Email us at
Our doctors and team are dedicated to great dental experiences.
Our doctors, along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend you bring your child in by his or her first birthday.
During your first visit, you will be introduced to our Pediatric Dental Team, given an office tour and discuss your child’s unique smile and ways to keep it beautiful for years to come.
Depending on the age of your child, he or she will either be given a knee-to-knee examination (where your baby’s head will rest on our doctor’s knee while their body is on your lap) or a regular exam in the doctor’s chair.
We request that you complete our First Visit Forms prior to arriving for your appointment. This helps our office keep your and everyone else’ scheduled visit on time.
Remembering the dentist as FUN is an effort from every team member.
Our mission is to provide the infants, children, and teens of our community with preventive, restorative and orthodontic dental care in a gentle, caring, professional environment that sets dental excellence and patient care
as its highest goal.
Our vision is to become an icon for providing excellent pediatric dental care and to develop into a pillar of
respect and support for our community.
All our doctors are pediatric dentists,
they specialize in the treatment and prevention of dental disease, as well as the overall oral health of children. Through extra years of schooling, training, experience, and certification, a pediatric dentist is uniquely qualified to treat the dental needs of infants, children, adolescents, teens as well as those with special healthcare needs.
Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?
A pediatric patient not only has a different dentition than adults but he/she may have specific dental and behavioral needs that are unique to a child. These needs may include orthodontics, sealants, fluoride applications or home treatments, or just simply education in oral hygiene.
In addition to treating existing dental problems, our
office focuses on prevention through patient and
We like to feel that you and your child do not come to our office to have their “cavities fixed” but rather to prevent them. We strive to provide all of the educational tools necessary for our patients to enjoy a cavity-free future.
Learn about our kids dental specialty:
defining tongue-tie & lip-tie
Most of us think of tongue-tie as a situation we find ourselves in when we are too excited to speak. Actually, tongue-tie is the non-medical term for ankyloglossia, a relatively common physical condition that limits the use of the tongue. Similarly, lip-tie is a condition where the upper lip has restricted mobility and function.
As we develop in the womb, a tight string of tissue called a frenum, located under the tongue and lip, is supposed to recede and become thinner. It is easily visible and felt when using a mirror. Everyone has a frenum, but in some people the frenum fails to recede and is too tight, thick or short and causes mobility problems.
The tongue and lip are a very complex group of muscles and are important for all oral functions. For this reason, having a tongue-tie can lead to many issues with nursing, bottle feeding, dental, speech, sleep, solid feeding and so much more.

“My daughter had a pretty rough dentist experience in the past. Once she was seen by Dr. Shisler she now feels safe and certain she will be taken care of. In addition my son (being younger) is a little terrified of dentists however Dr Shisler was patient and let him know everything was going to be ok! Thank you much!”
– Karla G
“I have been taking my kids to Dr. Cammarata for several years.
This office is very well run. I have never had to wait more than 3 minutes after arriving to be called back and the only a few minutes more before the kids are in the chairs. They are able to schedule both kids at the same time. I have never had a billing problem. Cleanings and fillings are done with amazing speed.
The environment is totally kid friendly. There is a place to play video games in the waiting room and another area for books and toys. The kids get to watch Disney movies while their teeth are worked upon. As my kids say, this is as good as dental offices can get.
I pay out of pocket so I can attest to the fact that pricing is very fair even though the office is so new/clean/pretty that you expect to be overcharged.”

“Very good experience yesterday when our 8-year old son Merce had a tooth pulled. Excellent job by the staff.”
– Daragh C
“We were overjoyed with our visit to Dr. Cammarata's office. This was our son's first visit to a dentist, and we are grateful that it was so positive, welcoming, and child-focused. From the time we walked in, we were warmly welcomed by Jocelyn. Amanda the hygienist was fabulous with our 2 year old. We were wondering how they would get him to cooperate, but it was apparent that the staff members are well-trained and that they understand children. Finally, Dr. Cammarata gets accolades from us! She was thorough, kind, and professional.”
– T Herbert
“Hands down the best Children's Pediatric Dental office in Houston, TX. Numerous kids and many appointments later we can confirm each visit has been minimal wait times. The staff are very diligent and friendly and of course Dr. Rita Cammarata is a true professional who is very kind and considerate. The office is always busy which in itself is a testament to its success.”
– Austin H
“I took my four year old son here this morning and was SO PLEASED with the service. The dental hygienist, Theresa, was so sweet and took a lot of time making my son feel comfortable with the process. Dr. Cammarata was great too. I highly recommend this place!”
– Marcille B
“This is a GREAT pediatric dentist! I've been bringing my son to Dr. Cammarata for several years now and this place is light years beyond the places I grew up going to.
The people are all great, kid-liking people. Dr. C is great with kids and her entire staff is amazing at managing tons of kids throughout the day. We've had cavities even filled here without issue, which isn't even possible for me to get through myself (baby that I am...)
The facility is really cool. Awesome lobby that kids are into, they bring kids right back to two playrooms (a kiddie one and now one with four different video game systems). You go back and forth to play from one procedure to another, cleaning, x-ray, and finally Dr. C. No awkward waiting in between because you just get to play, prizes for getting through and movies and sunglasses during the procedures. Too bad they don't take grown-ups....”
– Joe B
“My child has been a patient of Dr. Cammarata for 3 years now, and I tell you she's one fantastic, professional, patient, Doctor! I don't think l could have chosen a better dentist office to care for my child's teeth.
This dentist office is fully staffed with professional hygienists whom love kids and most importantly their job.
The staff are fully licensed and trained extensively! You won't be disappointed l can honestly say. What more can you ask for? "A kid-friendly office" , "professional staff", "extremely clean office", "Game room", and last but not least, Dr. Cammarata who sits bedside and exams your kid mouth thoroughly. I mean thoroughly!!!!!
You cannot go wrong with this office! I am Cammarata spoiled! She and her Crew ROCKS!.”
– Cowada H
“My daughter is SUPER apprehensive which is why her last treatment at another Pediatric Dentistry didn't go well at all. She left the place crying and saying she never wanted to return. I began to search for a new pediatric dentist and through a referral found Cammarata. OMG!! I was not used to being treated so well. From the front desk to the entire staff everyone is so professional, friendly welcoming and eager to please. The office is very kid friendly. They made my daughter feel like a princess and listened to her talk which she did because she felt at ease. She had treatment today and I left amazed at the great teamwork Dr. Taylor and Vilma presented. She was able to watch the movie Frozen during her treatment. Dr. Taylor continuously asked her if she was ok and ensured she was doing ok throughout. My daughter did awesome thanks to Dr. Taylor and Vilma her assistant. Before we left my daughter was alert and happy. Few hours after we left the office called to check in and see how my daughter was doing. This office really steps up their game. I was totally not expecting that. Everything is well explained and allows you to ask any questions you might have. Also, I was able to sit in with my daughter which was not allowed at the other pediatric dentist. The experience was totally opposite to what happened at the previous dentist office. I am super happy to have found my kids new dentist!!!!”
