Pediatric dentist Dr. Joel B. Shields

meet the doctor

Dr. Shields philosophy, "first visit by first birthday" sums it up. Getting an early start in regular dental care is an important step on the road to teaching your child healthy life time habits. The first dental visit should occur shortly after the first tooth erupts between 6 to 12 months of age. Beginning tooth and mouth examinations early may lead to detection of early stages of tooth decay that can be easily treated. We are concerned about your child total health care. Good oral health is an important part of total health. Establishing us as your child's Dental Home provides us the opportunity to implement preventative dental health habits that can keep a child healthy and safe for a lifetime.
