Pediatric and Young Adults
Pediatric dentistry is an area of specialization that focuses on the treatment of children from birth to adolescence with a concentration on growth, development, and behavioral guidance for both healthy and special needs children. Drs. Rontal or Joseph Nau focuses on methods that promote strong foundations in prevention and home care. Prevention and education are important in our practice, and we take seriously that you and your child need to understand how to take charge of and protect your child’s oral health. We are always available to answer questions about your child’s dental needs and the services we can provide for you child’s ideal treatment. We offer a wide range of services to meet the needs of your child, including:
- Comprehensive Examinations
- Diagnostic and Preventative Services (Sealants/Fluoride)
- Restorative Procedures (Fillings/Crowns)
- Endodontic (root canal) treatment for children/adolescents
- Cosmetic Procedures
- Emergency Care/Trauma
- Habit and Athletic Appliances

- Comprehensive Orthodontics
Your child should have a comprehensive dental examination every 6 months, which includes a thorough exam of the teeth and gums. We use the findings from our examination to formulate a complete diagnosis and comprehensive treatment plan for your child.
Recommendations for treatment are explained at a consultation time set aside specifically for you and your child. The consultation can take place during the initial appointment or can be scheduled as a separate appointment. Our goal is to ensure that you receive the best possible information concerning your child’s treatment options. The time we invest in patient education enables us to deliver the best possible outcome for your child’s dental treatment and your peace of mind.
