Why Choose Playtime Dental?

Dr. Jackson and the Playtime Dental Team are devoted to making dentistry as relaxed and fun for your child as possible, providing excellence in dental care without stress, anxiety, or timidity on the part of the kids we see.

Having a general dentist as your child’s dental care provider offers several benefits – Dr. Jackson gets to know your child’s teeth and mouth and can track their progress as they grow. Playtime Dental can be your child’s dental home from their first tooth all the way through their teen years, providing everything from sports mouth guards to braces and more.

Our goal is to keep your child smiling all the way through early adulthood, providing education that will keep his or her teeth and mouth healthy and the smile shining bright!
