About Pediatric

Pediatric dentistry is a comprehensive oral health program specifically designed for young patients, from check-ups to complex dental procedures, with a team that knows how to make a visit at the dentist's less painful and more comfortable.

A dental exam can reveal other conditions, and a pediatric dentist is trained to recognize these signs and symptoms in a growing child. In addition to preventive services, a hospital-based pediatric dentist has the expertise to treat problems associated with inherited disorders, and underlying medical or developmental conditions.

Our dentists are uniquely qualified to care for children who are medically fragile or compromised, patients with physical or mental difficulties and children with a traumatic injury to the face or jaw.

Our advanced preventive and emergency dental care services for infants, children, and adolescents, include:

  • Conscious sedation dentistry
  • Dental care for medically compromised and developmentally challenged children
  • Dental emergencies
  • Dental treatment under anesthesia
  • Infant oral health
  • Nursing bottle caries
  • Oral surgery
  • Orthodontics and braces
  • Sealants
  • Tooth decay (cavities)
  • Toothache (pulpitis)
  • Wisdom teeth extraction

Pediatric dentists have expertise in techniques and procedures to care for infants, children, adolescents, and those with special health care needs.

Their skills are applied to the needs of children throughout their ever-changing stages of development and to treating conditions and diseases unique to growing individuals.
