From the moment our practice opened its doors, the team here at Cumberland Dental Specialists understood how important it is for children to feel that they are in a safe and friendly environment, surrounded by people who genuinely have their best interests at heart. Dental treatment can create feelings of anxiety and fear among children and adults alike, and our skilled, friendly professionals make it a high priority to deliver effective care while also providing the most comfortable treatment experience possible. Our pediatric dentists and board-certified orthodontist also believe in the importance of patient education and giving your children the guidance they need to ensure they have healthy teeth and gums all the way into adulthood.
