We take your child’s oral health seriously—that’s why Dr. Baxter is committed to using the best dental techniques and equipment possible. He realizes that your child’s early dental experiences are pivotal to the health of his or her teeth, gums, and facial development. To make sure your child receives an exceptional dental visit that is not only gentle and effective, but also educational and fun, Dr. Baxter and our friendly team talk to you and your child in order to learn about his or her unique personality. This helps us learn about past dental visits, concerns, and any discomfort they may have been experiencing prior to their visit. We do everything we can to make your child feel comfortable in our care.

Our Commitment to You & Your Child
Studies show that digital X-rays emit up to 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays, and because these X-rays are digital, they do not require any lengthy chemical processing. Your child’s X-ray scans are available on our computer screen within seconds so that we can discuss your child’s oral health and treatment plan the same day you come in. Another great benefit of digital X-rays is that if you ever need to take your child to another specialist, Dr. Baxter can email your scans to their office for your convenience and there’s no unnecessary paper waste.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, bisphenol A (BPA) has been present in many consumer plastic products and food packaging since the 1960s. Some studies suggest that BPA has adverse health effects. We are committed to using BPA-free dental materials to ensure the safety of your child’s oral and overall health.
Silver (amalgam) fillings are made of mercury and can be a source of direct mercury exposure for your little ones. Instead of silver fillings, we treat your child with composite (tooth-colored) fillings that are durable, natural-looking, and safe.
Many people suffer from an allergy to latex. In order to keep all of our patients safe, we use synthetic substitutes. We take your child’s health seriously.
Formocresol is a toxic substance used by many dentists for baby root canals (pulpotomies). We use different materials that are non-toxic and safe for children.
We exceed the ADA and OSHA standards for a clean and safe dental practice by using non-toxic cleaning products to disinfect and sterilize our treatment rooms and dental equipment.
We invest in state-of-the-art dental equipment that helps us catch problems like tooth decay and improper tooth eruption and allows us to treat your child’s teeth in the best way possible. This technology can save you time and money and save your child from more extensive dental treatments in the future.
We use state-of-the-art digital X-ray sensors and a digital panoramic X-ray machine so your child receives the lowest dose possible. We also use the newest handheld NOMAD X-ray unit and so your child will be able to take X-rays easier.
With our intraoral camera, we can take pictures of all your child’s teeth and any problem areas. We can then put the images up on our computer screen so that we can walk you and your child through the exam. This diagnostic and teaching tool helps us explain your child’s unique oral health and treatment options. Now you can see what we see when are are examining the mouth.
With our state-of-the-art LightScalpel CO2 Laser, we can release tongue-ties and lip-ties with minimal discomfort and improved healing, removing pieces of gum tissue without bleeding or stitches, and even perform baby tooth root canals.
Isolite is a unique mouthpiece that makes your child’s time in the dental chair more comfortable. This mouthpiece isolates sections of the mouth, allowing us to do better dentistry while comfortably protecting the gums, cheeks, and tongue. Now your child can relax, rest his or her mouth, and enjoy their time at the dentist.
