Oral health influences our lives even before tooth eruption. Although professional dental care does not begin until about one year of age, there are oral care practices that should begin earlier. Dr. Nathan Pfister
has provided the utmost in holistic dental care to families for many years. His extensive training makes him a wonderful resource for new parents and families with young children interested in prevention and avoiding dental problems. In our Dothan holistic dental practice, we recognize that children require a specific type of care in order to feel comfortable. With the goal of prevention in mind, our team provides consistently friendly, nurturing care to our youngest patients.
Pediatric dentistry involves care for young people who have yet to develop the ability to care for their oral health independently. Dr. Pfister and his staff team up with parents to teach children the benefits of good oral care. Children can learn what they need, however, only when they are comfortable and at ease. When treating children, we cater to their needs for fun and security. We explain in easy-to-understand terms the aspects of oral health important to their wellbeing and demonstrate for patients and their parents the proper ways to care for teeth and gums.
What our Patients Say
We took my 8 month old son to Dr. Pfister to evaluate his mouth for possible ties. It was such a great experience! He was so caring and genuine and immediately put me at ease. Dr. Pfister was amazing with my little guy. He released his lip tie, and it was done so quickly! When you look down at your nursing baby and see his upper lip flare out like it should for the first time in his life it’s easy to get a little emotional. I highly recommend this dentist! I only wish I had found him sooner!

Early dental experiences will drive your child's view of dentistry for many years. Often, adults who fear seeing the dentist can attribute anxiety to childhood dental visits. We take our role in your child's oral health seriously and know that their experience in our office can lead them into a lifetime of optimal oral health. One of the ways we enhance visits is to prioritize comfort.
Dr. Pfister has included technologies into our practice based on their safety and efficacy. Some of these technologies, such as our Dexis CariVu cavity finder and micro air-abrasion, help us treat common childhood dental problems in their earliest possible stages. Using this precision technology, our goal is to help your child have favorable dental experiences while avoiding serious dental problems such as "baby root-canals", extractions, and developmental complications.
At Biodentist Alabama, we monitor the growth of teeth and the jaw and to help prevent problems such as speech difficulties and sleep apnea. In our office, your child's smile takes center stage. Call
