Welcome To The Pediatric Dental Clinic

Every child deserves a healthy smile. At The Pediatric Dental Clinic we strive to ensure that your child receives outstanding oral care in a fun, relaxed, and professional environment.

Located in Florence, Alabama, The Pediatric Dental Clinic is proud to serve The Shoals community. In the same way a pediatrician is specialty trained to meet your child’s medical needs, Dr. Carson Cruise, a board certified pediatric dentist, is specialty trained to meet your child’s unique oral health needs. Children and teens alike will love our open, inviting office and warm, friendly staff.

By establishing your child’s dental home early, you are keeping your child from a future of dental and oral disease. We focus on prevention, early detection and treatment, and stay current with the latest advances in pediatric dentistry to ensure that we can provide healthy smiles, for life.
