Make Your Child’s Visit Fun & Productive

Going to the dentist isn’t most kids’ idea of fun, but our amenities make their visits feel more like a friendly play date. Our offices feature:

  • TVs mounted in every care room so that your child can enjoy a movie while we work
  • Video game systems for your kids to play with in the reception area
  • Playhouses for your children to feel at home in

We have also invested in state-of-the-art dental technology to make treatments more precise and pleasant:

  • A Solea® CO2 laser, which simultaneously numbs the tooth and removes decay so we can perform a tooth filling shot-free
  • Digital X-rays, which allow us to get a clear view of your child’s mouth with a fraction of the radiation of traditional X-rays

Sedation Helps Calm Anxious Kids

To provide quality dental care for children, we have assembled a calming, soothing team specially trained to treat their needs.

While children enjoy visiting our caring team and kid-centered office, sometimes a reassuring voice and comfort options aren’t enough to relieve dental anxiety. If this is the case, we offer three child-safe forms of dental sedation:

  • Inhaled sedation with laughing gas
  • Oral conscious sedation in a tasty drink form
  • IV sedation if your child is especially nervous or anxious

We’ll be happy to discuss each option in detail with you so you can decide which one will work best for your child’s needs.
