At A Safari Dental, we know good dental habits begin early in life, which is why we give so much special attention to our patients. Our pediatric dental practice is led by Dr. Brandon Larkin, Dr. Lexie Bellows, and Dr. Kaitlyn Purcell, who are all board certified pediatric dentists. Our practice welcomes patients from birth up until early adulthood, and it’s the experience we give patients that keeps them coming back year after year. Our office features the latest advancements in healthcare technology, including digital X-rays, and we are a completely paperless office.
We accept all PPO and some HMO dental insurance plans. We are continually adding new insurance plans to be able to offer the best care and service for the best price possible. We always allow parents to come back with their children during routine dental procedures, ensuring both patient and parent are comfortable during their dental experience.
The Safari Dental staff also strives to create an office atmosphere that is warm and welcoming to young patients. Our team takes extra care and effort to give all children a positive, comfortable experience. All our dentists are Board Certified Pediatric dentists by The American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Our New Port Richey / Trinity office is fully prepared with all the training and skills needed to help young patients feel at ease while in our office. A Safari Dental’s knowledgeable team is also always ready to answer any questions patients or their parents may have. We place a priority on educating all our patients and parents about good oral health care practices.

A Safari Dental provides comprehensive pediatric dental services. In addition to initial examinations and routine check-ups, we conduct fluoride treatments and screenings for all dental diseases. We can also provide custom mouth guards to protect against sports injuries, and use easy-application sealants that do not require the use of any numbing agents for a fast and comfortable procedure. Should your child have a cavity or be in need of any other restorative procedure, we’re able to provide fillings, crowns, space maintainers, and pulpotomy procedures. We also offer a variety of sedation dentistry options, including nitrous oxide, and even IV sedation anesthesia for patients who require full sedation. Our goal is to provide our young patients with the best preventative and restorative oral health care possible while ensuring their comfort is never compromised.

He continues to maintain multiple hours of continuing education on an annual basis and attends educational meetings yearly to stay up to date on the lastest technology available in the orthodontic field.
