health & safety procedures
• As pandemic mandates lift in our communities and we work to get back to normal, the health and safety of our patients, visitors and employees remain critically important. Masks are still required for patients and visitors and employees in all Summa Health facilities. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
• Infrared temperatures will be taken for the patients, caregivers and staff upon entering the office.
• We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some throughout the office to use as needed.
• You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. Also, chairs will be staggered in the reception area at least 6 feet apart from each other.
• Please consider not bringing additional visitors to the patient’s appointment, if possible, so we can help achieve maximum social distancing between guests.

We Provide Specialized Individual Attention
We provide compassionate pediatric dental care specifically designed to fit the needs of each child. We believe that the best dental care is based on a relationship of trust and understanding between our team, you and your child. We have extensive experience with children who have developmental or behavioral challenges. Whether your child is special needs or not, we believe everyone deserves a special attention. We pride ourselves on being patient, understanding and professional.
Start Young. Smile For a Long Time!
We begin treating children at 12-18 months to give your child a good start for a lifetime of great dental care. By pre-school, your child may already have developed strong oral hygiene habits that will last a lifetime!
The Big Picture
We take a comprehensive look at pediatric dental care. Yes, we will provide exams, cleanings, x-rays when necessary and fluoride treatments. In addition, we work with you and your children to design a home care routine that includes:
- Proper brushing technique
- Diets for healthy teeth and gums
- Hygiene and growth
Our comprehensive, preventive approach helps to eliminate the need for more extensive dental work. Now that’s something to smile about!
