Our staff is highly trained to ensure your child has a safe, comfortable, and fun experience at Dino Dental! Dr. James and Dr. Lauren believe in the importance of parental involvement during the appointment, and parents are encouraged to accompany their children during their visit. We believe early detection of problems and prevention are key to maintaining a healthy smile. Our monthly “No Cavity Club” drawings reward cavity-free patients with exciting prizes!
