We love working with kids and take a completely different approach with our younger patients. Positive dental experiences during childhood give kids a headstart on a lifetime of healthy smiles.

Our Kid-Friendly Amenities
We understand that a child’s dental experience isn’t just about the team caring for them, it’s about the atmosphere in the office as well. We’ve gone to great lengths to serve as the children’s dentist kids love to visit. When your kiddo is in our care, they’ll enjoy:

Your Child’s First Visit
Just as our younger patients have their own unique needs for communication, they also have their own needs for dental treatment. Issues such as proper oral hygiene, thumb sucking and tooth eruption are of great concern to Dr. Gallagher because they can seriously affect the development of a child’s smile. He addresses these issues with exceptional kindness, patience, and understanding.
Dental Cleanings & Exams for Kids
Regular dental visits starting no later than six months after the eruption of your child’s first tooth are the best way to introduce good oral habits like brushing and flossing. You’re welcome to come back to the treatment area with your child as he or she gets familiar with our office. Dr. Gallagher will thoroughly discuss his findings with you after your child’s cleaning and exam, along with his recommendations for dental treatment and long-term maintenance.
In addition to cleanings and exams, we’re a kid-friendly dentist providing comprehensive dental services to kids of all ages.
- Protective Dental Sealants

- Tooth-Colored Fillings

Positive dental experiences put kids on the right path to a lifetime of healthy and vibrant smiles. We promise to make your child’s time with us enjoyable, effective, and fun!
Cost of Treatment
Finding an affordable kids’ dentist is important when you’re budgeting for multiple family members. We take a conservative approach to dentistry and do everything we can to avoid unnecessary, costly treatments when possible. We are an insurance-friendly practice and offer an in-house dental savers plan for those who are uninsured. If you need additional financial assistance, we happily accept financing through CareCredit® to provide you with manageable monthly payments.
