About Us

Doby’s Bridge Pediatric Dentistry helps children with their oral health care needs from infancy through the teenage years. Our practice is focused on meeting the needs of all children, including those with special needs. We know that selecting a healthcare provider for your child is a big decision, and we feel honored to be considered by you.

Our goal is to provide children with healthy, attractive smiles that will last the rest of their lives. We do this in an environment that is safe, inviting, and gets kids excited about their visits to the office. We want every experience to be positive, educational, and fun.

At Doby’s Bridge Pediatric Dentistry, we approach care as a team effort. Parents, caregiver, and our patients are all core members of our team. We want everyone to take an active role in each visit, and for you and our patient to be empowered to make the right choices at home. As the experts, we will ensure you have all the information you need to maintain oral health and make informed treatment decisions.

Why Should Your Child See a Pediatric Dentist?

Children aren’t miniature adults—their medical and emotional needs are distinct. Pediatric dentists are professionals with two to three years of additional training after dental school, helping them develop skills and approaches that are tailored to young patients. Our practice can help infants, children, preteens, and teens in guiding their dental growth and development, avoiding future problems, and creating a base for lifelong dental health

At What Age Should My Child First Visit the Dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children first see the dentist within the first six months after getting their first tooth or on their first birthday—whichever happens soonest. However, if you miss this deadline, don’t assume it is too late; just schedule your appointment as soon as you can.

Our calling is to ensure your child has excellent oral health supported by education, prevention, positive motivation, and tailored treatment.
