We are here to have a positive impact on children’s lives and to motivate them to maintain a healthy, happy smile.

We provide a team approach toward bettering the lives of children through quality dental health care. Our practice is growing, professional, and courteous. Our employees choose to be a part of this team because of their love for children.
OUR GOAL: Keeping smiles on track!
During your first visit to our office we want to take the time to get acquainted and gather information. This includes a thorough examination and possibly taking x-rays we feel may be required to make a complete diagnosis. At this time we will also discuss with you the nature of any necessary dental care.
We have ways of explaining procedures to children, being honest and presenting it in a manner that will not frighten them. If you child asks, “will it hurt?” We feel it is wise to say that the Dentist is your friend and will be very gentle with you. Avoid phrases such as “it won”t hurt” and “that wasn”t so bad.”

Why Choose a
Dr. Worley practices exclusively to the treatment of children, specializing in the treatment and prevention of dental disease, as well as the overall oral health of children. Through extra years of schooling, training, experience, and certification, a pediatric dentist is uniquely qualified to treat the dental needs of infants, children, adolescents and those with special health care needs.
Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?
A pediatric patient not only has a different dentition than adults but he/she may have specific dental and behavioral needs that are unique to a child. These needs may include dental sealants, fluoride applications or home treatments, or just simply education in oral hygiene. In addition to treating existing dental problems, our office focuses on prevention through patient and parent education. Our mission is to provide all of the educational tools necessary for our patients to enjoy a cavity-free future.
CHILDREN & TEENS
As a an orthodontist, Dr Edward “Jet” Trahan, II
is an expert on the growth and development of children’s dentition, jaws and craniofacial structures. An early growth and development evaluation may provide your child with a more positive experience should they need early-orthodontic treatment from our doctors.
Depending on your child’s unique smile, we may recommend types of treatments including orthodontic appliances, traditional silver colored braces, headgear and retention devices.
Studies have shown that the beautiful smile orthodontics can provide may lead to greater self confidence which could then lead to a more fulfilling life for your child.
