Child smiling at Terrific Smiles Pediatric Dentistry

Your Child’s First dental Visit

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child see the dentist by their first birthday to ensure things are progressing well. Most oral diseases are preventable. We would love to work with you to provide a healthy smile for your child.

Excellent Education

Dr. Terri Ambrose and her staff provide oral hygiene instructions and dietary counseling tailored to your family’s needs. We understand each family is unique and respect your autonomy. We use technology like digital X-rays and intraoral cameras to help our families visualize and understand what is happening in the oral cavity.

Parent Partnership

Your child won’t be the only one who loves it here. We welcome parents into the treatment room and equip you and your child with educational tools to help develop the healthy hygiene habits that will lead to a lifetime of healthy smiles.
