Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?
Our pediatric dentists specialize in the treatment and prevention of dental disease as well as the overall oral health of children from birth through college. Through extra schooling, training, experience and certification, our pediatric dentists are uniquely qualified to treat the dental needs of infants, children and adolescents and individuals with special health care needs.
What is a Pediatric Dentist?
A Pediatric Dentist is a specialist dedicated to the oral health of children and the monitoring of their facial growth and development. Our office is designed for treating children from infancy through adolescence, as well as the medically and the physically compromised. In our opinion, taking your child to see a pediatric dental specialist is as important as taking them to see a pediatrician.
What is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist?
When a Pediatric Dentist is Board Certified, like Dr. Carter, it means that the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry or ABPD certifies that the dental care being provided is based on standards of excellence that lead to high quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents and patients with special health care needs. Certification by the ABPD provides assurance to the public that a Pediatric Dentist has successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to the delivery of quality patient care.

"We had an AMAZING experience at CoastKids Pediatric Dentistry! It was our daughter’s very first experience with a dentist. They were professional and very patient with her. We had a great visit and they made us feel right at home. We are very happy we found them and look forward to bringing our son there when he’s old enough. Would not go anywhere else!" - JOK, Google

I truly appreciate the patience and understanding that my child received from the staff, they were so friendly and explained everything in detail to me. I wouldn’t choose anywhere else for my children!" - HS, Google
"Dr. Broom, Dr. Carter and all of their staff are absolutely phenomenal! I cannot sing their praises enough. From the time you walk through the door, until the time you exit, you are greeted with smiles and polite words. They are kind and caring, and always go above and beyond to make my child, and me, feel comfortable and unafraid. They are knowledgeable and always offer the best recommendations for whatever our particular situation may be at that time. I recommend this office 1,000%!!!" - CL, Google
