Loved by Kids

Trusted by Parents

At Steckler Pediatric Dentistry, we know that a lifetime of healthy smiles begins with a baby’s first tooth. Our kid-friendly practice is built on a love for children and a desire for them to be comfortable with dentistry. It is our goal for our patients to receive the highest quality of care, in a positive environment, and to provide dental education for the entire family– ultimately, creating healthy and beautiful smiles for all.


DR. Daniel “Danny” Steckler

Why Pediatric Dentistry?

All of our kid-centered services are provided in a calm, caring environment in order to provide you and your child with a positive experience. Pediatric dentists have 2-3 additional years of training and education after dental school that are specific to caring for the oral health of children. In our opinion, taking your child to see a pediatric dental specialist is as important as taking them to see a pediatrician.


The AAPD recommends that your child should be seen no later than 6 months after their first tooth erupts from the gum. Little teeth need as much attention as “big teeth” to prevent decay and encourage life-long healthy habits.

Do I Stay with My Child During the Visit?

We invite you to stay with your child during the initial appointment. Beyond that, we suggest you allow our caring staff to guide your child through the dental experience. Our purpose is to gain your child’s confidence and overcome any apprehension. However, if you’d prefer to join the appointments, you are welcome to do so.

“Amazing! Dr. Steckler and his staff are simply the best! I would definitely recommend to anyone. I wasn’t sure what to expect for my daughters first time ever at the dentist but all nerves were put to rest as soon as we walked into the door. As crazy as it sounds, I’m excited for my daughters second appointment!!!”

“This was my daughters third dentist after two failed attempts to fix a chipped tooth with a cavity. The only option was anesthesia. I asked around who was the best and I agree Dr. Steckler is awesome. No anesthesia and fixed tooth!”
