About Us

At A Safari Dental, we know good dental habits begin early in life, which is why we give so much special attention to our young patients. Our pediatric dentistry practice, led by Dr. Frank Pettinato II, a renowned pediatric dentist in Florida, welcomes patients from birth up until early adulthood, and it's the experience we give patients that keeps them coming back year after year. Our office features the latest advancements in healthcare technology, including digital X-rays and a completely paperless office.

We accept nearly every dental insurance plan and offer dental services to our patients that are unavailable at other pediatric dentistry offices. We allow parents to come back with their children during procedures, ensuring both patient and parent are comfortable during the dentistry process.

The A Safari Dental staff also strives to create an office atmosphere that is warm and welcoming to young patients. Our team takes care to afford children a positive, comfortable experience, and as a Board Certified Pediatric dentist, our New Port Richey dentist Dr. Frank is equipped with the training and skills needed to help young patients feel at ease while in the office. A Safari Dental's knowledgeable team is also always ready to answer any question patients or their parents may have, and prioritizes educating children about good oral health care practices.

Dental Services

A Safari Dental provides comprehensive pediatric dental services. In addition to initial examinations and routine check-ups, we conduct fluoride treatments and screenings for dental diseases. We can also provide custom mouth guards to protect against sports injuries, and use easy-application sealants that do not require the use of any numbing agents for an expedient and comfortable procedure. Should your child have a cavity or be in need of any other restorative procedure, we're able to provide fillings, crowns, space maintainers, and pulpotomy procedures. We also offer a variety of sedation dentistry options, including nitrous oxide, oral sedation, and even general anesthesia for patients who require full sedation. Our goal is to provide our young patients with the best preventative and restorative oral health care possible, while ensuring comfort is never compromised.

Orthodontic Services

Aside from the general pediatric dentistry procedures we offer at our location, A Safari Dental offers orthodontic procedures such as braces to our patients. Dr. Frank maintains extensive training in orthodontics and has successfully provided braces to patients for over 14 years. Dr. Frank understands the importance of orthodontic procedures to oral health, jaw alignment, and healthy smiles, and continues to provide exceptional orthodontic care to each and every patient. What's more, at A Safari Dental, orthodontic consultations are completely free of charge.
