Pediatric dentists spend an extra 2 years after dental school focusing on treatment of children. Much like taking your child to a pediatrician, pediatric dentists see only children and are more accustomed to helping them adapt to a dental environment in a positive way.  They are trained in a variety of areas and work closely with pediatricians, orthodontists, and other health care providers to ensure children get an early start at developing skills and routines to make their smiles and overall health beautiful and long lasting!

Comprehensive dental treatment for infants, adolescents, and teenagers.

Cleanings - thorough dental prophylaxis (polishing), removal of hard deposits on teeth, flossing, fluoride, and oral hygiene instructions 

Digital x-rays - require shorter exposure times for images, which means less radiation

Fillings - traditional amalgam restorations which have been proven safe and effective time and time again, and non-mercury composite (white) fillings available

Extractions - helping a wiggly tooth or a sick tooth find its way to the Tooth Fairy

Space Maintainers - to help ensure proper development and to prevent any unwanted tooth movements if a baby tooth is lost prematurely.

Monitoring growth and development of children’s mouths - Helping to determine appropriate times for a trip to see the orthodontist, or the oral surgeon for wisdom teeth evaluations, and to ensure everyone’s smile is developing the way it should.
