At Bright Young Smiles, we believe early positive dental experiences set the stage for a lifetime of oral health and wellness. Our primary goal is to make your children's visit fun, enjoyable, and something they will look forward to in the future. This process begins from their very first visit and leads to the difference between healthy teeth in adulthood versus chronic dental problems in the future.

At our child-friendly facility, our board-certified pediatric dentists and highly trained dental team obtain the cooperation of our pediatric patients using warmth, friendliness, and humor among other specialized behavior management techniques. Our approach is never forced which facilitates an anxiety-free visit for the entire family. We welcome parents to accompany their child in our treatment rooms, and we pride ourselves in our ability to answer your questions and explain the details of treatment in an honest and easy-to-understand manner. We are known in the community for our conservative treatment approach, and we will never recommend procedures that aren’t warranted.

At Bright Young Smiles, our philosophy is based on prevention, with the goal of evaluating and preserving the health of your child’s teeth before any problems begin! Starting as early as one year of age, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that children visit the pediatric dentist for “wellness” checkups and continue to visit the dentist every six months through adulthood.

At our office, your family will be well-informed and able to make confident decisions regarding your child’s dental care and oral health.

Prevention is the best medicine. We provide the following during your child's dental exams:

  • Comprehensive dental exams for early decay
  • Monitor orthodontic concerns
  • Track jaw and tooth development
  • Preventative fluoride treatments
  • Professional cleanings
  • Demonstration of good brushing and flossing techniques
  • Dietary counseling

We offer an extensive variety of services for children. These include:

  • Strategies for thumb sucking and pacifier cessation
  • Tooth-colored pediatric fillings (BPA-free)
  • Extractions
  • Dental Sealants
  • Early phase orthodontic treatment (space maintainers & palatal expanders)
  • Pediatric cleanings
  • Digital x-rays
  • Radiation-free imaging (CariVu Visualization System)
  • Nitrous oxide sedation (laughing gas)
  • Intraoral photography

A big shout out to the staff at bright young smiles. I woke up in pain and I had not been to their office in 7 years, but they got me in same day. Dr. Gaffney was amazing. He referred me to the best Endodontics office in Boca. I will always use Bright Young Smile for the rest of my life. Thank you

Going to the dentist has been something I try to put off in the past. However, whenever I come to Bright Young Smiles I can stay there for hours— literally! Dr. Catherine Young and her assistant Rose spent several hours on my latest dental work, filling in cavities and adding bonding. I couldn’t be happier with the results, I feel so much better about my smile now! They made the whole experience extremely comfortable for me, offering a blanket and letting me catch up on my latest Netflix show. They utilize the latest tech gadgets on the market for dentistry so you don’t feel like all these crazy tools are in your mouth. Which in my opinion usually tends to feel uncomfortable hence why I’ve avoided the dentist in the past. Dr. Catherine Young also focuses on cosmetic dentistry and was able to help correct the balance of my smile via lip fillers. She has an artistic eye and takes the time to really focus and perfect where she is injecting in order to make your smile perfectly balanced. I’ve had filler in the past and usually it’s a quick appointment where I felt that they didn’t take the time to consider the structure of my face. Dr. Young was the complete opposite and was so gentle whenever she would inject. Would highly recommend this procedure to be done if you want the perfect smile!

When my friend recommended Bright Young Smiles I never in a million years expected to have the experience My son and I had with them. Dr. Catherine Young has not only helped me with my TMJ problems but I swear to you she has a halo on her head. She is not just really good at what she does but she is so compassionate and kind and held my hand while I was going through a difficult time. Its not hard to see why everyone in her staff is happy in the office. Everyone is very friendly and want to make you feel very comfortable while you’re there. My whole family will start going there now. :)
