Pediatric Dentist in Torrington CT Serving all of Litchfield County

Brooker Dental

Brooker Dental’s pediatric dentist practice was established in 1994 as a program of Brooker Memorial. The initial concept for the program and support for it came from The Dr. Isadore Temkin Family. Brooker Dental is the oldest and largest pediatric dentist practice in Litchfield County. We have 3 highly trained dentists who all specialize in Pediatric Dentistry and 4 dental hygienists who are great with children. Our practice has over 9,000 patient visits per year and takes HUSKY Dental Insurance, children with no insurance and submits to all private insurance companies. In addition, we also offer a scholarship program to qualifying families.

The long-term goal of the Pediatric Dental Center is to educate parents and children about good oral health and nutrition, and to instill life-long oral health habits. Good dental habits help to keep your child’s teeth and body healthy for their whole life. Our short-term goal is to introduce children to pediatric dentistry in a non-threatening way, to treat any dental issues they may have, and then to continue providing ongoing preventive pediatric dental care in partnership with each child and his/her parents.

Pediatric Dentistry

What is a Pediatric Dentist and why do I need one for my child?

A pediatric dentist acts as a “pediatrician” in charge of your child’s oral health.  In addition to the normal 4 years of training for a general dentist, a pediatric dentist completes an additional 2-3 years of training to prepare them for the special needs of infants, children and adolescents.  This additional training helps them to better understand early child dental problems such as pacifier use, baby bottle tooth decay, pre-mature tooth loss and routine care of an infant’s teeth.

Nice people, great staff, good service, clean offices, friendly and thorough.

My 5 year old loves going to the dentist. He has always had a great experience with all of the staff! Sharon the hygienist we always have is 100$ made for working with children! She knows how to make it a fun experience and I thank her for that.

I moved from Winsted to Windsor Locks and I still take the almost hour drive for my 3 kids to come to the dentist. We love the staff there they are so amazing.

Friendly Staff… felt comfortable when entering amidst the pandemic. I was unsure how the hygienist was going to thoroughly do their job, but it was reassuring to see how good a job was done.

The staff at Brooker Memorial are absolutely the best The dentist is amazing. He is definitely in the right profession. My daughter is so excited to go to the dentist it's amazing. Brooker Memorial Dental Center is one of the best places to go. The staff treat their patients like family, they are amazing at what they do. I love brining my son here. Truly a great place to go, they were so nice and informative on the phone and just as nice in person. I was very nervous bringing my son because he is only 20 months old and does not do well with doctor visits. They were great and kept it fast but also thorough.

Even though, I had to let him go in alone (per the one person rule, totally understandable), I was able to see him in the window. I’ve always loved taking my kids here and I love that they go to the schools to make the children more comfortable with their dentist and routine cleanings. The hygienist was super friendly as usual and she is wonderful with small kiddos! Also the facility was really clean. Super nice and friendly staff!! Very supportive. My son loves to visit it.
