Meet Your Dentists

Both dentists and orthodontists are doctors who provide oral health care for children and adults, but they do so in different ways. Dentists focus primarily on tooth, gum and jaw health.

Pediatric Dentists

Pediatric dentists complete an extra 2-3 years of specialty training after finishing dental school just to learn about the unique oral health needs of children, including those with special needs. You take your child to a pediatrician, you should take your child to a pediatric dentist.


Orthodontists are dentists with two years of additional schooling. They specialize in straightening teeth and improving bites by using devices that correct crooked or overcrowded teeth, under bites, over bites, spaces between teeth, and jaw problems. They have achieved board certification through the American Board of Orthodontics, the only orthodontic specialty board recognized by the American Dental Association.

What People Are Saying

"My kids (4 and 6) had a great experience and were completely comfortable during their visit, exam, cleaning, and radiographs. They actually asked when they could go back."


"The team at Kids 1st are awesome, front desk, hygienists, both dentists, they are all very patient with kids that may be nervous, explaining what will happen, letting them touch or view tools prior to using them etc. We love the whole practice. Thanks!"


"Perfect first dentist experience for our son. We were in and out quickly, lots of entertainment to keep him preoccupied and everyone was very, very kind."
