Welcome to Our Practice

At Abington Children's Dentistry and Orthodontics, we provide exceptional care in a child-centered, compassionate environment. We believe every child is unique, and there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to treating our patients. Below you will find the top five things we'd like you to know about our practice:

1. Growing children aren't just miniature adults

Just like your pediatrician is a highly specialized doctor focused on the growth and development of your child, your pediatric dentist and orthodontist are highly trained dentists with specific expertise in the oral/dental needs of developing children through young adulthood. You'll find that pediatric dentists and orthodontists are trained beyond what you'll find with a general dentist - and that makes a big difference for little patients.

2. No two children are alike

Every child is unique - they have different needs and challenges. Our practice prides itself on the fact that we try to understand as much as we can about each one of our patients in order to provide care in a unique, family-centered manner.

3. Experience matters

Our doctors have proudly been serving the South Shore of Massachusetts since 1999. Combining our knowledge of pediatric dentistry and orthodontics within the same practice allows for streamlined communication and collaboration regarding your child's care.

4. Education is key

We strive to provide the best evidence-based, up-to-date care for our patients. All of our doctors have undergone the rigorous training to become board-certified in their field and continue to expand their knowledge through continuing education. Our clinical staff attend continuing education courses and meetings throughout the year to make sure we our up-to-date on the latest research and protocols.

5. We LOVE what we do

And that pretty much says it all. Our entire staff loves what they do - from the front desk to the clinical staff to our pediatric dentists and orthodontist. We've chosen this profession because we love children, we love dentistry and we believe that it is possible to help raise a generation of children who look forward to going to the dentist.

We proudly serve families of the greater Abington area, including Whitman, Hanson, Halifax, the Bridgewaters, Rockland, Hanover, and Pembroke. We invite you to explore our website or give us a call at 781-347-5898 for more information.

    Both of my toddlers have had excellent experiences here! The hygienist and dentist always take the time to make them feel comfortable and even have fun. They look forward to going for their appointments!

    The Souto Family

    We have had nothing but a positive experience at Abington Children’s Dentistry! Everyone we have come in contact with who works there is professional, pleasant, thorough, and knowledgeable. They run on time, are easy to communicate with, and always return calls in a timely manner. The staff are great about communicating with the kids to let them know each step of the process (general cleaning, tooth extraction and ortho/braces). I would highly recommend Abington Children’s Dentistry.

    The McEvoy Family

    Super nice and helpful staff both live and on the phone. Great dentists. And TVs on the ceiling for the children while they get their cleanings!

    The Whitman Family

    This was our first visit since the pandemic for 3 kids under 7. It was absolutely wonderful. We felt fully welcomed, comfortable and safe. All 3 children left with smiles on their faces. Abington Children’s Dentistry has thought of everything to make visiting the dentist pleasant for the whole family - from simultaneous appointments in the same room to screens on the ceiling to entertain squirmy kids, to sunglasses, and perfectly timed incentives. They were thorough, clear, kind, friendly, and patient. Just an all-around excellent experience.

    The Eby Family

    Visiting Abington Children's Dentistry and Orthodontics gives my family and me more reasons to smile.
