Your dental health is important, and our patients’ safety is our top priority. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation and all CDC guidelines very closely.
Having a great experience with kid’s dentists is the first step toward a lifetime of good dental health and a happy, healthy smile for your child. We treat our patients with consideration and respect. Our team will do our best to ensure that your child’s visit here is as pleasant as possible for both parent and child.
What is a Pediatric Dentist?
A pediatric dentist is an ADA recognized specialist who has completed additional training after graduating dental school in order to provide comprehensive care to children from one year old up to age 18. With their hospital training, our pediatric dental specialists can handle children with special needs and emergencies that a pediatric oral surgeon would usually see. Our pediatric dentists work closely with pediatricians and family dentists who refer young patients with complex dental problems to us. While family dentists often treat children, our pediatric specialists cater specifically to children and have expertise with dental health issues unique to children.
Why Should Should I Take My Child to a Children’s Dentist?
Children’s dentists have special training, beyond that of a family dentist, in putting children at ease. Consider the cost of a pediatric dental visit an investment in your child’s lifetime oral health. Kids who don’t fear going to the dentist become adults who maintain their dental health by visiting a dentist every six months for a checkup.
When Should Bring in My Toddler for His or Her First Exam?
Your toddler should see a dentist for the first time by age one, when he or she has at least two teeth, since they usually come in pairs. Our toddler dentist will start preventative care as even baby teeth can get cavities. You’ll learn how to care for your toddler’s teeth at home and you can ask any questions that you have about teething, thumb sucking and any other concerns as well.
What Will Happen During My Toddler’s First Dental Appointment?
One of our pediatric dental specialists will evaluate your child’s oral health and develop a customized treatment program accordingly. We may take pediatric x-rays to look for any potential problems that may need attention from a pediatric periodontics specialist. Starting at age three, we offer dental cleaning for kids to keep your child’s baby teeth healthy.
Do You Have a Dentist for Children with Special Needs?
With their advanced training and experience, our dentists know how to make all children feel secure and relaxed. Please call our children’s pediatric dentistry practice to learn more about our personalized programs developed for children with special needs, which may include sedation dentistry.

New Patient Information
Bringing a toddler in for their first dental appointment, or an older child who is switching dentists, is stressful for busy parents as well as the child. You can fill out the new patient form at your convenience, print it, and then bring the form with you. We can verify your insurance on the phone when you make an appointment as well, so you are free to focus on your child instead of paperwork.
