YOUR CHILD’S HOME
FOR A HEALTHY SMILE
At Elizabethtown Dentistry for Children, we know that a lifetime of healthy smiles begins with a baby’s first tooth. Our kid-friendly practice is built on a love for children and a desire for them to be comfortable with dentistry. It is our goal for our patients to receive the highest quality of care, in a positive environment, and to provide dental education for the entire family! We’re here to create healthy and beautiful smiles for all.

Why Pediatric Dentistry?
All of our doctors completed several years of additional training, beyond dental school, to specialize in providing dental care that’s specific to children. All of our kid-centered services are provided in a calm, caring environment in order to provide you and your child with a positive experience. In our opinion, taking your child to see a pediatric dental specialist is as important as taking them to see a pediatrician.
WHAT AGE SHOULD MY CHILD SEE A PEDIATRIC DENTIST?
The AAPD recommends that your child should be seen no later than 6 months after their first tooth erupts from the gum. Little teeth need as much attention as “big teeth” to prevent decay and encourage life-long healthy habits.
DOES PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY COST MORE?
Not necessarily! Every parent wants the best for their children, and we do too! Our practice is happy to work with you to create a dental hygiene plan for your child that will suit you and your family’s financial needs. As an added courtesy, we will file dental insurance for our patients. Although we do not control how your insurance handles its claims nor what benefits they provide, we are happy to save you the step of having to file yourself!
DO I STAY WITH MY CHILD DURING THE VISIT?
We invite you to stay with your child during the initial appointment. Beyond that, we suggest you allow our caring staff to guide your child through the dental experience. Our purpose is to gain your child’s confidence and overcome any apprehension. However, if you’d prefer to join the appointments, you are welcome to do so!
“They made my trip as easy as possible and really explained everything so that I knew exactly what I needed The people were great and so welcoming. I couldn’t be happier with the experience!.”
“Dr. Sheroan is the best dentist. She is so great with my children and so is her staff. She knows how to keep a child calm. Have never had any issues with any of my children crying or scared of the dentist. Have been seeing her since my oldest was 18mo. He is now 17. Would definitely recommend.”
“Dr. Abang & the staff are great. Never have to wait long, everyone is friendly and pleasant. My grandson always receives excellent care. Dr. Abang is very personable and explains his care plan so he clearly understands.”
“My son loved Dr. Murphy and he was soo good with him. He and his staff are phenomenal! We’ll be bringing all of our boys there from now on.”
