Berkshire Pediatric Dentistry is a fun, state of the art, positive environment. It’s a great feeling when a child walks into our office and says, "This is the coolest dental office ever." However, nothing gives greater satisfaction than when a child leaves with a smile on their face.
Part of our gentle approach includes creating a comfortable and fun environment for children. Our team is committed to family-oriented dental care and we encourage parents to play an active role in their child's oral health.
Our Mission… is to provide specialized and comprehensive dental and orthodontic care for infants, children, and patients with special needs in a friendly and safe environment with a focus on prevention and education for families.
Lisa Gamache DMD - Pediatric Dentist

Our brand new office is equipped with the latest state of the art technology, including digital x-rays and computer imaging. Our staff has extra training and experience in dealing with children, everyone is aware that the visit is supposed to be as fun and comfortable as possible.  
The First Year of Life
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends your child's first visit to the dentist should be scheduled by the first birthday. Don't wait until there is a problem!
Why So Early?
Your child's visits should begin early for more than one reason: Many baby teeth remain until eleven or twelve years of age.
Baby teeth can quickly decay due to baby bottle syndrome. Often cavities form on the backside of the upper front teeth. The cavities are not visible by most parents until the decay spreads. Your pediatric dentist can suggest ways to avoid the problem. He can also spot problems early before they get out of hand.
Good preventive habits begin early
Establishing a relationship with a pediatric dentist early helps if there is an accident and you are looking for emergency treatment.
Some issues you may face in the first year of life
Early habits such as pacifier sucking are ok unless they continue too long or are done in excess.
It is recommended that bottle-feeding be discontinued at around 12 months of age. Leaving juice or milk in a bottle at naptime or bedtime is especially dangerous. If your child needs a bottle as a pacifier, place only water in the bottle.
You must begin cleaning the child's teeth as soon as they appear.
Your child's first tooth will likely appear around 6 months of age, give or take a few months.
Proper diet and fluoride considerations should be evaluated early to provide optimum intake of fluoride and nutrients for your child's developing teeth.
