Coastal Pediatric Dentistry® is an affiliate of Coastal Cosmetic Family Dentistry, providing gentle dental care for children of all ages. The doctors at Coastal Pediatric have provided extraordinary care to families in Brunswick County for 20 years.
Coastal Pediatric offers a comprehensive list of services so patients do not have to travel outside of Brunswick County for quality dental care. Coastal Pediatric values constant and never ending improvement and wants to not only take care of our family of patients, but others in the Brunswick County community.
We realized parents were traveling to Wilmington or Myrtle Beach for their child(ren) to see a pediatric dentist, and decided to add a Pediatric Dentist to our team to help busy families save time. We offer extended office hours and some Saturdays to eliminate missing school and/or extracurricular activities.
Coastal Pediatric Dentistry® is conveniently located in the same complex as Coastal Cosmetic Family Dentistry at the Bolivia (Hwy 211) location, allowing busy moms the opportunity to get the entire family’s dental needs taken care of under one roof. For the same reasons patients love CCFD, Coastal Pediatric Dentistry® provides the same extraordinary patient care you are accustomed to.
