About the Office
Q: Why go to a Pediatric Dentist?
A: A Pediatric Dentist is a specialist dedicated to the oral health of infants, children, adolescents and patients with special health care needs. Pediatric dentists complete two or three years of additional specialized training (after the required four years of dental school), which includes study in child psychology, growth, and development. They are also trained and qualified to care for patients with medical, physical, or mental disabilities. Their specialization allows them to provide treatment for a wide variety of children's dental problems such as tooth decay, malocclusion and crooked teeth, and emergency care. Many children are calm, comfortable, and confident in our Pediatric Dental Office since our office is especially designed for children. Staff members choose to work in our office because they love kids. We make children feel special!
Q: What makes this practice exceptional?
A: Drs. Taylor and Argumosa are Board Certified Pediatric Dentists. A Board Certified Pediatric Dentist, or Diplomat, demonstrates an exceptional knowledge and expertise at a standard not possessed by other dentists. In addition to two thriving practices, Drs. Taylor and Argumosa are Clinical Faculty at the University of Florida, Pediatric Dentistry Residency in Naples, FL. A commitment to education and the future of this great profession allows them to stay informed of the most recent advances in Pediatric Dentistry. Every child deserves a healthy mouth that they can be proud of! Our offices welcome children and adolescents to include those with special healthcare needs. Patients and their families are greeted with smiling faces and kind hearts. We combine experience and training with patience and enthusiasm to provide a family-centered approach to exceptional care in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere that both children and parents enjoy. In addition to being a paperless office and utilizing digital x-ray systems, we offer a broad scope of services which include strong focus on prevention, restorative dentistry, in-office sedation alternatives (Nitrous, Oral and I.V.), hospital dentistry, management of dental trauma, interceptive orthodontics, sports dentistry and tooth whitening.
Q: Do you allow parents to come back with their children?
A: Parents are welcome to accompany their child into the treatment area during all appointments, except for IV sedation and general anesthesia. This will give you the opportunity to see our staff in action. Over time, we hope to bring your child back by him/herself to better establish trust and independence. Finally, if you expect your child to do well and enjoy their visit to our office, chances are they will do just that!
Q: What types of payment does your office accept?
A: We accept cash, checks, credit cards (MasterCard, Visa and Discover) and CareCredit (for those who qualify) as payment. In addition, we also accept dental insurance as payment and will assist in the preparation and filing of your claim.
