Our office strives to provide quality dental care in a gentle, child-oriented environment. We believe all of our patients including infants, children and adolescents are to be treated with respect and compassion. We believe that using patience and perseverance, most children are capable of dental treatment without the use of sedatives or general anesthesia. Our teams hope to make our dentistry enriching and fun for kids.
When treating a child's permanent tooth, our hope is to preserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible. When treating a child's primary (baby) tooth, we try to restore it in a way that would minimize the need for further treatment of that tooth.
Chris Lugo, DMD, Jenny-Lee Kramar, BDS, Kendra E. Farmer, DDS, Kristin Johannsen, DDS, MSD, Chad Slaven, DDS, MSD and Paula Stepp, DMD, MS make treatment decisions between the parent and the doctor as a mutual agreement, without the intrusion of third parties. We want to positively impact a child's dental experience and promote lifelong dental health.
