What Makes Us Different


We started our practice with the goal of being accessible to the community we serve. We strongly believe that dentistry should be for everyone and all our patients should get to enjoy high-quality dentistry in caring hands. Our approach is gentle, kind and compassionate. Parents are encouraged to be with their child throughout all appointments, and we offer different treatment approaches tailored to the individual needs of your child. We are a full-service dental office that serves children, offering treatment with nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”), sedation (done in office for fearful or apprehensive patients), and hospital dentistry (performed at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital). Moreover, we are open six days a week, offering patients evening, morning and Saturday appointments. We are also one of the few pediatric dental offices in Broward and Dade County to accept most dental insurances, including PPO, HMO and Florida Kid Care. Our goal is for every child (and parent) to have a positive impression of going to the dentist, and our office and dental team is committed to fulfilling this goal!

Finding a dentist that takes good care of your child’s teeth, while making the experience relaxed and fun, sets the stage for a lifetime of healthy teeth. Our office is kid-friendly, with televisions over every chair, video games in the reception, and aromatherapy throughout the office to provide a “spa-like” experience for both parents and children. More importantly, our staff is trained in the latest safety protocols and are committed to make your child’s experience a memorable one! We invite you to come to one of our convenient, state-of-the-art facilities in Coral Springs, Pembroke Pines, Plantation, Kendall, or Doral. We are confident you will love the experience!

What Our Patients Say about American Pediatric Dental Group

“I came to this office for a second opinion, and it was the best decision I ever made. I LOVE this place! Very kid-friendly. The doctors and staff are extremely professional; they explain everything to you. The doctors are pleasant; they answer all your questions, they don't rush you, and the facility is clean and in a convenient location.”
-Alexis G.

“My husband and I were so nervous! Wow! The doctors and staff know what family-centered care is all about. Kind, caring and knowledgeable, are some of the words that can be used to describe our experience. We are scheduled to return in a couple of weeks with our 4-year-old daughter, and we know it will be another great experience for her. Thank you!!”
-Isabelle H.

“This was truly an amazing experience for myself, and my 4-and 5-year-olds! As a dental hygienist, I am very picky. I drove from Parkland to see the best! I loved Dr. Pena and all his staff and the technology in this office. They were very warm, patient and very caring with my children. Truly the way I would want to be treated and know patients should be treated; with highest of standards. This pediatric office rules!!!”

“I am very pleased with the services rendered. My children are also pleased. It is wonderful that you are open on Saturdays which is what drew me at first, but to also have good service is what’s going to keep me coming. Your staff is very professional and extremely helpful. I couldn't be happier.”
