Join the cavity free generation
For a pediatric dentist, every day and each patient is different, bringing new joys and challenges. My greatest reward comes from reassuring a previously frightened and crying child, along with their nervous parent, and seeing them leave with happy smiles.
I’m passionate about helping children grow up without dental disease or fear of seeing the dentist. Being part of creating a cavity-free generation is truly amazing.
I’m people-oriented and enjoy getting to know each patient on a personal level. I love hearing about their day, adventures, and dreams. It’s a pleasure to watch these children grow, excel, and become amazing adults. I enjoy graduating them to adult dentists, with healthy smiles and the knowledge needed to keep them in great shape for years to come. — Dr. Henry Maccaro
