Take a tour of our office before your first visit.
We are proud to offer dental services for special needs patients. It is important to us that each and every patient feels comfortable coming to the dentist.
The most common anesthetic we use is a local anesthetic. This blocks pain in a specific area of the mouth. We often apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area before we give the injection.
My children have had cleanings and treatment at Star Pediatric Dentistry. Each visit has been pleasant and easy. My daughter had had teach pulled and remembers those visits as "FUN"!! She mostly talks about her prize! My little guy recently had cavities filled and it went way smoother than I thought it would. Dr. Verma was calming and comforting, the assistant was making my son laugh, and the girls at the front desk were friendly and helpful. I highly recommend any parent to take their children here. Everyone is awesome and the office looks super cool for kids too!Shannon M.9/11/2017
We have been taking our kids here for the past 3 years and it’s always been a very pleasant experience. We never worry about them being scared to go the dentist for a check up. Dr. Verma and the entire staff do a great job putting us at ease at all times.Michael G.1/31/2021

Today was my toddler’s first dental exam, and it was a very positive experience. The office is extremely clean and kid friendly. Jessica, RDH was so sweet and gentle with my son. She was also very thorough and addressed all of my concerns. Dr. Rishi was just as great and very patient focused. I will definitely visit this practice regularly and highly recommend to others.Danielle M.6/27/2019
My girls, (ages 5 and 21 months) absolutely love going to the dentist! They love the bright colors that the office is decorated in, the fun “gifts” that they give away and the awesome personalities of the staff. Dr. Verma and his dental techs are amazing with young kids. They show the kids the dental tools and let them see they are not scary, they take their time with the cleanings and visits and all with smiles on their friendly faces. They truly love what they do and it shows each and every visit. I would recommend star pediatric dentistry 100% of the time!Kalen W.3/13/2019
