Our practice philosophy is to provide exceptional orthodontic and pediatric dental care in an environment that helps to put our patients and their parents at ease. Our team approach to dentistry helps to educate and empower the patients in our practice, so they can grow up to have a positive attitude toward oral health care. We strive to make every visit a fun and positive experience, and to build self-confidence in each and every one of our patients as we would want for our own children.
Guidance of the eruption and development of the primary and permanent dentitions is an integral part of the specialty of pediatric dentistry. Pediatric dentists have the ability to recognize and differentiate abnormalities in the developing dentition as they occur.
Dr. Anokhi Bock and Dr. Ara Cho have extensive training and years of experience working with children, and developing good oral hygiene habits that last into adulthood. They are well trained in behavior management techniques, offer nitrous oxide for those children that may be a little anxious, and are licensed in conscious sedation dentistry, to give patients and their families several safe, effective options for more comfortable dental treatment for their child.
Orthodontists specialize in appropriately managing and treating developing malocclusions (abnormal jaw relationships), and dental and facial irregularities. Early diagnosis and successful treatment can have both short-term and long-term benefits while achieving the goal of ideal bite function and aesthetics.
