Welcome To West U: Dentini Pediatric Dentistry
Dentini Pediatric Dentistry, a modern and state-of-the-art pediatric dental practice, opened it second location in West U earlier this year. Their team is dedicated to treating and preventing oral health complications in infants, children, and pre-teens. Their office is a clean, friendly, and welcoming place for parents to set the next generation of Houstonians on the path to perfect oral health.
Dentini Pediatric Dentistry was founded in 2018 with the mission to provide a professional and painless dentist experience to children in Houston. With their first location in the Heights, they welcome patients from all over the Houston area. If your child needs preventive, restorative, or orthodontic dental care, please don’t hesitate to contact them, they provide gentle, professional dental services customized for little teeth.
Dentini Pediatric Dentistry was founded by Dr. Elizabeth Briceno, a local resident of Houston who had a dream of creating a fun, friendly, and kind dental practice for kids with a focus on dental education and prevention. Dr. Briceno is a board-certified pediatric dentist with over 10 years of experience treating little patients. She has two kids and a passion for eliminating the fear and anxiety many children associate with visiting the dentist, which can often last a lifetime and lead to poor oral health as adults. Dr. Briceno grew up in Miami, Florida and attended Nova Southeastern University School of Dentistry. She specialized in Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Texas School of Dentistry in Houston and received her Masters in Science of Dentistry in 2012. In order to make Dentini a welcoming place for children of all ages, Dr. Briceno treats every child with the patience, kindness, and compassion that only a mother can provide.
Nearly a native Houstonian, Dr. Jennifer Kong grew up in the Southwest and Central areas of Houston. She is a graduate of Bellaire High School and Rice University and a second-career dental practitioner. Following a career in the energy industry, Dr. Kong completed both her undergraduate dental studies and her pediatric dental residency at the University of Texas at Houston School of Dentistry, where she trained with Dr. Briceno. With two children as well, she believes in providing practical and useful dental recommendations for your family. Dr. Kong is a big proponent of education: she believes that knowledge can help to eliminate the fear of the unknown, and help to empower you as a patient and a parent.
