Pediatric Dentistry

Dr. Betar has provided pediatric dental services to children throughout Blair County for over 17 years.

Dr. Betar is a member of the UPMC Altoona Medical Staff in the Department of Specialized Surgery, Clinical Service of Dentistry. This enables Dr. Betar to provide dental services to those children, requiring extensive dental therapy, under general anesthesia at the UPMC Altoona Outpatient Surgery Center.

Dr Betar is performing approximately 35-40 complete oral rehabilitations a month on children ages 2-18.  This allows him to complete the child's entire case in one visit rather than several appointments.

He has recently replaced the STAINLESS STEEL or SILVER CROWN with a NEW WHITE CROWN that more closely resembles natural tooth color. This new therapy, for anterior teeth, will remove the negative visible aspect associated with the stainless steel crown.

    Excellent dental practice. They are caring and professional. Betar dental attends to every detail and makes each patient feel like they are the only patient in the office!

    I love Betar Dental. The technicians and doctors are compassionate and understanding I suffer a great deal of anxiety when seeing the dentist. They all tell me what they are doing and give me frequent breaks. I highly recommend.

    Very thorough, patient and qualified.


    Staff & Dentist were great! My son fell on the playground and I was concerned about his teeth. They examined him and addressed my concerns without hesitation.

    They are fantastic with kids here. If you have a young first time patient or maybe a child who is a bit nervous? This will put them right at ease.
