​At Empire Pediatric Dentistry, we provide personal, friendly dental care in a fun and caring environment for children of all ages. All of our doctors have speciality training in Pediatric Dentistry, with the expertise to help make going to the dentist a positive experience for all.

​​“As a mom, I know how important it is to find the right health care providers for your children.  And as a pediatric dentist, I realize the responsibility I have when a parent trusts me to take care of their child – this is very important to me. So I make sure every family that comes here is welcomed like you’re part of our family – with compassion, sensitivity and respect."
