Dentistry for Children & Adolescents

High-Quality Dental Care Just for Kids.

At Park Place Kids, our compassionate staff delivers high-quality dental care in a fun atmosphere. Everything about our practice is designed to create a comfortable, non-threatening dental experience for your child. We go the extra mile to provide the compassionate care your child deserves.

Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

Just as pediatricians are trained to see to your child’s medical needs, pediatric dental specialists are specially trained to care for your child’s growing smile. Pediatric dentists are primary and specialty oral care providers for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs. Unlike general dentists, pediatric dentists have two to three years of specialty training following dental school and limit their practice to treating only children.

At Park Place, our team of dental specialists will go above and beyond to make your family’s visit to our office enjoyable. Our team is trained to answer many of your most pressing questions but for immediate answers, check out our FAQs.

Pediatric Dental Services for Kids

Pediatric Dental Cleanings & Exams

Keeping your kid’s teeth healthy and strong is as important to us as it is to you. With that in mind, our pediatric dentist promotes prevention—both at home and in our office! We do our best to prevent cavities and strengthen young teeth through routine dental cleanings and exams. During these appointments, our board-certified pediatric dentists and orthodontist will teach your child how to effectively brush and floss, and when necessary, recommend preventive treatments such as fluoride and dental sealants.

Restorative Dental Treatments

While our pediatric dental team hopes your child never experiences oral infection or disease, cavities are sometimes an unfortunate part of life. In the event that your kid’s dentist notices the start of an infection, we will work with you to develop recommendations for a treatment plan based on their unique needs. If you’d like to speak with a member of our team regarding preventative care or are concerned that your child may be experiencing an infection, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your office today to schedule an appointment!

Sedation Dentistry

While many children remain unfazed by the excitement of a dental appointment, others may require a bit more assistance remaining calm and comfortable during the completion of necessary procedures. In some circumstances, our pediatric dentist may recommend the use of nitrous oxide (commonly referred to as laughing gas) to calm your calm a child who may be unable to sit comfortably through treatment due to their age or possible developmental reasons. No matter the reason, our pediatric dental team is happy to accommodate your child’s special needs.

Special Needs Dentistry

Patients with special needs are those who due to physical, medical, developmental, or cognitive conditions require special consideration when receiving dental treatment. This can include people with autism, down syndrome, spinal cord injuries, and countless other conditions that can make standard dental procedures more difficult or uncomfortable. Caring for a special needs patient takes compassion and understanding. While some dentists can accommodate for special needs patients, our pediatric dentists are specially trained to meet the needs of these patients.

Dentistry for Infants

Following the American Dental Association’s (ADA) recommendation, our pediatric dentist recommends scheduling your little one’s first exam before their first birthday (even if a tooth has yet to emerge). During your first visit, our dentist may do a quick check of your child’s gums and/or existing teeth to examine their bite and look for any potential infection. We are experienced in providing infant dental care, and we’ll happily answer all the questions you have about dental health as a new parent including those relating to things like gum care, frenuloplasties, and frenectomies.
