Meet our talented and experienced Pediatric Dentists
Dr. Dove graduated from Marquette University Dental School. He completed his post-doctoral specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry at NSU/Miami Children's Hospital. Dr. Dove has been practicing for more than 21 years and his office accepts most insurance plans. They offer for the comfort of the child Nitrous Oxide, Oral Conscious Sedation, and General Anesthesia.
The philosophy of his practice is that they feel that Pediatric Dentistry is a vital component of the dental field as a whole. Their specialty encompasses all children from early in infancy through adolescence. The focus of the practice is the prevention of dental disease and infection. This is accomplished through professional office visits, good home care and oral hygiene, dietary management, and the use of fluorides. The goal is to maintain the integrity of the dental arch so that the child will grow and maintain his/her dentition to its maximum potential.
