Meet Our Dentists and Orthodontists
Welcome to Main Street Children's Dentistry and Orthodontics of Havre de Grace
If you’re looking for a compassionate pediatric dentist to care for your child, you’ve come to the right place. Our friendly team at Main Street Children's Dentistry and Orthodontics of Havre de Grace makes going to the dentist fun for your child and convenient for you.
Our pediatric dentist specializes in taking care of children from infancy through college. From the time that first baby tooth appears, our team is here to help. Pediatric dentists are specialists who finish dental school and then complete an additional two years of education and training in identifying and treating the oral health needs of children – from cavity prevention to repairing chipped teeth to eliminating toothaches. Does your child play sports? We also create sports mouth guards designed to protect their teeth and cushion their jaw, which can help reduce concussions.
Friendly, Fun & Convenient Children’s Dental Care
Our children’s dental office draws families from Havre de Grace as well as other cities and towns in Hartford County and Cecil Country. We’re conveniently located in the Swan Creek Village Shopping Center on Route 40, across from a BB&T Bank and the Bill Bateman Restaurant. We’re easy to see from the road; just look for the big Main Street sign. There’s plenty of free parking.
We’re open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Fridays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.; if you have a dental emergency on one of the days that we’re closed, we can refer you to one of our other nearby Main Street Children's Dentistry & Orthodontics offices. We work with most dental insurance companies and will be happy to work with you to ensure the cost of your child’s dental care fits into your family budget.
Our goal is to be known as the best pediatric dentist in Havre de Grace. We truly do make going to the dentist fun. Parents can go into the treatment room with their child and hear for themselves how we explain in simple, easy-to-understand terms what will happen during the visit. We let the children know they have nothing to worry about and that it won’t hurt; we’ve worked with children for a long time and know how to get them to laugh and relax during their visit. And at the end of their visit, children get to pick a prize.
Our experienced pediatric dentist also helps children with special needs. If you need a dentist for your child with Autism, Down syndrome, a behavioral disorder, or anything else, please let our team know when you make your appointment. We’d be happy to talk to you to see how we can help your child have a healthy smile.
Orthodontic Care in Havre De Grace
We also have an experienced orthodontist on our team. Did you know that the American Association of Orthodontists recommends children have their first evaluation by an orthodontist by age 7? The reason is simple: an orthodontist can spot any problems with jaw growth or how the new teeth are coming in. Early treatment, which is also called Phase I Orthodontic Treatment, can help reduce the amount of time a child may need braces later.
Our orthodontist is skilled at traditional braces, clear braces, and Invisalign® clear aligners. Braces have come a long way in the past few decades. Now children think it’s cool to personalize their braces with colored bands that suit their personality or match their school colors. For many pre-teens and teenagers, getting braces is a rite of passage. It is so rewarding to see our young patients go from feeling self-conscious to self-confident as their smiles become straight and beautiful. And a straight smile is healthier too because it’s easier to brush, floss and keep those teeth cavity-free.
Call our orthodontist in Havre de Grace today to schedule a complimentary braces consultation. You’ll leave your appointment knowing how braces could help your child, how long treatment will take, and how you can fit the cost of braces into your family budget with easy monthly payments.
