Pediatric Needs at Virginia Family Dentistry

August 4, 2022

Ethan Puryear, DDS "'What I enjoy most about being a pediatric dentist is making dental care fun and enjoyable for children. Striving for optimal oral health in a child builds the foundation for a lifetime of excellent oral health."

A child’s first visit to the dentist should be a positive, even exciting experience. After all, this first step will set the tone for healthy, lifelong dental habits. We make sure every aspect of the child’s visit is carefully considered so we can customize the experience to be the best it can be.
