Drs. Jason T. Decker, Nancy A. Cavotta, Jennifer L. Charlesworth, Kristina Gallo and Kate Carroll at CAPITAL DISTRICT PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY have made it their careers to help kids of all ages develop a lifelong positive attitude toward dentistry. The doctors explain that today’s techniques are virtually painless, and when children begin their lives with happy, relaxed experiences in the dental chair, you’re going to see far fewer adults with ”drill phobia”.

Another aspect of pediatric dentistry that’s changed in recent years is the age at which kids first visit the dentist. All five doctors are Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. They recommend that parents bring their baby in between six months and one year of age, to answer any questions they may have and to learn how to take care of those important first teeth. They can identify any problem areas early and develop a plan of check-ups that suits your child’s needs. The practice provides the latest in laser dentistry and has a special interest in Special Needs Children.
