Carlsbad Children’s Dentistry enchants children with vibrant decorations, engages them with child focused care, and encourages them to achieve a lifetime of good oral healthcare. Their goal is to make dentistry “A Walk in the Park,” where every visit is fun, relaxed and easy.

The husband and wife team of Drs. Dabir and Cuisia opened their practice in April 2008 to provide the friendliest and most comprehensive detailed care for children. They are pediatric experts with two years of extensive training in children’s dentistry after their DDS program. In addition to routine care, Dr. Dabir and Dr. Cuisia are licensed to provide care with nitrous oxide and oral sedatives for children and adolescents who may be anxious about treatment. They are also credentialed as senior staff at Rady Children’s Hospital for more extensive procedures. They are Diplomats of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, and serve the community through different non-profit organizations.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children should see a dentist on their first birthday or their first tooth. Carlsbad Children’s Dentistry has experience caring for children, as young as a month old up to adolescent years, with age-appropriate dental procedures and preventative guidelines. They provide each child the time, attention and care specific to his or her need. Their patients appreciate the unique care. “This is by far the BEST Children’s Dentistry in my area. Everyone at the office is very nice, polite and caring. They make the experience for children less scary and always give them a surprise at the end so the kids have something to look forward to. I’ve been taking my daughter to them since she was one (she’s four now) and will continue to take her. Dr. Dabir is also very caring and professional. Highly recommended!” – Elizabeth

It is all about the children at Carlsbad Children’s Dentistry. Children can choose a parent-approved movie to watch while their teeth are being cleaned and select flavored toothpaste for the hygienist to use. The hygienist and dentist even use flavored gloves! “The dental suction is ‘Mr. Thirsty’ and the water syringe is the ‘water gun’,” explained Dr. Dabir. “By using child-friendly and familiar terms, we help our patients to understand what these tools do. This helps them understand the procedures better and to relax during their dental visit.” At the end of the appointment, kids get goody bags filled with a new toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, tCarlsbadChildrensDentistry_04oys and stickers.

Parents play a crucial role in their preventative care environment. Every effort is made to start appointments right on time and parents are welcome to sit in the rooms with their children. At Carlsbad Children’s Dentistry, “We make dentistry a walk in the park,” both the child and parents are a valued part of their practice.
