We are a mother-daughter team of pediatric dentists with both a love for children, as well as additional dental training and experience with infants, children and teens. For more than 25 years, our pediatric dental office has provided care to children of all ages. By only hiring people with the same love and commitment to children, we are known as a place where our patients feel secure, relaxed and comfortable. We pride ourselves on providing a positive dental experience and placing an emphasis on prevention.
Both of us hold degrees in pediatric dentistry and specialty certification in pediatric dentistry from the University of Connecticut (UCONN). Dr. Cipes also holds a master’s degree in dental science from UCONN’s Department of Behavioral Sciences.
We believe every infant, child and teenager deserves a healthy, beautiful smile and are committed to providing the best possible care in a friendly, caring and fun environment. Your pre-schooler will benefit from our caring and experienced approach to dentistry, yet your teenager will feel at home around other young adults. And, if your child is especially anxious or medically compromised, we apply the highest standards of skill and concern for patients with special needs.
At Cipes Pediatric Dentistry, we have decades of experience serving young people with special needs, including children with autism. See more about our special services under Our Office section.
Doctors Cipes, Chisholm and staff are involved in many community outreach efforts. In addition to having dental assisting and dental students rotate through their office, they teach and lecture. Dr. Cipes is a faculty member of UCONN School of Dental Medicine, where she lectures on many topics, particularly reducing anxiety in young dental patients. Dr. Chisholm also lectures at UCONN School of Dental Medicine on dental treatment for children with autism.

We all FISH! here, every day! We at Cipes Pediatric Dentistry believe that the more positive our work culture, the more positive our patient experiences. To keep our energy and enthusiasm high, our entire workforce — clinical and administrative — follow the ChartHouse Learning, copyrighted FISH! Philosophy. The philosophy is based on an enormously positive and popular customer service outlook used at a major fish market in Seattle — thus the FISH! name. The philosophy uses a set of simple, practical tools to help create a positive working culture.
Every day we FISH! according
to four FISH! guidelines:
• Make their day
• Be there
• Choose your attitude
