Your First Visit

Laser Dentistry

Services 

Our mission is to empower children to have a positive dental experience. Our fun office and expertise help keep patients calm and to develop healthy attitudes toward oral health.

Cleaning

Regular cleanings are essential to your child’s oral health. Cleanings take about 30 minutes. We remove plaque and tarter that damage tooth enamel and cause gum inflammation. We also polish the teeth so they look as white as possible. To help avoid decay, children should be seen every six months for cleanings.

Filling

When the surface of a tooth has been damaged through decay or wear, a filling can often fix it. To do this procedure a patient is sedated and a local anesthetic applied. The tooth is then prepared by removing the damaged parts, cleaning it, and then filling that area with adhesives and filling material to make it appear and feel as natural as possible.

Emergencies

If your child has chipped. cracked, or knocked out a tooth, getting into our office as soon as possible can often save the tooth, and prevent infection. If you’re unsure if it’s an emergency or have any questions, please call our office at 480-739-2993. Timely treatment can reduce the possibility of further dental complications.

Extractions

When a tooth has to be extracted due to decay, trauma or interference with a permanent tooth, Dr. Chaffee will gently remove the tooth. If needed, Dr. Chaffee can insert a spacer to give the emerging permanent tooth a good shot at coming in straight. Your child will need to eat a soft diet afterward.

B. Maendel

Dr. Chaffee is great with kids and is a fantastic dentist. He ensures you and your child are comfortable as possible. At first my child was scared at the dentist but dr. Chaffee took amazing steps to make sure that she was not scared. She now gives him a hug before we leave. He is such a great dentist. She had dental work done years ago that is still perfect and healthy. I recommend him to everybody.

A. Siqueiros

Great doc! Makes the little ones feel like they definitely can trust the one that helps take care of their teeth. He explains everything well to the parents that way they also feel comfortable with him treating their children. Dr. Chaffee treats each child as if they were his own in the dental chair. Highly recommend his office!

Missy M.

Dr. Chaffee is an amazing dentist that genuinely cares about his patients, I highly recommend him! He has served as our family pediatric dentist for the last 4 years. My child needed multiple invasive procedures and the situation as a parent felt overwhelming, they took the time to listen to what I could afford and worked out a payment plan I could commit to. Dr. Chaffee shows compassion, he has always focused on the comfort of the child and their parent/guardian. All of the dental work he did was with great skill, we have had zero issues with the work done on my child. Whenever anyone asks me for a children’s dentist, he is my #1 choice.

Donna

Dr. Chaffee is amazing with my boys! I can trust in what he says and the needs for my kids. His staff is very welcoming and makes our visit there fun and easy.

J. Simmons

Dr. Chaffee is an amazing dentist! My daughters love him. He is very patient with the kiddos and explains everything to you thoroughly. Highly recommended.

Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric dentists attend two years of dental school more than a general dentist. Their specialized training makes them experts in keeping anxious little patients comfortable through treatment. Dr. Chaffee is a board certified pediatric dentist, which means he voluntarily took post-doctoral training and examinations to demonstrate proficiency and excellence.
