Message From Our Doctors:
Welcome to our office! It's long overdue for the Antelope Valley to have a quality pediatric dental office. We deeply subscribe to three core values: Being Ethical, Being Compassionate and Being Quality Oriented. Children's Dentistry of AV caters to children from infancy to 18 years of age. Some children perceive dentistry in a negative way. But, at our office, we want to break those negative barriers and create an environment where kids of all ages feel comfortable and relaxed in a dental setting. Our goal is for your child to have a positive experience at every visit.
When you and your child arrive at our office, you will be asked to fill out a health history form for your child (or you may download the form from our website prior to coming in for your appointment). Upon completion of necessary paperwork, our staff will review your child’s health history form with you and discuss any concerns you may have before being brought to the exam area.
