What Sets Us Apart

Our Mission

Eastern Shore Pediatric Dentistry Banner.

Our mission is to provide compassionate and accessible dental care while encouraging children to have positive lifelong attitudes toward dental care. We believe this starts by educating families on proper oral hygiene techniques to prevent dental cavities, while also treating children in non-traumatic ways during their dental appointments. Each patient of our practice receives unique treatment that reflects what fits their needs best, and we do our best to provide clear communication with the entire family. Even when treatment is difficult, we take pride in making the overall outcome positive.

Dr. Matt is our owner and pediatric dentist and enjoys helping children overcome challenges and develop confidence. As a parent, you can expect to see him at each dental appointment and to always have easy access to him if you have any questions. Equally important to the great dental service we provide, we offer families a fun and engaging place that they can look forward to visiting.

The Specialist Advantage

Is a pediatric dentist different than a general dentist? 

Yes. Pediatric dentistry is a nationally recognized dental specialty. A pediatric dentist completes four years of undergraduate, four years of dental school, and an additional two years of advanced clinical training and education that qualifies them to practice pediatric dentistry. Pediatric dentists are the experts on the growth and development of the mouth and jaw, the psychology and behavior management of children and adolescents, and restorative and preventative children’s dentistry.

Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry

What is a board certified pediatric dentist?

A board certification is a mark of distinction that indicates the education of a doctor is beyond the minimal standards and competency of a chosen specialty.  To become board certified, a graduated pediatric dentist must pass a series of written and verbal exams to demonstrate advanced specialty knowledge including the diagnosis, treatment planning, and complications involved in advanced pediatric cases.
