About VK Pediatric Dentistry


We specialize in pediatric dentistry. A pediatric dentist is a dentist who went through an additional 2-3 years of training to specialize in only one thing - children's dentistry! Advanced behavior techniques, more specialized training, specific dental materials, and a kid friendly environment all help set your child up for success at the dentist.


Our goal is to establish a relationship with you and your children from their first tooth (infant) until they can transition to an adult dentist (teens). We aim to give kids the knowledge, skills, and experiences to have the best dental care possible. Not only do we want each visit to be educational but we also do our best to ensure your children have a great time when they’re with us!   


If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment for your kids, don’t hesitate to contact us today!
