Where is Your Office Located?

We have six offices located in Shreveport, Bossier City, Natchitoches, Minden, Alexandria, and Ruston. We are opening a new office in Bossier this year (2024) and look forward to moving into our new space. We are always looking for opportunities to make quality care more accessible to our patients.

Why See a Pediatric Dentist vs. a Regular Dentist?

Pediatric dentists specialize in treating children. Our team has extensive experience working with children’s teeth and gums from infancy to their teenage years. We currently have five board-certified pediatric dental specialists serving our patients’ needs.

How Can I Do My Part to Teach My Child Good Dental Habits?

Proper care of baby teeth is important for the future health and development of your child’s smile. Introduce your baby to oral hygiene by laying them in your lap and wiping a soft damp cloth gently over their gums. By the time your child has teeth erupting, you need to begin helping them brush twice a day with a soft brush and teaching them to floss, once they have teeth next to each other.

Any Other Tips for a Healthy Smile?

When possible, ensure your child has water to drink instead of sugary drinks or juices, and NEVER put your baby to bed with milk or juice. Avoid gummy vitamins, as they are full of sugar, and stick to your baby’s teeth.
