Family Dentistry

North Bridge Dental desires to be a practice for the whole family – including children!

While Dr. Collins is not a pediatric specialist, he made it a priority to be proficient in caring for the needs of children – as well as special needs patients.  During his time at the University of Maryland Dental School, he was a pediatric clerk.  That allowed him to get more time with caring for children alongside their parents.  Also, during his externship, he cared for children and special needs patients in a hospital setting outside Baltimore city.

We encourage parents to bring their children in by their first birthday or first tooth.  This gives us a chance to sit down with the parents focus on four things:

  1. Dental care at home – including diet
  2. A limited exam to look at your child’s development and soft tissues (No radiographs are taken)
  3. Introduce the child to the dental office early to avoid being fearful of the dentist
  4. Answer any questions you may have

Being a parent is not easy.  What North Bridge Dental’s goal for you is to provide peace of mind in regard to your child’s teeth
