Pediatric Dentistry


As a husband-and-wife team, Drs. Sam and Eric Ruiz are truly a family dental practice!

We are able to see most pediatric patients, and in fact, we love providing care for children! Children have an innate curiosity. They want to know more about their world, and we are excited to show them.

We’ll get your child started off on the right foot by helping guide his or her dental development, providing the opportunity to practice new habits, and eliminating future worries or dental anxieties. We’ll also take the time to talk to you so we can provide you with the advice you need to guide your child toward good habits and address any concerns you might have.

Here at Lakeland Family Dental, we enjoy being able to provide a comprehensive treatment experience for patients of all ages!

Studies have shown that children who learn the importance of oral hygiene early on experience fewer cavities and oral health problems in the future. We’d love to treat your little ones to a lifetime of happy dental visits!

We recommend that parents start bringing in their kids for regular appointments when they’re around three years old. Our pediatric services, including fluoride treatments and dental sealants, will reinforce and protect their developing teeth in comfortable ways, giving them the gift of a healthy smile.  Of course, we do welcome children younger than the age of three if you have a particular concern or would like to start their dental visits earlier!
