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:
- Dental care at home – including diet
- A limited exam to look at your child’s development and soft tissues (No radiographs are taken)
- Introduce the child to the dental office early to avoid being fearful of the dentist
- 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
