Whether you have an infant, toddler, school-aged child, or teenager, their teeth and gums have different needs than an adult. To ensure their smile grows and develops as it should, it is best to seek the professional help of a pediatric dentist. Dr. Melissa Rozas and her team of experts are all board-certified pediatric dentists who work closely with specialists and healthcare professionals in the area to ensure your child’s oral health remains in optimal condition.

Why Choose Board-Certified Pediatric Dentistry?

Pediatric dentists are the best resource for oral health care needs of infants, children, and those with special needs. A child’s growth and development is much different from an adult, and many of those changes occur between birth and 6 years. Pediatric dentists have 2-3 more years of residency training after dental school. Pediatric dentists also have experience with treating anxious children and those that with special medical needs. Dr. Rozas has structured a team that truly loves treating children and they are experts in making children feel comfortable in the dental office.

Our pediatric dentists are also Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. This certification is an additional process of vigorous testing and certification beyond pediatric dental residency. Board certified pediatric dentists (called Diplomats) must adhere to a strict continuing education program and recertification process.
