This office is so homey and such friendly staff/dentists! The former dentist that people were having issues with is no longer employed there. I've never had an issue and everyone is very caring and willing to do anything to make you feel comfortable.

Ronald Tosto is cordial until you have an issue or problem with the work done. If you're not happy with your work, Dr. Tosto immediately becomes defensive and hostile. He became increasingly more aggressive as I was explaining my issues with the work done. I was in pain and he implied I was lying, I'm not sure how his other patients feel but I don't particularly enjoy a trip to the dentist to take up my free time. My second opinion clearly saw I was in pain and knew why. It seems his patients from MI where he used to practice feel the same about him and his knowledge. He isn't very knowledgable and spends little time with his patients. He doesn't explain things well and gave me poor advice about a treatment plan that cost thousands of dollars, according to my multiple second opinion visits. If your having minor work done or a cleaning then I would recommend going here as the staff is very welcoming. If you need quality extensive work done, I'd go somewhere else so you don't end up having to pay for his work to be redone.

Well if you're the kind of person who doesn't question anything or want to know what you're being charged for then this is the place for you. When I ask a question regarding my charges they were very rude and called me a "problem" when they went to the back to get the dentist. The dentist wasn't very nice either since she came at me and described my treatment as being what it is and that is final with a very bad attitude. Prior to this I had denied getting more x-rays done (as I had done them before so they should have them on file) and getting an extensive cleaning... when I did so she dramatized everything and told me my gums would make my teeth fall out instead of respecting my decision as a customer. Maybe it's because I'm Hispanic or maybe it is that these women were all in a bad mood today but I will not be going back abs I will warn anyone I know who is looking for a dentist to avoid these ill educated establishment.

Great chairside manner. She spends time with her patients and seems to really enjoy what she does. I would recommend Dr. Emily to anyone.
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.
