Orthodontic Care

Creating smiles that last a lifetime...

Dr. Lepetich believes that caring for a pediatric patient is more than diagnosing and completing a procedure. Over the years, his concern for children’s oral health expanded beyond pediatric dentistry and he became particularly sensitive to the delicate emotions of children who hesitated to smile because their teeth were not as straight as they wished them to be. Dr. Lepetich developed such a strong interest in orthodontics that he completed additional instruction in the delivery of orthodontic care for his patients in addition to pediatric dentistry.

As we continue to adapt to the changing nature of Covid-19, our office routinely monitors the Community Level of Covid-19 as part of CDC public indoor guidance/safety protocols. Currently, our community level is LOW, which means masks are welcome but not required in our office. If you or your child are at severe risk for illness from Covid-19, we encourage you to wear a mask in all public indoor areas, per CDC guidelines. As we continue to monitor our local levels, we will require indoor masking in our office if our local level is upgraded to HIGH.

Children’s Dental Village team members will continue to adhere to Covid-19 safety protocols. The health and safety of our patients and families is our top priority and the clinical team will continue wearing all proper personal protective equipment. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.
