Pediatric Dental Services

Welcome! Our hand picked team specializes in Pediatric Dentistry, Dentistry for children with special needs, and Preventive Services.

  • Baby Oral Health Check Up
    The Academy of Pediatrics recommends that in order to prevent dental problems, your child should have the proper oral evaluation when the first tooth appears, or no later than his/her first birthday. Your child’s oral health is very important. Primary, or “baby” teeth not only help children speak clearly and chew naturally, they also aid in forming a path that permanent teeth can follow when they are ready to come in.
  • Special Needs Pediatric Care
    At hellosmile we are fortunate to work with families that have a wide range of needs. For our patients with special needs we have specially trained staff that work with Autism, Downs Syndrome, and ADHD. We have developed special programs to serve all children.
  • Pediatric Dental Treatment
    We are here to serve as your child’s primary pediatric dental home from birth through adolescence. Through our SmileSchool program we are committed to preventive care and offer an array of tools to keep children engaged in their oral health.
  • Sedation and General Anesthesia
    We provide a comprehensive array of options from minimal sedation and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to office or hospital based general anesthesia. We have extensive experience in this area and are here to help your child with the most appropriate option when such treatment is needed.
  • Emergency Visits
    When accidents happen, or when your child is in pain our Pediatric Dental team are here to help you and your family during emergencies. We accept patients on short notice at times of emergency and have Specialists on call to help save your child’s teeth and restore his/her level of comfort quickly.

Orthodontics Services

At hellosmile, we believe that orthodontics involves more than "straightening teeth" — it enhances health and self-esteem and may improve a person’s overall quality of life.

  • Traditional Braces
    Traditional metal braces are the most common type of braces and are more comfortable today than ever before. Made of high-grade stainless steel, metal braces straighten your teeth using metal brackets and archwires. With metal braces, you have the option of adding colored elastics (rubber bands) for a more unique and colorful smile.
  • Invisalign
    Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you're wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective.
  • Emergency Treatment
    True orthodontic emergencies are rare, but when they occur we are available to you. As a general rule, you should call our office when you experience severe pain or have a painful appliance problem you can't take care of yourself. We'll be able to schedule an appointment to resolve the problem.
  • Early Orthodontic Treatment
    Early treatment (also known as Phase One) typically begins around age eight or nine. The goal of early treatment is to correct the growth of the jaw and certain bite problems, such as underbite. Early treatment also helps to make room for permanent teeth to come in properly, lessening the chance of extractions in the future.
  • Preventive Orthodontics
    We offer early preventive pre-orthodontic treatment, which encourages natural growth and development. Myobrace Treatment™ involves wearing a removable oral appliance for just a few hours a day and while sleeping.

Community Services

Oral hygiene, the practice of keeping the mouth and teeth clean in order to prevent cavities (dental caries), gum disease, and other dental disorders

  • Community Health Workshops

    Our SmileSchool program was designed to help children to understand about the effects of diet and the oral health care habits that are needed to keep their teeth, gums, and bodies healthy.

  • FREE Oral Health Kit

    At hellosmile our extensive community outreach efforts include free oral health screenings, education, and prevention at local daycares, schools, nurseries, and community agencies.

  • Z3 Mommy & Me Program

    Most parents are not aware of how important good dental care is to the health of the mother and baby. We have created a SmileSchool program to not only educate moms but also give them tools and resources to grow healthy babies.

hellosmile “WOW” experience

The hellosmile WOW experience was born from our desire to create a revolutionary “new approach” to children’s oral health. This “new approach” puts children and families at the center of the health experience and uses design, technology, and personal connection to move away from the focus on Disease “sick care” to a broader focus on Prevention “well care.”

Testimonials

We didn't tell my daughter it was the dentist because she was afraid after going with me to mine. hellosmile had toys and dinosaurs and even fun sunglasses for her to wear (while holding a baby dinosaur) during the cleaning to deflect the bright light. AMAZING!!! Done Done and done...I wish hellosmile been around when I was a kid!!!

Dr. Attaie is a highly skilled professional who demonstrates a profound understanding of love for young people. I know that my son is in good hands with him.

It was my 2.5 year-old's first dentist appointment and he was a bit nervous about it. The playroom at the office is excellent, large and inviting, with many interesting toys. Our doctor was very, very gentle and playful. She showed him each "instrument" she was going to use and let him touch it and become comfortable with it, which I thought was very clever. And to my complete amazement my son LOVED his first dental experience.

I have been to other pediatric dentists and can say hellosmile doctors have been by far the best! I will definitely be coming back. She made my 5 year old son feel so comfortable and answered all the questions that he had. There should be more dentists like her.

Amazing! The minute you enter the office, you feel a warm, comforting feeling that you will be well taken care of. Kassidy is 4 years old with some minor sensory/anxiety issues, and both the doctor and her assistant were very invested in Kassidy having a positive experience. Kassidy got through the appointment successfully with no stress. We've fallen in love with hellosmile and look forward to our next visit.

I took my 2 years old daughter to a hellosmile dentist last month. This was her first visit to the dentist and she loved it. Our hellosmile dentist was very nice, patient, and great with him. Perfect personality to deal with kids.

Our hellosmile dentist was absolutely amazing! She made my sons first visit fun and entertaining and he does not do well with doctors at all. I have already recommended her and her practice to my family over the weekend! We will definitely be going back.

I had two consecutive appointments with Dr. Attaie. One for my 6 year old getting his molars sealed and my 3 year old having his first ever appointment. My older son was a little nervous about the whole thing and Dr. Attaie wisely had me leave the room. My presence was making him (my son) a little more susceptible to emotions and by leaving, he was able to be brave and feel more independent. He came out of it like a champ. Good call by Dr. Attaie. And, my younger son was very reluctant to get in the chair or be manipulated at all. Miraculously, he gently got my son on my lap and laid him back so that he was laying on my lap and his lap, cleaned his teeth and did it all with zero tears or freak outs. He's a smooth operator. Also, the hygenist was incredibly sweet and the facility is beautiful and well designed.
