At Desert Kids Dentistry a fun positive trip to the dentist is our number one goal. As a pediatric dentist we go through extensive training to meet the dental needs of children from infancy through adolescence. Every detail of the office was designed with children in mind. We want their visits to be fun, comfortable and exciting, so that they look forward to coming back. A positive dental experience creates positive oral health habits. The focus of Desert Kids Dentistry is prevention, but in the event that treatment is needed, we can ensure that your child will receive the highest standard of care. Please explore the website, and feel free to call the office with any additional questions. We look forward to seeing you soon at Desert Kids Dentistry.

Our mission is to provide high quality dental care in a fun and inviting environment. We want children to enjoy their dental visits and look to forward to their upcoming dental appointments.  We serve the Anthem, New River, Norterra and the surrounding areas.


Preventive care is the main focus at Desert Kids Dentistry.  During your visit we will work with each individual child on how to improve oral hygiene and discuss strategies to prevent decay.  We will also offer nutritional guidance to help prevent cavities

X-rays are a vital part of the dental exam.  X-rays are needed to diagnose decay in between teeth and diagnose any unusual pathology.  They are also used to determine whether growth and development is progressing normally.

There are a number of ways to stop the spread of decay and restore teeth.  We will discuss these options with you which may include composite fillings, crowns, pulpotomies (baby teeth root canals), extractions, and space maintainers.  SDF is an alternative that we can discuss as well.


Depending on the level of anxiety for your child we have a wide range of treatment modalities.  We offer Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas), Oral Conscious Sedation, and general anesthesia.  We will discuss the options that may be best for your child
