The name Parachute conjures up the school and playground excitement of running under a giant colorful parachute. It is also a symbol of floating gently to safety on solid ground.
We want to be a happy and safe place for your kids!
We're glad you're here
At Parachute Pediatric Dentistry, we offer high quality pediatric dentistry to children of all ages. Each child is unique, so we don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to the visit—instead we’ll let the child set the pace. We strive to make every visit positive, fun, and filled with educational experiences that will build a strong foundation for a lifetime of good oral health.
We specialize in pediatric dentistry
We're pediatric dentists, which means we underwent specialty training in caring for kids and teens. At our practice, we take a conservative approach to dentistry with a focus on preventative care. Our modern approach to pediatric dentistry looks at the whole child—not just their teeth. Health, diet, behavior, and environment all play important roles.
We believe in always approaching children with a positive attitude and providing care for them with compassion and respect. We are a patient-centered practice and we want every child and caregiver to feel listened to, cared for, respected, and informed.
The parachute motto—to create healthy smiles—is achieved by making the experience easy on patients and caregivers. That’s what we’re all about.
Why a Pediatric Dentist?
Pediatric dentists (or pedodontists) are qualified to meet the dental needs of infants, toddlers, school‐age children, and adolescents. Pediatric dentists are required to undertake an additional two or three years of child‐specific training after fulfilling dental school requirements.
In addition to dental training, pediatric dentists specifically study child psychology. This enables them to communicate with children in an effective, gentle, and non‐threatening manner. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children see a pediatric dentist before the age of one (or approximately six months after the emergence of the first primary tooth). Though this might seem early, biannual preventative dental appointments are imperative for excellent oral health.
