Pediatric dentists have completed an additional two years of post-doctoral training in the recognition and treatment of children’s dental and orthodontic problems. In other words, think of them as pediatricians of the mouth! At Santee Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, our team has been trained to keep your kids teeth healthy from infancy through adolescence.



The American Association for Orthodontists recommends that every child have an orthodontic evaluation by the age of seven. Early detection of potential orthodontic issues gives your child a better chance for natural and normal tooth development. Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time period to begin treatment.



The Santee Pediatric Dentistry team wants your child to have a positive and enjoyable experience at the dentist. During your child’s first visit, our team will review your child’s medical history and make sure that both you and your child are comfortable with our procedures and staff.


What Patients Are Saying

  • “We had a wonderful first-appointment experience.

    This office was a breath of fresh air.  Dr. Buzz and staff took their time explaining everything to us. They weren’t rushed, were thorough, informative and very friendly. Most importantly, my kids were relaxed and comfortable the whole time. Great choice for kiddos!”

  • “Dr. Buzz and his staff are a total dream.

    I have four kids and they get everyone in and out and are extremely patient with and kind to my less than cooperative one year old. It’s one of the few places I can go with my crew and feel at ease! I would highly recommend their office.”

  • “5 Stars! We had the best experience here!

    My daughter was really nervous but Ms. Rachel the Hygienist was so amazing. She did an awesome job explaining everything to my daughter and keeping her distracted when my toddler was getting a little restless. Dr. Buzz is very down to earth and conservative with treatment. The office is brand new and beautiful and the front office staff is really warm and friendly. We are very happy to have such a great dentist. Highly recommend, especially if you don’t have insurance as they are extremely reasonable!”

  • “First visit for both my kids (4 yrs & 20 months).

    The staff were all very warm and kind. The office is clean and definitely kid friendly. The dentist was very patient and family oriented. They took their time with both kids and made their first visit very positive. We feel very comfortable and confident in bringing our children here for all their current and future dental needs.”

  • “I was amazed at how nice and caring everyone was!

    My son has had some previous medical experiences that has left him scared of everything. Dr Buzz and his team are so understanding and just want to earn his trust. I almost cried at their whole approach to taking baby steps with him! Even breaking up his first visit into two visits. They are stuck with us now! I highly recommend them!”

  • “I took my 3 year old daughter for her first appointment with Santee Pediatric Dentistry today, and had the best experience!

    Dr. Buzz and Ms. Mareeesa (as my daughter called her) were amazing with my daughter, very patient, and extremely kind. They made her feel right and home, and she loved the TV on the ceiling, the play room, and the balloon/wand they gave her when she left. The facility is beautiful and they were an overall incredible team! Thank you!”

  • “My toddlers very first dentist visit!

    The staff was extremely helpful and the office was really clean and inviting. I would definitely recommend them to everyone. My 3 year old walked out of there saying she loves going to the dentist!”

  • “My kids felt so welcomed here!

    Their first trip to the dentist and the office was so clean and nice. The receptionist was friendly and the doctor was amazing! My kids age 1 and 3 loved their visit with the Dr Buzz. They loved the balloons and toys afterwards too! My older son ended up needing a filling, and that was much smoother than I expected. Thank you!!”
