Pediatric Dentistry


Pediatric Dental Services

We wanted to give parents the option to stay close to home, and trust that their child is being cared for by a dentist who knows what’s best for his young patients because he works exclusively with children - that's why we have a Pediatric Dentist on our Dental Team. Dr. Matthew  Bernard,  DMD knows dental treatment can be scary to children, so he and his team approach every one of our patients with kindness, explaining the process every step of the way, in a fun and relaxed environment.  Dr. Bernard also specializes in managing the oral  health of children with special health care needs, and knows how important it is to work with  families to construct a dental health plan that matches their values. Whether your child needs a checkup, filling, or more extensive care, the Pediatric Dental Team at St. Joseph Dentistry is here to help.
