What is the goal of our practice?
Our goal is to provide exceptional dental care in a caring and child-friendly environment to all children. We want your child to feel positive about his or her experience in our office every time he or she steps into our door! With this is mind, a variety of techniques are available to give your child the best chance for a pleasant dental experience.
In our office, it is truly our goal to help lay the foundation for a lifetime of good oral health. It is my hope that through preventive measures, my patients will not experience dental cavities. Herrin Pediatric Dentistry stresses prevention and will work to provide your child with the skills and knowledge to prevent dental disease. If a cavity does occur, it is our goal to address what is causing the cavity and provide strategies to help prevent future cavities in addition to filling the tooth.
At Herrin Pediatric Dentistry, we hope that each and every child leaves with a smile and that we live up to our motto of “Small Mouths, Big Smiles” for all of our patients!
