Establishing a Lifetime of Bright, Healthy Smiles, One Child at a Time
A child’s early experiences can make a strong impression, and those lingering feelings can last far into adulthood. When a little one experiences only kindness and positive things, he or she feels safe and that translates to comfort and trust.
At Crystal Lake Pediatric Dental, we understand how important those early dental visits are for the long-term health and happiness of our young patients. That is why Dr. Anthony Minutillo and our team take all the time needed to ensure children are at ease in our hands: treating each with patience, warmth and compassion — just as we would our own little ones.
We have served growing families from Crystal Lake and surrounding communities since 1995, and built a reputation for offering high-quality, comfortable care in a child-friendly atmosphere. Now we are honored to be caring for the growing smiles of a second generation of local families!
Our Doctor: Dr. Minutillo is a board-certified pediatric dentist who holds a certificate and Master of Science in dentistry in pediatric dentistry. His post-dental school training and ongoing continuing education ensure he provides every patient with proven, leading-edge dental care.
Beyond his clinical knowledge, Dr. Minutillo has a great love and appreciation for working with youth. He enjoys getting to know each child and communicates in a warm and non-threatening manner. With a gentle approach, patience, and empathy, he creates a secure environment, where children relax and feel at home.
Our Team: Our clinical and customer service team members have extensive experience in pediatric dentistry. Each is also positive, calm, and welcoming. Whether they are helping an anxious child relax, sharing a lesson in how to brush and floss, or assisting a parent with an insurance matter, our staff is always accommodating. We want young patients to enjoy their time with us and for parents to be confident their family is receiving the best care.
Our Focus: Dr. Minutillo and our team know that patient and parent education is critical to helping smiles grow healthy and strong. We excel at teaching proper home dental hygiene, as well as providing nutritional and behavioral guidance, and offer lots of praise and positive reinforcement.
We all want the best for our patients: fully enjoyed and successful lives, and bright, healthy, and happy smiles!
