“I truly hope that each and every parent knows how important and special their children are to me. Pediatric dentistry is MUCH more than a job; it is a privilege. I truly wake up every day and am excited to come to work. Now that I am passing 17 years in practice, I have had the ability to watch my patients grow. My ultimate goal is to treat every child as I would my own children.” — Dr. Solomon
