Your Child's Unique Needs

Pediatric dentists receive extensive schooling to treat the medical, developmental, emotional, and behavioral needs of your growing child.

When Should Your Child First Visit a Dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend a child’s first dental visit at 12 months of age, and then every 6 months for checkups and other needed services.

Is Your Child Nervous or Afraid?

  • We understand! We strive to make the experience positive. Parents are welcome to sit with and support their child.
  • To help young or anxious children, we can use laughing gas and medicines to help children accept dental care.
  • We can treat children in the operating room at Strong Memorial Hospital with the help of pediatric anesthesia doctors.
