Meet Dr. Rachael Revell

Oral health is the foundation for total body health. Pediatric dentistry helps establish this foundation, which lasts for a lifetime.
As a pediatric dentist, I know each patient and their family present an opportunity to truly change the health and esthetics of that child for life. To me, there are few greater honors or responsibilities than setting a young person on the path to a lifetime of having a healthy smile.
I hope each of our patients grows up knowing they were cared for and respected here, and that this translates into a healthy attitude about oral health and overall health in their lives as adults. Establishing the foundation for taking care of your body begins early. I hope to empower children to take an active role in their health decisions and to prioritize caring for themselves for the many years to come.
