Merced Pediatric Dentistry - Marie Moran DDS
Both of my children go to Merced pediatric dentistry. I love how all of the office staff are attentive to my children's needs. Dr Hoffman and dr Moran make going to the dentist a fun experience. My son looks forward to his visits and treasures his "no cavity club" shirt. Highly recommend this office.

My 5 year old was terrified to go to the dentist. We travel from Madera to Merced just to see Dr Moran. She makes the experience so much easier. Her staff are wonderful people. I would recommend this office to anyone who has little ones.

Take your kids here! The office is very kid friendly and the staff make the kids feel like they are in charge. Been taking my kids here for over 7 years now and we don't ever skip our appointments!
Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
