Our in-house pediatric dentist, Dr. Jim Mason, is a board-certified pediatric dental specialist who served his country as an Air Force Officer and, upon receiving his Advanced Education in General Dentistry, specialized in treating children of military families.

What Is a Pediatric Dentist?
Pediatric dentistry is more than fixing cavities – it’s also about preventing them. Children have different dental needs and orthodontic issues than adults, which may include fluoride applications, dental sealants, orthodontics, and oral hygiene. Dr. Mason’s mission is to educate parents and patients and provide the necessary tools to live a cavity-free life.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry encourages parents and other care providers to help each child establish a dental home by 12 months of age. Establishing a dental home provides some key advantages to dental care for your child including:
- Referrals to dental specialists when care cannot be provided within the dental home
- Comprehensive oral health care, including preventive services and acute care
- Personalized preventive dental health program based upon a caries-risk assessment
- Anticipatory guidance regarding growth and development plan for acute dental trauma (emergencies)
- Dietary counseling
- Referral at an age determined by the parent, patient, and pediatric dentist
