MARGARET C. MCGRATH, DMD, MPH; KAREN BENITEZ, DDS; STELLA CHUKWU, DDS, MS

 

We often hear parents say, “My child keeps asking when I can come back to the dentist?” Those stories make us happy and proud that children really do like our office! As pediatric dentists we provide both regular and specialty dental care for children ages 0–18 years, and for children with special needs. We offer many services that family dentists cannot offer, such as nitrous oxide sedation, mild oral sedation, and hospital dentistry. Our additional training also allows us to detect orthodontic issues earlier.

In 2014, Dr. Karen Benitez joined our practice. Dr. Benitez, originally from Missouri, is a board certified pediatric dentist. Just this summer we welcomed Dr. Stella Chukwu who brings both pediatric dental training and extensive work in dental public health.

We always enjoy meeting new patients, please call or visit our website for all office information.

WHO WE ARE


1. WHAT DO WE LOVE MOST ABOUT OUR PRACTICE?

We love being part of a warm, friendly and welcoming office for children & parents. As pediatric dentists we make the challenges of children’s dentistry an easy, positive experience.

2. WHAT CHARITABLE CAUSES DO WE SUPPORT?

We enjoy supporting many local charities. Our proudest accomplishment was supporting our staff members Rebecca Kellum & Lona Todd, who, combined, raised $145,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!
