At Camelback Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we strive to create a comfortable and welcoming treatment environment for our patients. From the moment they enter the waiting room to any follow-up appointments they might need, our team is here to help ease them into the treatment process. When providing pediatric dental care and orthodontics to our patients, we help establish a positive rapport with the idea of receiving regular dental checkups. This way, children grow up with a positive view of taking care of their oral health.
Through orthodontic care, we can help patients maintain their oral health and the proper alignment of their teeth. We can guide patients throughout their development and help them maintain proper oral hygiene at home to decrease the chance of tooth decay or gum disease. We also provide options for patients who have anxiety about visiting the dentist or have difficulty sitting still for a certain amount of time in a dental chair.
If you want to schedule an appointment or learn more about our services, call us at 602-362-7072 today.
