Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Child Jr "Dr. Child's personal mantra is: "If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over again". With this in mind, Dr. Child is very detailed, takes time to explain ALL of your options, including the benefits and limitations/risks of each option, then provides you with his professional opinion on what treatment option would be best, given your specific circumstance, time restraints, and financial ability. Dr. Child takes great joy and happiness in treating all your oral health care with the best products, materials, and proven techniques."
