Dr. Heher is a Family Dentist Gently Caring for Young Smiles and Building Positive Livelong Attitudes toward Dentistry

A first dental visit should be a positive, pleasant experience. I think you will find I’m a caring family dentist who puts children and their parents at ease with his welcoming manner and gentle approach. My doctoral thesis was on enhancing treatment of children, and I was delegated the responsibility of treating many of the dependent military children during his first two years in the Navy.

We recommend you bring your child for a visit sometime between the ages of 12-18 months, before serious problems have a chance to develop. I will gently examine your child’s mouth to check for proper tooth development and bite alignment. To prevent cavities, we use dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Both treatments deter decay and are an inexpensive investment in your child’s future oral health and smile.

Older children with crooked teeth or a misaligned bite, may require braces. We’ll refer you to a trusted orthodontist for specialized care.

Because an attractive smile DOES matter. Call today to schedule your child’s appointment with Dr. Heher, your family dentist. We deliver exceptional care and personalized service to residents of Salisbury and Delmarva.
