What is Pediatric Dentistry?
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.

Bright Young Smiles Reviews
My son has been a patient for 10 years! We love it! The staff is friendly, the office is warm and inviting, and service is always prompt!
Great first experience with my 3 year old. She was cranky going in so I expected a disaster... they knew what to do to get her intrigued and cooperative.
We love Bright Young Smiles! Everyone is so friendly and the kids actually get excited to go to the dentist. It’s always easy to get an appointment and it is very helpful that you can get in as early as 7:20am.
I have been going to Dr Young and Bright young smiles since I was a kid. They genuinely care about you. Thanks for caring guys!!🙂 Jonathan M
