Have your child’s teeth developed decay or been damaged? When fillings aren’t a viable option, durable dental crowns can be quite successful in restoring their smile.

Great place for your kids

"Great place for your kids. They have games  tv's, and a really cool atmosphere. The staff are really good with kids which makes it easy when trying to get the kids to go. Thank you, a kids dentist."

Dr. Shah was so patient

"I have to start off by saying my 10 year old daughter does not like to cooperate for the dentist, and was refused service at our last dental office. Dr. Shah was so patient with my daughter, and managed to make her feel comfotable enough to complete the work she needed done. Not only is Dr. Shah amazing and patient her staff are amazing too. They really know how to make their patients feel at home, and you do not find that very often. We are so thankful for all of them."

So happy we found this place

"Took my son there for the first time yesterday. He's 5 years old. The entire staff was amazing. They were all so friendly and knowledgeable. It's a great place to take your child. Titus had never been to the dentist before, and he actually wants to go back! Everyone made both my son and I comfortable. They have all kinds of things for kids to do in the waiting area, and a wall of movies for kids to watch while they are having their teeth cleaned. So so happy we found this place."
