AboutNett Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics

At Nett Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we strive to help patients receive the professional dental and orthodontic treatment they need to maintain a healthy smile. With pediatric dentistry, we can help ensure children take proper care of their teeth as they develop. With early orthodontic treatment, we can help to prepare the mouth for the permanent adult teeth. Along with treating the overall health of the teeth, our treatment can help patients keep the appearance of straight teeth.

We will help parents learn the tips and tricks to getting their children to practice proper oral health techniques at home. With regular dental checkups, we can catch the early warning signs of an infection or other issue and prevent it from getting worse. We also act as an emergency dentist for kids and help treat sudden dental issues.
