Growing Smiles employs clinical and clerical staff members dedicated to providing state-of-the-art preventative care and dental treatment to each of its young patients. Our goal is to make your child’s visit both positive and pleasant and our approach to treatment includes guidance, encouragement, rewards, and incentives. By using a “show and tell” concept, our dental team explains procedures before we perform them which not only eases a child’s mind but also promotes understanding and acceptance of examination and treatment.
