Our Staff

We know that our office is only as effective and welcoming as the people who work in it, which is why we take pride in our competent, caring staff members! As a team, we are especially interested in making all our pediatric patients feel right at home. We are eager to welcome you into our family here at Children's Dentistry of DuPont!

We will put your child’s needs first to achieve efficient, comprehensive treatment in a supportive, nurturing environment. We promise to speak candidly with you about possible treatments as well as any risks and associated costs of treatment, and how treatment can address your child’s specific needs.

Our staff is highly skilled, uniquely trained and aims to provide energetic and fun-loving service to each child! Our team members have specialized training, multiple certifications and years of experience treating kids with the highest level of care. We strive to stay abreast of the very latest in technology and advancements by regularly attending continuing education courses and seminars taught on CPR/BLS, HIPAA compliance, annual Bloodborne Pathogens certification and WISHA compliance.
