Family Owned, Kid Focused

Davis Pediatric Dentistry Has Been Caring for Local Children for Over 30 Years

cs_davispediatric2Since 1978, Davis Pediatric Dentistry in Encinitas has been offering comprehensive pediatric dental care for patients from birth to age 18. The family-owned practice “has grown and flourished just like the city has,” Dr. Patrick Davis acknowledged. Today, Dr. Davis works alongside his son, Dr. Matt Davis, and their associate, Dr. Edna Pamaran. Much like the city itself, Davis Pediatric Dentistry is known for its relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

“As pediatric dentists, our goal is to provide information on how to begin caring for your child’s teeth.”

cs_davispediatric5Dr. Davis emphasizes pediatric dental care is a crucial component of a child’s health and well-being. Referring to recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Academy of Pediatrics, he stated that children should have their first dentist appointment no later than their first birthday. “As pediatric dentists, our goal is to provide information on how to begin caring for your child’s teeth, with regular dental visits and home care,” Dr. Matt Davis affirmed. This focus on pediatric patients and preventative care ensures each child receives a foundation and practice for a lifetime of health.

The dentists and staff at Davis Pediatric Dentistry are committed to providing the best practices of their field. “We use the most up-to-date procedures, appliances, and techniques, along with state-of-the-art sterilization and digital imaging to ensure your child receives the safest and best treatment possible,” explained Dr. Patrick Davis.

Dr. Pamaran, a San Diego native, recently served as an International Health Emissary, treating the dental needs of children in Guatemala.

Along with their top-notch dental services, Davis Pediatric Dentistry also makes sure every office visit is fun. As one mother explained, “Our kids love going to the dentist, starting with the awesome waiting area straight through the visit. The doctors and staff have a gentle approach which really puts the children at ease.” For patients with special needs, Dr. Patrick Davis shared, “Our office caters to children with special needs. We have trained personnel that will help you make a good decision on how to accomplish treatment.”

Come see why so many leading local medical and dental professionals trust Davis Pediatric Dentistry for their own children.
