Dr. Kavee’s practice in pediatric dentistry incorporates her beliefs that all children and families are unique. There is never just one way to treat a problem, and the family must be comfortable with both the process and outcome of the treatment. Prevention should be the emphasis on all treatment, and this is a partnership between the practice and the family. When treatment is needed, the patient needs to feel comfortable so that they will not be afraid to return and good habits can be fostered. Parents should understand what and why we are prescribing a specific treatment and that all treatment is comprehensive. Dr. Kavee strives to educate her patients and their families on the concept that oral health cannot be separated from overall health. She works to excite people to reach optimal oral health and to help children develop into a healthy adult dentition without fear so that they will maintain it into adulthood.
