Why Choose Us
Whether your child needs a routine teeth cleaning and exam or more advanced treatments like fillings, crowns, or bonding, it’s easy to set up an appointment. You can request an appointment online anytime. We will contact you to confirm the date and time. New patient forms and other information is also online. You can be paper-free with us! Just set up your login information, review our policies and complete the necessary forms before your appointment.
We use education as a means to promote dental health and prevent cavities. When kids have access to information they can understand, they are more likely to adopt healthy oral hygiene and have great smiles! Rather than be reactive, we prefer to be proactive and stop dental problems before they start. Education is the best way to do that!

About our team
Our motto: Always do what is right and best for the patient. Always do it right the first time. Quality is more important than quantity.
My first exposure to dentistry was in high school. I would occasionally substitute for employees at the office of my girlfriend’s father. In 2001, I returned home to Fort Wayne and purchased Pediatric Dental Associates, PC in 2006. I love the opportunities we have to put a smile on a child’s face, make them laugh, and take an interest in their lives.
Dr. Atz is a born and raised Hoosier graduating from Indiana University School of Dentistry in 2010. After graduation she served in the United States Air Force as a general dentist for 7 years. During her military career, she completed a one-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency and was stationed at Travis AFB, Osan AB, Nellis AFB and Grissom ARB. Following her time in the Air Force, she earned her certificate in pediatric dentistry and masters’ degree from Riley Hospital for Children-Indiana University in 2017. Currently, she is a proud member of the PDA team serving the children and communities of Northern Indiana as a board-certified pediatric dentist. If Dr. Atz is not at the dental office, you will find her and her husband enjoying their small farm, gardening, or taking advantage of the many opportunities Northern Indiana has to offer.
