Our mission at PedZ Dental is to make every dental visit a positive one. After all, the habits your child forms will lead to a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Dr. Stacey Zaikoski, Dr. Angela Cook, and Dr. Greg Notestine’s goals are to take away any stress your child may feel and allow them to have fun while at our office. It’s important for us to develop a relationship with our patients so we can best serve our community.
In order to make your child comfortable, we’ll begin by explaining the teeth cleaning procedure. Rather than diving straight into the cleaning, we believe educating the child will help make them feel more comfortable in the dental chair. This method is also a key component in the children being able to learn how to take care of their teeth while they are at home in between visits to the pediatric dentist, which in the long run will lead to healthier, stronger looking teeth and gums.
Dr. Stacey Zaikoski and Dr. Angela Cook are board-certified pediatric dentists who offer pediatric dental care for children starting at the time of the eruption of the first tooth or the first birthday, whichever comes first. Our goal is to provide early positive experiences to build confidence and a love for coming to the dentist. We are proud to offer comprehensive dental care with a focus on prevention services, gentle treatment options, sedation dentistry, and care for children with special needs. We strive to be the best kid’s dentist in Dayton, Ohio.
A “frenectomy” or “frenotomy” is a procedure that releases the tightness of a small band of tissue under the lip or tongue (called a frenum) and allows the lip or tongue to move more freely. Dr. Greg Notestine limits his practice to diagnosing and treating these frenums (also called tethered oral tissues, or “TOTS”) to improve normal oral functions such as eating or speaking. We perform this safe procedure using laser technology which also makes it fast and comfortable.
We believe that every child should have the opportunity to quality dental care. For this reason, we have several financing options in place at PedZ Dental. We accept many insurance plans including Aetna, Cigna, Delta, MetLife PDP Plus, Superior, and many more. Please contact our office with questions about specific insurance plans. We also have a convenient payment plan through CareCredit.
