We believe that early education can prepare your child for a lifetime of excellent oral health.

Experienced Pediatric Dentist
If you are a parent, you know the importance of finding a dentist who is experienced in treating children. Dr. Qureshi understands that many children have a fear of going to the dentist. Therefore, you will find that he works hard to make sure that your child’s first dental appointment is stress-free, comfortable and positive. If your child is at ease during their initial experience with the dentist, future appointments tend to go very smoothly. We invite you to bring your child in for their first appointment for a simple cleaning, or just to see our office and meet our staff. It is very important to us that both parents and children are at ease with our office.
Fluoride Treatments for Kids
Fluoride is the most effective treatment for preventing tooth decay. We apply topical fluoride in order to strengthen and protect the tooth enamel. Applying fluoride makes your child’s teeth more resistant to tooth decay, which is very important at a young age. When children are at an age where they have a craving for sugary snacks or junk food, any steps you can take to protect their teeth can help, including bringing them in for fluoride treatment. We will administer fluoride during your child’s regular dental checkups and cleanings twice a year. It is a painless and highly beneficial procedure.
Dental Sealants for Children
A dental sealant is a thin coating that is applied onto the surface of a tooth (molars and premolars). The deep grooves of molars are where a majority of tooth decay develops. We provide sealants to children to help reduce this decay by covering and protecting these grooves and making a smooth surface that is easy to clean.
