Meet Dr. Mara L Teplitsky

Being a pediatric dentist means creating a positive feeling for a child when they think about their teeth.

At Gordon Pediatric Dental, we all want the children to be excited to come to our office, and not fearful of the unknown. There are so many different methods and modalities that we now have to alleviate apprehension and all providers are truly committed to a quality experience.

We want the best for your child. No exceptions.

Personally, I love being able to help a child navigate through an event they have never experienced before, and make it enjoyable. Not to mention the added bonus of hugs and high-fives afterwards!

As a pediatric dentist, a happy child, who has had a positive visit and leaves with a big smile and saying they can’t wait to come back, is the best experience for me!
