fun & friendly
Take one step into our friendly office designed in every way to help kids through the experience. Colorful animal wildlife and “under-the-sea” decor gives our place a playful outdoorsy feel! We wear colorful scrubs in cartoon designs to put kids at ease. We are careful about the words we use. Dental health is too important for kids to be frightened, so we use a gentle tone with playful, comforting, and encouraging language. Just as we decorate and communicate to children on their level — we provide dental chairs and other equipment sized and designed for kids so they can feel comfortable.
Dr. Greg Mertes and Dr. Kelsey Stehli and their staff are pleased to provide compassionate pediatric dental care specifically designed to fit the needs of each child. Pediatric Dentistry is an area of specialization that focuses on the treatment of children from birth through adolescence with a concentration on growth, development, and behavioral guidance for children. We have extensive experience with children who have developmental or behavioral challenges. Dr. Mertes and Dr. Stehli are specially trained to care for all children using methods that promote strong foundations in prevention and home care. Whether your child is special needs or not, we believe everyone deserves a special attention.
welcoming new patients
It’s our goal to help children overcome potentially fearful and anxious situations so they can start young and stay positive about dental care all their lives. We love working with children and treat each patient with gentle kindness and patience. We believe that the best dental care is based on a relationship of trust and understanding between our team, you and your child.
