A Love for Healthy, Beautiful Smiles
I spent three years practicing general dentistry before pursuing my passion for working with pediatric patients and those with special needs. Being a pediatric dentist means spending my days surrounded by kids: their energy, excitement, stories, and laughter make my life full.
It’s a wonderful experience to introduce a child to painless dental care. Our team members are patient, warm, and kind. We take our time to talk with our patients about what’s going to happen during their visit. We explain everything in terms they can understand, and reassure them that everything will be okay. It’s important kids learn that a visit to the dentist is something to look forward to!
I truly love seeing the smiles on children’s faces. It’s fulfilling to watch them grow into wonderful young adults with beautiful smiles and a desire to care for their oral health. — Dr. Daniel Holsinger
