Quality Children’s Dental Care in a Kid-Friendly Space

You want the best for your child: a full and happy life, success in the goals they pursue, and a healthy body and smile!

At Sherwood Pediatric Dentistry, we want the same for each young patient we have the honor to care for. Dr. Stephen Sherwood and our team are dedicated to providing quality children’s dental care, in an encouraging environment, where every child knows they are heard and treasured.

We love spending our days surrounded by dynamic, unique personalities and respect each child for who they are now, as well as the person they are becoming. While in our care we teach every child about the importance dental health, establish healthy habits, and ensure they “graduate” with a healthy smile and the knowledge to maintain it, for life!

What’s Different at Sherwood Pediatric Dentistry?

We strive to provide a fun and happy place where kids are free to be their wonderful selves – not little adults. We want children to look forward to their visits, to know that we care about them personally, and to always know they are safe.

As a practice that sees only children – infants through teens and those with special needs – we’ve designed our space to be kid-friendly and fun. We even have ceiling-mounted TVs so kids can watch their favorite movies during visits!

  • Our goal is for every person who comes to our office to feel like family. We welcome everyone with warmth, are attentive listeners, and appreciate the opportunity to get to know each child and their family.
  • As a father of four – Grant, Gabby, Garrett, and Gregory – Dr. Sherwood excels at relating to children. His calm and kind demeanor helps those who are worried feel safe, and he takes all the time needed to let a child settle down before starting care.
  • Additionally, Dr. Sherwood is the father of a child with special needs. His oldest son, Grant, has cerebral palsy, and this gives the doctor a unique perspective and ability to empathize and connect with our special needs patients. He also understands the joys and challenges that parents of children with special needs deal with daily. Dr. Sherwood feels that Grant has taught him more than he could have ever learned on his own about patience, perseverance, and gratitude.
  • Our practice philosophy is of prevention and conservative management of children’s dental needs. Today’s options allow us to address cavities and other issues using less-invasive techniques. That said, sometimes a filling is needed and for that we offer the Solea Dental Laser, which allows us to fill a tooth without needing “shots” or “drills” in the majority of cases!
