Robin Lents, DDS
Being a pediatric dentist means taking care of the little children. At the end of the day, my goal is to have treated each patient with love and respect, and to ensure your child has had a positive dental experience.
As the years have gone by, my love for the specialty has only deepened. I absolutely love the opportunity to meet and care for infants, children, adolescents, and children with special needs.
When working with young patients, you never know how they will act or what they will say, which can add a lot of excitement to the day! This excitement brings out the love I have for my patients.
As a mother, I understand a parent’s concerns and focus on creating open communication. I never recommend a treatment or procedure I would not want for my own child and always explain my recommendations, as well as the range of options.
In working closely with parents and each child, I know we can achieve a lifetime of incredible smiles and enthusiasm for keeping your son or daughter healthy for life!

Beyond the Office
I grew up in Newbern, Tennessee, and have lived in Florence for more than 15 years. My husband, Dr. Rob Embry, is a general dentist who practices in Florence. We have three wonderful children: Ella, William, and Lila, who keep us busy with their many sports interests and other extracurricular activities.
When our schedule allows, we love summer lake life on the water, and always enjoy time with our church family at St. James United Methodist Church.
