What is a Pediatric Dentist?
Pediatric dentists specialize in dentistry that is devoted exclusively to children. Pediatric dentistry requires additional years of training in a pediatric residency beyond general dentistry.
Pediatric dentists are trained specifically in growth and development, child psychology, medical complications, and treatment of children with special needs.
Our number one priority is our patient's comfort and well being. We are committed to treating every child in the most caring, gentle way and to provide exceptional dental care in a friendly and pleasant environment.
A Message from Dr. Glasser
To my patients and their families:
It is with a heavy heart that I announce the closing of my dental practice.
My mission these past 45 years has been to provide children with kind and gentle dentistry in a SAFE environment. Though it is possible for dental practices to operate safely during the coronavirus pandemic, I would have to completely rebuild my treatment area to implement the necessary social distancing and air control protocols to keep my patients and staff safe. I am now 74 years of age, and while I had not been planning to retire, the costs involved in rebuilding have made me realize that it is time.
To help my patients transition to another practice, I have been looking into offices that share the same treatment philosophy that I have. When I have referrals for you, I will post them on this web site. For now, I encourage you to contact either your private dental insurance company or the state plan you are with to find a pediatric dentist who is open and accepting patients.
I will update this site with new information as it becomes available, and my office phone line will remain active for the next several months.
I want to thank all of you for allowing me to treat your children and grandchildren all these years. It has been a privilege watching them grow up, graduate from school and in many instances, bring their children to me. I will miss you all very much.
Stay safe, practice social distancing and wear your masks when you go out. Together we can curb the spread of this virus until a vaccine becomes available.
Dr. Paul Glasser
We teach our young patients how to take care of their teeth in a warm, nurturing environment.
We emphasize in an age appropriate manner the importance of good oral hygiene and how to have a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
Dr. Paul Lyle Glasser
Dr. Paul Glasser received his undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and attended Emory University School of Dentistry in Atlanta, Georgia.
Upon completing his dental training, Dr. Glasser became a staff dentist at the Georgia Retardation Center, a state supported facility in Dunwoody, Georgia that provided medical and dental care to handicapped children. It was here that Dr. Glasser realized he wanted to specialize in children's dental care and returned to Emory University for graduate training and was awarded his specialty degree in Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Glasser opened his office on Snapfinger Woods Drive in Decatur and for over 40 years has cared for the children in Decatur and surrounding communities, including Rockdale and Newton counties.
"I offer what I like to characterize as a kinder, more humane approach to Pediatric Dentistry. Every child is unique and as such, deserves an individualized approach to the dental experience. I look forward to welcoming you into our family of patients."
