The members of our dental team all have one thing in common: we love kids, and we are enthusiastic about helping them achieve the best dental health possible. We participate in a variety of educational endeavors, including infection control, CPR, and OSHA training, both individually and as a group.


Financial Policy

We accept most major insurance plans and as a courtesy, we will submit your insurance claim for you. The portion that is not covered by the insurance company is your responsibility and due at the time of service.


It is beneficial for you to know and understand what your insurance benefits are, including deductibles and co-pays. Regrettably, we do not dictate insurance policies

and can only work with them.


We accept cash, check, Visa, and Mastercard and CareCredit as payment.



Appointments are considered confirmed once they are made. Our automatic system will call to remind you of your child’s appointment 24 hours in advance. We will also provide an email reminder 48 hours in advance. We do require a 24 hours notice for cancellations.


We are aware of school policies that make it more difficult for children to be out of school for any reason. We will be happy to provide you with a school excuse note.


All restorative (fillings, extractions, etc.) procedures are scheduled from 8-3 and sometimes the younger children may be asked to come in the morning hours as they are better prepared and do better in the morning for these types of procdures.


We strive to see all patients on time for their scheduled appointment. We make every effort to stay on schedule.  Please remember, we run on children's time, not adult time.  Additionally, there are times when our schedule is delayed in order to accommodate an emergency visit. Please accept our apology in advance should this occur during your appointment. We will provide you the same courtesy if your child is in need of emergency treatment.


A parent or legal guardian (with official documentation) must be present in the office during appointment times.

    We always try to let you know the amount of your co-pay ahead of time.

Pediatric Dentistry

Learn more about Pediatric Dentistry:



What is a Pediatric Dentist?


A Pediatric Dentist, like Dr. Campbell, is a specialist dedicated to the oral health of children and the monitoring of their facial growth and development. Our office is designed for treating children from infancy through adolescence, as well as the medically and the physically compromised. In our opinion, taking your child to see a pediatric dental specialist is as important as taking them to see a pediatrician.


Establishing Your Child’s Dental Home


The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry encourages parents and other care providers to help every child establish a dental home by 12 months of age. Establishing a dental home provides some key components to dental care for your child including...


  • Comprehensive oral health care including acute care and preventive services.

  • Individualized preventive dental health program based upon a caries-risk assessment.

  • Anticipatory guidance regarding growth and development.

  • Plan for acute dental trauma (emergencies).

  • Dietary counseling.

  • Referrals to dental specialists when care cannot directly be provided within the dental home.

  • Referral at an age determined by patient, parent, and pediatric dentist.
