Dentistry Serving Infants, Children,
Adolescents, and Patients with Special Needs since 1995

Thank you for visiting this section of our website! We provide full-service dental care for children and patients with special needs. Our passion is educating children and parents about the best ways to take care of their teeth and gums to ensure optimal dental health and prevent the onset of dental disease. Good dental health begins with proper nutrition, regular brushing and flossing, the right amount of fluoride, and timely clinical exams.

Your Child's First Visit
The ideal time for your child's first visit to our office is around the time of his or her first birthday. The first visit allows us to evaluate the development of your child's mouth, review how to care for these new teeth, and help stop or prevent any harmful habits. Prevention and education in dental matters are two of the best treatments Dr. Carlos Parajon can offer. We believe the best dentistry starts at home!

Our staff is highly experienced and we work with children of all ages. We strive to make every visit to our office healthful, educational and enjoyable for both the child and the parent.

We recognize that many adults have had or still have "dental anxieties" and that sometimes those anxieties may be inadvertently or subconsciously conveyed to your child. To avoid this, we've outlined some pre-planning tips you as the parent can do to help both you and your child have a great experience at our office.

  1. Very young children don't have a realistic sense of time. Wait until the day of the appointment to inform your child. Tell them you're going to visit a tooth doctor who will count their teeth and teach them how to take care of their teeth.
  2. Show them what the office looks like. We have plenty of toys, books and videos in the office – most kids don't want to leave!
  3. Emphasize the adventure of visiting a new place, meeting new people and being the center of attention. Do NOT use words like "drill", "hurt" or "needle" – they are inappropriate and will only create anxiety in your child.
  4. We examine infants and toddlers while sitting on their parent's lap in the dental chair.
  5. If your child has a special toy or a blanket they rely on when they are anxious, please bring it to the appointment. We check teeth of dolls and stuffed animals, too, so if your child has a favorite one, please bring it!

Most of our treatment spaces are in open rooms that make it easy for parents to be present while their child is being examined and to interact with the Dr. Carlos Parajon and staff. We explain everything in an age appropriate manner so your child learns while having fun.
