Aleco E. Tujios, DDS, MS


“Oral health means more than just having a healthy-looking smile. Oral health is deeply integral to a person’s general health and begins with the education and oral hygiene habits that are established at an early age. It is important for all families to have a “dental home”, a place where dental professionals can interact with children and parents alike, to identify and reinforce the aspects of proper oral health through appropriate and routine preventative care.

I became a pediatric dentist to provide a high level of care to our families while at the same time maintaining a comfortable and entertaining environment that makes it fun for our patients to keep coming back to see us. Pediatric dentistry has changed considerably in the last 20 years, so staying on the cutting edge of current techniques and developments in my field allows me to provide state of the art, esthetic and functional care to our patients, making each visit as easy and comfortable as possible.”
