Why See a
Pediatric Dentist?

Young smiles have unique needs, and that’s where we come in!

Pediatric dentistry is a branch of dentistry focused on caring for young, developing smiles and special needs patients.

Kids of all ages, including those who are medically compromised, have unique needs as they learn, grow, and care for their smiles. That’s why we offer extra kindness, patience, and understanding as we guide your child through each stage of childhood into adulthood.

Our Melissa, TX dentist is well-trained in caring for children’s smiles, but he also genuinely loves what he does.

  • In addition to his general dentistry studies, Dr. Heath completed extra years of education and training to become a pediatric dentist.
  • He’s created an office specifically for kids and special needs patients to help them feel calm, relaxed, and excited about their dental care.
  • Board eligible, Dr. Heath is dedicated to ongoing education and delivering the highest quality standards in dental care.
  • Dr. Heath keeps up with the latest in dental technology and is always looking for ways to make your child’s treatment more comfortable. He uses Biolase to reduce the need for a drill or sedation.

‘‘Dr. Heath is a profoundly talented pediatric dentist! I’ve always been impressed with how well he answers my questions about my daughters’ teeth and oral care. His exams are always thorough, he is friendly and professional, and his interactions with my children (who were once terrified at the idea of going to the dentist) have been fun, engaging, and comfortable! 10/10. Make him a part of your family’s life!’’
