“My kids were terrified going in for their first appointments but every single employee we encountered took time to reassure them and make it as comfortable as possible. The gentle kid-inspired approach and fun safari decor is greatly appreciated and makes kids not only tolerate their visit, but actually enjoy it. I couldn't believe it when my kids ASKED to floss their teeth after getting home. Talk about influence! That is one powerful message that is being sent, and I'm happy my kids are on board with it.” – Kathleen V.
“As intimidating as the thought of pulling a tooth is for a 12 year old, Dr. Julie and her team take extraordinary care in easing the angst of their patients. Also as a parent, I never have to worry about what happens once my son goes "back" with them. We LOVE Dr. Julie and her team. ” – Gary S.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child should see a pediatric dentist when his or her first tooth appears, or no later than his or her first birthday. It is also good to become an established patient and have a “dental home”, so that in the event of a dental emergency you will have someone to call.
Dr. Julie Russo and Dr. Alexandra Jensen have undergone two years of additional dental training in order to provide the best care for your children. They are both dedicated to helping children become successful lifelong dental patients without fear.
With our state-of-the-art office conveniently located in Clermont, Florida and we welcome patients from Orlando, Winter Garden, Ocoee, Groveland, Windermere, Apopka, Minneola and many other Central Florida locations. We have a fun safari themed office which engages children and puts them at ease as soon as they walk through the door. We encourage you to call our office and speak with one of our patient care coordinators to book an appointment so that we may become your child’s dental home.
