Board certified pediatric dentists are committed to equipping your child with excellent oral habits while providing tailored care so their smile can grow bright and strong.
While all dentists must achieve a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree, board certified pediatric dentists pursue additional years of education through a postgraduate pediatric residency program. This requires an annual renewal by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry to ensure Dr. Austin and Dr. Gupta’s care best serves the needs of your child.
As board certified pediatric dentists, you can trust that Dr. Austin and Dr. Gupta provide compassionate expertise to nurture your child’s developing smile.
When your child stops by our office at a young age, they’ll quickly learn that visiting their trusted smile friends can be easy and fun! The sooner your child becomes acclimated with “going to the dentist,” the more likely they’ll develop positive associations with oral health habits and dental visits.
Early visits allow your child time to get to know our caring team. With each appointment, your kiddo will discover that dental visits are nothing to worry about and that their smile is in great hands.
Getting to know your child’s unique oral health needs at an early age allows us to craft the best treatment plan possible for a lifetime of thriving smiles.
By visiting Dr. Austin and Dr. Gupta every six months, our team will be able to catch issues before they begin forming in the first place.
A dental home is a practice where your child receives ongoing care from the same team as they grow from tots to teens. By making Petaluma Kids Dental Care your child’s dental home, they can always look forward to gentle, upbeat care that’s truly tailored to their unique needs and personality. Here are a few benefits of a dental home:
I just brought my 13-month-old in for his first visit to the dentist and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Dr. Nunez is so friendly and helped to make my son comfortable with the whole visit. All of the staff were very nice and welcoming as well. I would highly recommend this office!!
Such a great experience here with my 1 & 3 year olds! We were able to have both kids seen at the same time, which was super convenient and helped my youngest feel more comfortable for his first dentist appointment. Nothing but smiles and giggles from the moment we saw the hippo and zebra on the front doors. We were greeted promptly and warmly by the front desk staff, the hygienists were kind and sweet with the kids, the dentist was super patient and gentle. Can’t say enough good things! So glad we found a great dentist for our kiddos.
Today was our first visit and it was GREAT! The front office is a huge open space, very inviting and the ladies at the front desk were extremely friendly and helpful. My son is 6, this was his second dentist visit, first time at this office. Janet was our RDA and she is amazing! She was SO great with my son, walked him through everything she was doing, made me feel comfortable since he was at ease. Dr. Nunez did my son’s exam today and he was great, explained everything to both my son and myself, listened to my concerns, and even managed to pull out a very loose tooth that has been plaguing my son for MONTHS. We both couldn’t have been happier with this experience, we look forward to seeing everyone again in 6 months! VERY highly recommend this office!
