Pediatric Dentistry

Our dental care experts are always ready to provide top-quality treatments for children and teens. We know how important it is to provide younger patients with positive dental foundations that will continue to benefit them later in life. By starting early, a child is less likely to require more extensive dental procedures as they grow older. Whenever your child visits our practice, you can be sure that they will receive the best possible treatment.

The First Visit

A child’s first dental visit is an important milestone for both the child and the parents. Children should receive their first dental visit sometime before their first birthday. Scheduling a dental appointment at this early age helps young children become familiar with the process, and it creates a foundation of comfort and trust that will carry over to future visits.

During the first visit, our experts will examine your child’s gums and first few teeth in order to make sure that everything is developing as it should. Parents are encouraged to ask any questions they have about their child’s oral health so that we can clear up any doubts or concerns that they might have. Our experts also like to use this opportunity to provide parents with important information regarding teething, cavity prevention, brushing and flossing practices, thumb sucking and more.

Kid’s Complete Checkups

Just like adults, children should visit us twice every year for a complete dental checkup. These routine checkups allow our experts to keep track of your child’s oral health and to provide timely treatment if any important issues are discovered. Pediatric checkups include a professional teeth cleaning, digital X-rays when needed, and an oral cancer screening. We also use these visits as a chance to offer parents helpful information on how to care for their child’s teeth.

Preventive Treatments

Preventive treatments are used to help children avoid the need for more intensive procedures later in life. Since preventive treatments can save a tremendous amount of time and hassle in the future, they are usually recommended whenever possible. Some of the most popular preventive treatments offered at our practice include dental sealants, fluoride applications and mouth guards for children who play contact sports.


Throughout your child’s younger years, they will most likely place a particularly high value on the appearance of their teeth. Our team takes great pride in providing outstanding restorations for children that will help their teeth appear good as new. Whether your child needs a filling, dental crown, bridgework or veneers, our experts are ready to help restore the look of their smile so that they have the confidence they need to face the world.

Emergency Dentistry

With the active lifestyles that children and teens often enjoy, it’s no wonder that many dental emergencies affect younger people. While we certainly hope that your child never requires emergency dental treatments, our experts are always ready to help if necessary. Our team will do everything possible to help your child remain calm and comfortable during this potentially scary event, and we will be sure to provide them with the best treatment possible.
