Hanover Pediatric Dentistry

Pediatric Dentistry in Hanover, MA

Hanover Pediatric Dentistry provides a “dental home” for your child, a place where oral health care is delivered in a comprehensive, accessible, and family-centered way. This relationship gives your child the best chance for optimal oral health. Our approach to dentistry focuses on prevention and education. We also focus on educating ourselves on the most current dental techniques and offer modern solutions when dental treatment is beneficial. With specialized pediatric dental training, we are a dental office designed just for kids — serving infants, children, and teens, as well as children with special dental health needs.

Why a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric dentists have 2-3 years of additional, specialized training to care for young children and adolescents. From the first tooth to adolescence, we help your child develop a healthy smile and manage situations that are unique only to children.

Our office is designed to ease nervous children (and their parents!) with a kid-friendly atmosphere. We take extra time to understand the personality of each child and our team works hard to accommodate every personality – from super chatty to super shy. Hanover Pediatric Dentistry is also able to help with child-specific issues such as thumb sucking, pacifier use, and feeding concerns. We’re kid experts! Learn more about what makes us unique.

Meet Dr. Groff

Dr. Tara Groff is a Massachusetts native, born and raised in Dedham. Life has taken her to several places, including Baltimore, MD, where she earned her undergraduate degree, Tufts University in Boston, where she received her Doctor of Dental Medicine, and a stop in the United States Air Force, where she served as a general dentist and earned the rank of Captain.

Dr. Groff’s love of children’s dentistry is what led her to Ann Arbor, MI. There she completed her Master of Science in Pediatric Dentistry.

What Our Patients Say

Awesome pediatric dentist office in Hanover. I appreciate how they did a great job with not only the exam but explained everything and able to really calm my daughter. I definitely recommend and enjoy the friendly staff and Dentist herself. Thank you again from very satisfied parents.

Chanel A.

Very caring staff from the front door through cleanings and even through more complicated procedures. Able to calm down anxious kids and adults. No judgment, very welcoming with no shame. The work is done efficiently and calmly while they explain everything to the patient and answer any questions caregivers may have. Would recommend to any family!

Mellisa B.

The best dental experience my children have ever had. It was calm and kind and the boys left feeling enthusiastic about their oral health rather than stressed. It feels good to bring them some where that eases their anxiety rather than increases it.
