What Sets Us Apart

Children’s Dental Associates has a reputation for offering comprehensive pediatric dental care and orthodontic treatment in a friendly, inviting, and professional environment. When you visit our practice, you're not just another smile - you're family! Our practice is owned and managed by the pediatric dentists in our office, not a corporate entity. We provide a variety of dental treatments that are comfortable, safe, and effective.

All of our pediatric dentists are board certified specialists. Pediatric dentists that are certified by the ABPD (American Board of Pediatric Dentistry) have met the standard of excellence set forth in providing high quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents, and patients with special healthcare needs. When a pediatric dentist becomes certified, he or she has successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills, and experience required to deliver the highest quality of patient care. Certification also reflects a dentist’s commitment to lifelong learning and continuing education. ABPD-certified dentists have a desire to practice pediatric dentistry at the highest level and are dedicated to constantly reevaluating their practice in light of the most recent scientific evidence.

Dr. Petrarca, Dr. Buckley, and Dr. Cooper are staff members at Boston Children's Hospital where they teach pediatric dental residents, and stay up to date on all new treatment techniques.

Both of our offices are equipped with nitrous oxide to help treat anxious children. When necessary, our pediatric dentists also have privileges at Boston Children's Hospital - Lexington to treat children safely with a full medical team under general anesthesia (asleep).

We understand that you have a busy schedule, and our office staff will gladly work with you to make sure that appointments are scheduled at your convenience.

Our entire dental team is dedicated to your child's health and helping maintain his or her beautiful smile for many years to come. We look forward to getting to know you and your family.
