughters enter.

At Young and Polite Children's Dentistry, we care about keeping those smiles healthy and delightful.

We know that visiting the dentist can be scary. As pediatric dentists and parents ourselves, we understand the importance of relating to your child and creating a warm, caring atmosphere for treatment.

Children have truly unique dental needs and we cater to such specific demands. We are trained beyond general dental school in the management and treatment of children's developing teeth, child behavior, physical growth and development as well as the latest techniques like sedation dentistry.
