About Us

Dr. Carla Lalande - Pediatric Dentist in Las Vegas, NV

Dr. Carla Lalande - Owner

Board Certified Pediatric Dentist

I am very passionate about prevention; the more issues and diseases that can be prevented, the better! I enjoy teaching children and parents about dental health, and the role it plays in overall wellness. This helps them to develop good home dental hygiene habits, make healthy eating decisions, and to care about their health.

As a mother, I understand a parent’s concerns and always respect your wishes. I also know how to connect with children on their level, in a way that helps them feel at ease and even excited about seeing the dentist.

I feel so blessed to come to work every day and help my patients: I treat them like I would treat my own children. There is nothing more rewarding than earning children’s trust and having them give me a big hug at the end of an appointment, saying they can’t wait to come see me again!
