Last July,
Rebecca Gold’s parents, Karen and Adam, had just dropped her off at sleepaway
camp in Pennsylvania. They hadn’t
even completed the drive back to Connecticut when they received a frightening
call: Their 12-year-old daughter had collapsed to the floor, vomiting and
unable to move her limbs. She was now at a nearby

Winning Smiles Pediatric Dental Care

We’ve worked hard to create a space that’s welcoming, relaxing, and most of all, fun, for you and your child.  In fact, we like to think of it more as a dental “home” than a dental “office.”  The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry defines a dental home as an “ongoing relationship between the dentist and the patient, inclusive of all aspects of oral health care delivered in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated, and family-centered way.”  From the caring and knowledgeable dentist and staff, to the child, parent and eco-friendly equipment and furnishings, we’ve done our best to make you feel like family in a place that will become your child’s dental home for years to come.  Our mission is to provide the kids of Pittsburgh with high quality dental education and treatment needed to grow into happy, healthy adults. 

Take a look around.  Learn more about our unique ability to

What is a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric dentists are dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. They have the experience and qualifications to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood.

Children begin to get their baby teeth during the first 6 months of life. By age 6 or 7 years, they start to lose their first set of teeth, which eventually are replaced by secondary, permanent teeth. Without proper dental care, children face possible oral decay and disease that can cause a lifetime of pain and complications. Today, early childhood dental caries—an infectious disease—is 5 times more common in children than asthma and 7 times more common than hay fever.

What Kind of Training Do Pediatric Dentists Have?

Pediatric dentists have completed at least:

  • Four years of dental school
  • Two additional years of residency training in dentistry for infants, children, teens, and children

Pediatric Dentist in Kissimmee Florida

Our practice offers complete dental care for children in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. We treat children of all ages; however, we do not force any child to do anything they refuse. We postpone of necessary, procedures until that child is more comfortable to allow us the opportunity to treat them. That is why Dr. Hernandez believes in the age one Dental home. The majority of early caries does not require anesthetic.

We work on “kids time”, which means that we will not rush, but allow as much time as necessary for the child to be comfortable.
