Dr-E-Donaldson.jpgOn Being a Pediatric Dental Specialist: "I love working with children, especially the fidgety ones who are seeing a dentist for the first time. By making dentistry fun for kids, I feel that I'm starting them on the road to good dental health and a lifetime of beautiful smiles.

Office Hours

h-pediatric1.jpgWe are open to serve you, answer questions or schedule an appointment during the following hours:

Monday – Friday: 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., 1:15 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Appointment Policies

We try our best to accommodate our patients as much as possible when scheduling appointments. We have found that children with extensive dental work or preschool-aged children are better to be seen early in the morning when they are fresher and can have a more positive experience. Some appointments may require the child to miss some school; however, these are considered excused absences. With continued care, appointments during school can be kept to a minimum.

As a courtesy, it is our practice to call you the day before your child's appointment. If your phone number has changed, it is important that you update your information as soon as possible so we can reach you to confirm your upcoming appointment. We request a 24-hour notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment, but we ask for your help as a courtesy to all of our patients.
