It All Boils Down To Compassionate Care

From the first time you step into our well-equipped facility, you will realize that Waterside Dental in Sarasota, FL, is truly all about you. Our comprehensive practice has been designed with you and your family in mind. Not only can you receive all your dental care in one convenient location, but we can help you maintain optimal oral health for a lifetime.

Take Time Today to Avoid Issues Tomorrow

Why risk future dental issues, or overlook oral concerns when you can take control of them? Spending a little time now to resolve concerns can save time – and money – later. Now is the best opportunity to form a lasting relationship with an award-winning dentist who has practiced for more than 30 years. Whether you need a dentist for yourself or the whole family, Dr. Childers is ready to share his expertise.


Beautiful Smiles Start With Your First Visit

When we meet you for the first time, our goal is always to form a thorough understanding of your current dental health and wellness. To achieve this objective, we will perform a complete examination, which includes:

  • Oral Cancer Screening

    We use the latest non-invasive methods to search for pre-cancerous and cancerous cells in your mouth, since oral cancers may not show any visible symptoms in their earliest stages. Finding it early improves your likelihood of remission and recovery, as Dr. Childers, a Diplomate of Academy of Oral Pathology, knows.
  • Digital X-Rays

    Our low-radiation digital x-ray machine allows us to capture a clearer picture of what is happening to your soft and hard tissues. Unless you have very recent images from another medical provider, we usually take x-rays during the initial appointment.
  • Dental Check-Up and Cleaning

    We will completely evaluate and clean your teeth at your appointment. Please let us know if you have any known conditions or dental fears so we can make your experience more pleasant and relaxing.
  • Customized Dental Plan

    A discussion at your first visit with Dr. Childers will end with a customized dental plan recommendation. This plan is personalized to fit your needs, and may include further interventions outside of routine six-month check-ups, such as periodontal disease cleanings.

Your Experience Is Our #1 Priority
