What sets us apart from other dental practices?

Child outside Pediatric Dentist in Cameron NC

As a specialist in pediatric dentistry, Dr. Ray places your child’s health and happiness as our top priorities. Everything we do goes toward ensuring that your little one receives only the most beneficial and effective treatment in a fun and non-threatening environment. We are committed to playing an important role in your child’s oral health from a very early age through adolescence and beyond. Our goal is to meet the dental needs, as well as the mental needs of each child. By seeing children starting at the age of 1, we are able to diagnose any dental issues early on, partner with parents to let them know what to expect as their children grow, all the while providing gentle and patient-focused comprehensive care on each step of their “journey”.

As a father, Dr. Ray knows that we all have a lot to balance when it comes to our children! We listen and work closely with parents to develop a customized treatment plan that is realistic, that can be accomplished, and builds on finding small changes in the daily routines of our children that will support good oral health for years to come.

As a scientist, Dr. Ray knows that there is a lot of information out there that might be confusing or scary. We all want to do the best for our children, but sometimes it hard to separate fact from fiction. With his research and scientific background, Dr. Ray reviews the latest studies to make sure that he uses materials and technique that work, and are supported by science. Dr. Ray treats every child as his own, and works with parents to make sure they have accurate, and correct information when it comes to the oral health of their children.

Call our office to schedule a consultation where your little one can meet Dr. Ray and our friendly staff, to tour our child friendly office, and to sit down with us and ask any questions you may have about treatments, our facility, doctor and staff, and financial concerns. We want you and your child’s time with us to be as stress-free, beneficial, and rewarding as possible, and we look forward to working our hardest to ensure this happens. At Southern Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, a great smile is a journey, not a destination. We look forward to joining your child on their journey.
