Children are a gift from the Lord. Every child deserves to be given my best. A lifetime of good teeth and oral health begins with proper education, home care, parental involvement, and pleasant visits with their pediatric dentist. It is my goal to provide parents with the knowledge and tools to help their children enjoy a lifetime of cavity-free teeth. Our team will do our best to make every visit as reasonably pleasant as possible.

Personal Favorites

Dr. Ayre enjoys books by Clive Cussler and Dan Brown (and secretly desires to be a James Bond-like special agent). He is a huge fan of movies, especially sci-fi and classics like Casablanca, Lawrence of Arabia, and The Sting. His favorite places to go to on vacation are places with beaches, palm trees, and plumeria fragrance.
