We’ll be sure to take our time to answer all your questions, too! We want to help you set your child up for a lifetime of dental health.

Why a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist?

Just like you bring your child to a Pediatrician for specialized medical care, your child should go to a Pediatric Dentist for child-focused dental care. Pediatric dentists have two to three years of additional specialized dental training beyond regular dentists. Pediatric dentists specialize in caring for children from birth to 18 years old, children with special needs (Autism, Downs Syndrome, sensory issues, etc...) need a specialized type of office that can accommodate them. Dr. Frank C. Pettinato II, DMD, MS, is a Board-Certified pediatric dentist, which means he has significant knowledge and expertise. He has demonstrated that he follows the highest standard of care, and has been tested and certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

We believe that tiny mouths deserve tiny tools and gentle treatment. We offer everything a normal dentist does - x-rays, cleanings, tooth restoration, and more – all on a child’s level. We can alert you to ways to help your child avoid tooth decay that can lead to painful cavities. And we continue to treat children’s teeth as they mature through their teen years.

Your Child Can Relax During Treatment

Parents aren't the only ones who love us! Kids and teens especially appreciate our office amenities. We offer great ways for your child to relax and be entertained while with us. Our comfort amenities include warm blankets, TVs and video games in the treatment rooms, and choices of flavored toothpaste and fluoride. And every child gets a special prize from our gumball machine toy tower at the end of each visit. Before you know it, your child will ask how soon they can revisit our office!
