Dentistry with your Child’s Needs in Mind
Your child’s comfort and safety are our top priorities; Dr. Lopez’s dental office offers digital dental x-rays and pediatric sedation dentistry. With digital x-rays, children don’t have to struggle with large bitewings that must be placed in their mouths in order for the x-ray images to be taken. Digital x-rays are quick, reduce exposure to radiation, and provide clearer pictures of the state of your child’s oral health. Our sedation dentistry services are ideal for special needs patients, antsy children, or others who could benefit from extra relaxation during treatment.
