General Pediatric Dental Treatment
With a variety of treatment options, Meckler Pediatric Dentistry ensures that your children maintain healthy oral hygiene. When it comes to preventative dental care, we highly recommend regular check-ups and routine dental cleanings – as well as other options, such as dental sealants and fluoride treatments.
Pediatric Dental Procedures
During routine teeth cleanings, our pediatric dentist, Dr. Gary, will thoroughly examine your child’s mouth for decay and other potential common dental problems. Our doctors also teach children about important oral hygiene habits – so that they can practice healthy habits at home.
