Pediatric dentists are specifically trained to care for the needs of children of all ages and backgrounds. They are required to attend a few years of additional training after completing dental school just to learn everything that goes into working with kids. Some pediatric dentists will even work with adults who have special needs because they are so well-educated when it comes to catering to special needs. No matter what your child requires, we will do our best to ensure that they have positive and productive experiences with our team.
It seems like kids are always on the move, and it can be hard to get them to sit still for the duration of their dental treatment. If your child finds it difficult or nearly impossible to sit still with their mouth open for an extended period of time, we do offer sedation services that can help. Before we administer dental sedation, we always go over the patient’s medical and dental history as well as their current health status to ensure that dental sedation is safe to add to their treatment plan. For more information, please contact us or visit our sedation page.Learn More
Our office is designed to make kids feel safe and welcome, but it can still be scary to be in a different environment. We recommend discussing how dental visits work with your child beforehand, and we can also talk to them and ease any fears they may have. They can request a blanket or bring a stuffed animal from home to hold, and we can put their favorite show on to watch while we work as well. Our team has years of experience making kids feel secure in our care, and we will do everything we can to help reduce your child’s anxiety.Contact Us
