Pediatric Dentist

Dr. Sara knows the unique needs of kids and serves as a teacher, dental provider, and friend all in one to care for young, growing smiles. She’s committed to continuing education and participates in numerous courses and seminars each year to provide the best quality of care.

Most of all, Dr. Sara cherishes the relationships she forms with our pediatric patients while helping them feel safe and comfortable. A fun fact? Dr. Sara is listed as a top pediatric dentist for 2019 by Connecticut Magazine.

As an endodontist, Dr. Sato aims to save teeth while getting his patients out of pain. He performs comfortable root canals (with the help of sedation dentistry for kids) and promotes better oral and overall health.

Through his gentle approach, patients get through their required treatments without the stress or discomfort often incorrectly associated with root canal procedures. While Dr. Sato is an endodontist at New Haven Kids Dentistry, he’s also in high demand at multiple practices and sees patients on an emergency basis.

Some fun facts? Dr. Sato is listed as a top dentist for 2021 by Connecticut Magazine. He’s fluent in English and Spanish, with a basic knowledge of Japanese. Dr. Sato is married to Dr. Lyly Rodriguez, they have two boys, and he enjoys cooking and traveling in his free time.
