At New Leaf Pediatric Dentistry, our mission is to provide a warm and nurturing dental home for every child. We are devoted to serving all of your children’s dental needs, and firmly believe preventative care and education are fundamental to the growth of healthy, beautiful and confident smiles.

One of our goals is to have a continuing relationship with each child so that we can assess their cavity risk over time, provide anticipatory guidance on oral health care, and implement preventive strategies to create a cavity free childhood.  We understand each child is unique and therefore deserves individualized dental care. This is why appointments at New Leaf Pediatric Dentistry are never rushed.  We strive to spend as much quality time as necessary to not only provide excellent dental care, but also to properly educate our patients in an effort to establish healthy habits at an early age.

We also place a strong emphasis on safety and infection control in our office.  Our staff is trained in Basic Life Support (BLS) and adhere to strict standards recommended by the American Heart Association (AHA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Your child’s oral health is integral to their general health. Visit our office or contact us to learn more or to schedule an appointment.  We look forward to meeting you and your child.

I can not say enough positive and good comments about New Leaf Dentist. The entire experience from waking in to leaving is quick, easy, clean and friendly! My son absolutely LOVES going here and loves the one on one attention he gets from the Dentist and assistant. They make him feel extra special by going above and beyond with all the little things, stuffed animals for comfort, different flavor pastes, tv on ceiling and a social prize at the end. Highly recommend to everyone!

Very friendly and prompt staff. The very first time I called in, Dr. Cherrish was courteous enough to listen to my daughter’s dental issues over the phone and tell us what we could do. Due to COVID-19 pandemic we couldn’t go to visit her office but she was very prompt to follow up with us via email. Also once we got a chance to schedule an office visit for cleaning she made my daughter very comfortable during the cleaning process. I would highly recommend New Leaf Pediatric Dentistry.

Wow. Dr. Cherish's professionalism and kindness is just above and beyond...!!! Today, I was in an urgent search for a dentist for my son. He was complaining about his cavity (that has been previously treated by a different dentist) for about a week now, and today there was so much pain that he woke up from a nap crying that his tooth hurts. I literally called 10 other offices, but they were either full for another week, did not open yet, or they didn't accept our insurance. I called New Leaf as well, and Dr. Cherish said that they accept our insurance, but were not open yet from COVID, but she still listened to me so kindly. She asked me to describe my son's pain in details, and even offered to see some pictures through email, so maybe she can prescribe him antibiotics if that helps. Idk if we took a good quality pictures, as my son is only 3 and has a small mouth, and it's so difficult to take pictures inside the mouth. But she took her time to take a look at his tooth through email, and told us what she thinks he might have. Fortunately, I did find a dentist that was opened and could see my son before they closed today, so my son was treated well! And Dr. Cherish has mentioned on email what exactly the doctor today have said to me when I brought my son, and I was able to see how professional and experienced Dr. Cherish must be!!! (Consulting 100% correctly through non-professionally taken pictures!) I just wished my son would have been able to come here and I know I will be 200% happy and assured with Dr. Cherish!!! But I am just so glad that now my son can eat and sleep without feeling the pain. And I am sincerely thankful of Dr. Cherish for taking her time to comfort me and consulting in such details, when their office wasn't even opened!! Thank you!!
