Dr. Avenetti's Care Philosophy

“As a pediatric dentist, my practice philosophy is to provide quality preventive and restorative care with a family-centered approach. I believe it’s important to provide care consistent with the best available science/evidence. I believe in creating an experience that is individualized to each person’s needs. Additionally, I am passionate about promoting a positive dental experience for children, helping to establish healthy habits and a positive attitude towards oral health that will last a lifetime.”


Dr. David Avenetti, known by kids as “Dr. David,” is deeply committed to providing the highest possible quality dentistry and excellent customer service so that children and families enjoy coming to the dentist and value good oral health.
