About Watertown Pediatric Dentistry
Watertown NY’s Best Pediatric Dentist
At Watertown Pediatric Dentistry in Watertown, NY our team provides children with the best dental care in the area. We focus on general and preventative dentistry, while educating children on the correct ways of brushing and flossing. Dr. Andrew Beuttenmuller, or Dr. Andrew for short, wanted to start a practice in an underserved area, and Watertown, NY was the perfect place. There had not been a pediatric dentist is the area for 20 years, and families would have to drive upwards to four hours to the nearest pediatric dentist.
In August 2011, Dr. Andrew started the practice in his father’s oral surgeon’s office with only two small operatories. In March 2013, they moved into our current home, which includes four hygiene rooms, two operatories, and orthodontics. We have a fun train theme throughout the office, and we have monitors with a variety of movies that patients can watch while our team performs orthodontic and dental services such as dental sealants, fluoride treatments, and more!
