As Pediatric and Orthodontic specialists, we know that we need to bring together technologies that protect your child’s health, comforts that help him or her receive anxiety-free dental care, and amenities that make trips to the dentist fun! We also know that the care we provide will set the stage for your child’s dental care well into adulthood – most people who have a fear of the dentist had bad experiences in childhood, and one of our main goals is to make sure your child only has great experiences at Cumberland Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics. And we haven’t forgotten the fun! We offer video games in the waiting room, free wifi, and TVs in every operatory, helping keep your child entertained and distracted during dental visits.
