We Now Offer Sterile Ear Piercing Using Lab-Tested, Hypoallergenic, Packaged & Sealed Earring Studs

Our office offers ear piercing by a doctor to patients in a manner superior to that obtained in most commerical locations. The ear piercings we provide are:

• Performed in a sterile manner (numbing offered as well)
• Ear studs placed are hypoallergenic
• Ear piercing system used has been laboratory tested, packaged, and sealed
• Hypoallergenic studs and clasps are individually sealed with disposable earpiercer - avoiding any concern of cross contamination

Better yet, we can perform this procedure at the same time as ear tube placement as well as any other surgical procedures including tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy! If your child is going to be under anesthesia, what better time to place earrings as well! Obviously, this can be done at any age.

If awake, we do offer EMLA numbing cream prior to piercing (which reduces the pain by about 50%). Awake ear piercing is available starting from 8 years and older.
