Melissa Rozas D.D.S.

We believe every child deserves exceptional dental care and a healthy smile! In our office, we take that belief a step further, because we believe children deserve exceptional pediatric dental care in a fun and loving environment! Providing our families and patients with the highest level of service through every step of the dental experience is our goal. From infants to teens, we are ready to take care of each child through each stage of their life.

From the moment you step into our office, you’ll notice the relaxing beach décor and child-friendly environment. Our office was designed not only to be comfortable for children, but also for mom and dad. We offer several seating areas, along with chilled bottles of water, and complimentary Wi-Fi to keep you comfortable while your child is in their dental appointment. It’s not uncommon for our parents to comment that they feel as though they are in a beach resort or spa!

Yes, we perform all of the usual dental care procedures like filling cavities and applying sealants, but we also teach families about nutrition, fluoride use, and prevention of oral trauma. Children are invited to kick back and watch a movie and then play video games in the Shark Shack when done with their appointment. Just in case that’s not quite fun enough, we are excited about our newly implemented experience called The Learning Lab. Patients don lab coats and perform a variety of quick experiments while learning about healthy lifestyle choices that will not only lead to a healthy smile, but also a healthy body.

Come visit us and see that a visit to the dentist really can feel like a day at the beach!

Many dental appointments later for cavities, 3 sets of braces, and a set of wisdom teeth removed, she still loved going to see her dentists. “I knew very early that I loved being in a dental office atmosphere and that I wanted to be a pediatric dentist”. She also had a cousin who was a pediatric dentist in Mississippi and visiting his office was the highlight of her trip! (read more)
