  • Root Canal Treatment

    Every tooth has two sections: a crown, the visible part of the tooth above the gum line, and one or more roots, which anchor the teeth within the jaw. Each tooth has three basic layers: an outer layer of hard enamel (which protects the crown) or cementum (which covers the root), a middle layer of softer ...

  • Fillings

    The bacteria in plaque produce acids that erode tooth enamel, eventually creating a hole, or cavity, in the tooth surface. Left untreated, this decay can spread to the interior of the tooth, and might lead to the need for a crown, a root canal, or even extraction. When caught early, your dentist can ...

What Our Patients Say About Us

    We have been coming here since they first opened their doors and couldn’t be happier. Everyone is absolutely wonderful with scared children and we’ve never needed to have any of the work they’ve done corrected or fixed. Plus the massage chairs, while we wait, are nice.

    Maria L.

    My husband and I have twin daughters and are so thankful to have a pediatric dentist who genuinely cares about our children and their individual dental goals. Dr. D and his staff have made going to the dentist and taking care of your teeth fun! I would give 5280 Pediatric Dentistry 10 stars if I could. It is such a relief to have Dr. D in our lives!

    It was our 1 and 3 year olds first time to the dentist, and I was very surprised at how well they did from the X-rays (for the 3 year old), brushing, flossing and cleaning. I owe it all to the amazing staff and doctors. They made them feel comfortable and knew how to handle if they started becoming too ancy or upset. It was a much better experience than I had anticipated!

    Tara W.

    Took our 3 year old in for his first trip to the dentist today and I couldn't be happier with the with the staff. It was refreshing how much they love working with children.

    Zeb L.

    Dr. Derek made sure my child's teeth were in tip top shape and not a single tear was shed. My wife and I still get asked, "when will we see Dr. Derek again?" We reply, "only every six months if you keep up with your brushing, bud. And lay off the fruit snacks."
