Marcantonio Dentistry is the only sole pediatric dentist in the area. They provide care for infants, toddlers, adolescents and special needs patients. A husband and wife team, Dr. Catherine and Dr. Michael Marcantonio, both natives of Pensacola, have been a success since opening the dentistry in November 2008. 


Marcantonio Dentistry focuses on creating a positive environment for each child when they go in for a cleaning.  The dentistry utilizes the tell-show-do procedure, which office manager Kelly Daugherty says helps calm anxious children. “We make sure to tell the child what is going to happen in the best way for them to understand,” she says. “We take each step very slowly and show the child each object and instrument we will use.” This philosophy can help anxious children overcome fears of going to the dentist. 


Another focus is on dental prevention through family education and early treatment. Dr. Cathy Marcantonio requests that parents accompany their children during their initial visit. This introduces parents to the environment, allows Dr. Cathy to discuss her dental findings, and provides parents with a general idea of the office's philosophy.
