Evolving Pediatric Dentistry in Newark, DE as Your Child Grows

Children's teeth and gums undergo a significant change and development as they age, and it's vital to have professional dental care and treatment starting early.

Dr. Erin Macko, your children's dentist in Newark, DE, offers gentle children's dentistry that is sensitive to your child's needs. We also provide information and counseling about the best ways to begin a quality at-home dental hygiene routine and how to care for your child's teeth, including at what age your child can brush unassisted.

Routine visits to the dentist are essential to your child's long-term dental health. Children's dentistry allows us to determine the potential for future problems, to diagnose existing threats, and to make treatment and care recommendations. Our professionals can educate you on the current status of your child's teeth and what is necessary to maintain a healthy smile.

  • Comprehensive dental exams, including digital x-rays as needed
