Dr. Melissa Rozas and Dr. Loria Nahatis, moms themselves, know the importance of making a child feel comfortable and safe in the dental office. They are passionate about creating a positive dental experience that is also fun and educational for the entire family. “Good communication, trust, and common goals towards a healthy and happy smile is our mission,” says Dr. Rozas.
Both Dr. Rozas and Dr. Nahatis love seeing patients as infants or by age 1 year. “Seeing the babies early in life, allow us the ability to help the parents establish proper oral hygiene techniques and assess the child’s risk for cavities. We are also able to evaluate potential problems such as tongue and lip-tie, mouth breathing, and their effects or oral development,” says Dr. Nahatis. They are passionate about working with special needs children and their families to customize an oral health plan that suites their dental needs.
Dr. Rozas and Dr. Nahatis are both board certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and are active members in American Dental Association, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the Texas Dental Association, The Greater Dallas Pediatric Dental Society and the Academy Laser Study Club. Dr. Rozas is past president of the Texas Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and is currently serving as co-chairman of the Greater Pediatric Dental Society
