Our office serves infants, toddlers, and teens with utmost compassion and understanding of individual concerns.
Our doctors are very gentle and patient and have years of experience and expertise in treating children of all ages.
In addition to providing excellent patient care, we create long-lasting personal relationships with families by educating both, children and their parents, about the benefits of oral health, as well as the negative effects of oral neglect on the overall health of a child. We also discuss the diet and eating habits of a child to determine the best individual approach to his or her dental needs and establish the necessary long-lasting preventive behavior.
In addition to conventional plastic or mental crowns that are covered by most dental insurances, here at Little Kids Dentistry we also offer highly esthetic extremely durable Nu-Smile crowns made of zirconia ceramic. They give children healthy and natural smiles and are affordably priced.
At Little Kids Dentistry, digital radiography is standard of care. Digital sensors that we use come in a variety of different sizes that easily fit inn the mouth of a toddler, a teenager or an adult. Taking digital X-Rays saves a lot of time and produces exceptional quality pictures. This allows the doctors to properly diagnose and treat tooth decay.
IV sedation is frequently considered for uncooperative, combative, or very anxious young patients who need more help relaxing than what nitrous (laughing gas) can provide. Contrary to popular belief, IV sedation does not mean that your child will be “put out”. It is not general anesthesia. IV sedation is simple and safe for both children and adults.
It involves receiving sedative (relaxing) medications intravenously. The best part is when your child wakes up from light sleep, he or she has no memory of the treatment. This eliminates any negative dental experience for a child.
Nitrous Oxide is a colorless, odorless gas that is commonly known as “laughing gas”. It’s used in combination with oxygen and is a very safe and effective way to help reduce a child’s pain and anxiety during dental treatment. It’s inhaled through a small mask that fits over your child’s nose and helps him or her to relax.
Your child is awake throughout the procedure and usually recovers very quickly after the dental treatment has been completed.
At Little Kids Dentistry, every parent is surprisingly overwhelmed at how much we give back to our community. Besides daily welcome gifts and raffle items that parents receive, each child in a family is awarded a big welcome toy at their initial visit, as well as a $10 gift card to various stores in the area.
