Our dentist can give your child a checkup — at Pediatrics!
Your child can now receive a screening from a BNHC dentist during your next appointment in Pediatrics.

Dr. Gaul, who is multi-lingual, exams your child’s mouth, gums and teeth to ensure a happy, healthy smile in the future. She also administers fluoride, shows parents how to clean their child’s teeth and gums, and looks for any warning signs that teeth aren’t coming in as they should. The team also discusses proper nutrition for your child, the best sippy cups to use, and reviews several other healthy ways to get your child’s teeth off to a strong start.
“We want to give your child the opportunity for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums,” said Dr. Gaul.
Screenings are conducted on Mondays and Tuesdays, and can be scheduled the same day as your child’s next visit at Pediatrics by calling 508-894-3363.
