Our Story

The Kids First Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics Story

Once upon a time, around the year 1973, a young man named Dr. Gery Habansky decided to open a dental practice that focused exclusively on the needs of children and adolescents.

He believed that children weren’t just little adults, and that their dental needs required a focus on early instillation of prevention techniques and alleviating anxiety and pain.

He spent three decades educating parents and doctors alike, and along the way, found other doctors who shared his beliefs and love of treating children and young adults. Through the years, we have grown from a single doctor practice to a multi-doctor practice.

We have stayed true to our roots, and like our mentor, we have found our joy in treating pediatric patients in a small town, community setting. As parents ourselves, we know how hard it is to watch your child go through a stressful or difficult experience. That’s exactly why we believe first and foremost in prevention, and prefer not to do fillings!

However, if your child does need a filling or dental work, we are committed to helping them through the experience with confidence, care, support and dignity. We achieve this by surrounding ourselves with the area’s best dental staff, who love what they do as much as we do.

Every day, your children drive us to be better. But like the old lady in the shoe who didn’t know what to do, we have run out of space too!

Our Post Road, Fairfield location is still going strong after 44 years, but we recognized that there are so many more children we can reach with additional locations. That’s why we’re thrilled to share that we have recently opened a second office on Westport Avenue in Norwalk, and a third on Elm Street in Monroe!

Our Norwalk location allows children living south of Fairfield to visit us, and is proving to be a great convenience to Westport residents.

The Norwalk location features pediatric dentistry, an orthodontic office, and an anesthesia suite for those patients who require sedation dentistry.

Our Monroe location was opened over 30 years ago by Dr. Dave Knaus, who believes in educating patients and parents, and loves providing pediatric dental and orthodontic care to children and young adults.

We can’t wait to write our next chapter along with you! Now that you know a little about why we do what we do, come by and see how we do it! Call our office today to schedule your child’s next dental visit.
