Pediatric Dentist Jacksonville

Meet Dr. Gerald Weaver

Pediatric Dentist Dr. WeaverAs a pediatric dentist in Jacksonville, it is privilege that parents trust us with the dental care of their children, and we never take that for granted. Our children's dental practice offers everything to keep your kids teeth healthy from teeth cleanings to kid's braces. It is very rewarding to see children turn their dental health and attitude toward dentistry from negative to positive. One of my greatest joys has been to treat the children of my former dental patients.

Education

Prior to becoming a Pediatric Dentist, I attained my Bachelor of Science Degree as well as my Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of Florida. I then went on to complete my Pediatric Dental Residency at the Children's Medical Center of Dayton, Ohio.

Continuing Education

When I provide care for a child, I know that I am also providing peace of mind for their parents. In order to always give our patients the highest quality care with the utmost comfort, I must always have knowledge of the latest developments in my field. All of our dentists take frequent continuing education courses in pediatric dentistry, orthodontics and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS).

In addition to these courses, I am also an active member of the following organizations:

  • American Dental Association
  • Florida Dental Association
  • Northeast District Dental Association
  • Clay County Dental Society
  • American Society of Dentistry for Children
  • American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
  • Southeastern Society of Pediatric Dentistry

In the Office

Children are honest, curious, and eager to learn. After more than 30 years as a pediatric dentist Jacksonville and Orange Park, the kids I serve still keep me on my toes! They are full of surprises and require me to be upbeat and positive when it comes to being the best dentist for children. The children that come to me as their pediatric dentist can tell how much we all care about them. We get a lot of thank you pictures, notes and high fives for being a great dental office that kids and parents love.

I love spending my days with children and enjoy working with caring individuals who also love spending time with kids. I really feel that we make a difference in the lives of our patients, and I know they make a difference in ours. I love being able to inform and educate their families to help them have a healthier life. We provide everything you need to know from dental care for your baby to the ins-and-outs of getting braces. As a dentist, I know it is important for parents and kids to know the FAQs about pediatric dental treatment and their first visit.

I feel really good being a pediatric dentist and providing children a state of the art dental facility that is safe, clean, and OSHA and HIPAA compliant. We have a cheerful office with a dental staff full of caring people. The decor is pleasant, but without a doubt, the children most like that each dental chair has its own TV in the ceiling. Children can pick their own TV show and listen with headphones. We all get along great and have a common mission: we want to provide the best dental experience for the children.

Family Life

My wife and I have been a part of the First Coast community since 1981. We have three sons, five grandchildren, and three dogs. In my spare time, I love spending time with my grandkids. When I’m not visiting them, I’m usually playing golf, fishing, reading, or following Florida Gator sports and the Tampa Bay Rays!
