At Children’s Dental Specialties, we are passionate about providing high-quality care for children. We aim to create a fun and safe environment, providing each child with the care and attention they deserve. Children’s Dental Specialties provides pediatric dental services, dentofacial orthopedics, and orthodontics in a caring and friendly environment. Our core values include the following.
Children’s Dental Specialties is a group of deeply passionate professionals. We focus on improving the lives of children by helping them achieve optimal oral health.
Since 1968, our office has helped countless children through multiple generations of families. Our experience is unrivaled in the community.
We are part of your community and believe all families should have a local ‘dental home.’ Healthy kids with good oral health are happier, do better at school and go on to make positive contributions to their communities.
Our use of innovations such as digital X-rays, 3D oral scans (impressions), and other cutting-edge techniques makes for a very different dental experience. We are the dental office you wish you had as a kid.
Our office design is unlike any other. The fun and comfortable experience here is engaging and keeps kids wanting to return; if you can ever get them to leave, that is.
Dental Technology for Kids
Our office provides the latest dental technology to diagnose patients and help plan their treatment. This technology is safe for children and allows our team to provide customized care:
We provide intraoral scans as a modern alternative to dental impressions. Traditional dental impressions use gooey, messy, and bad-tasting putty. Alternatively, intraoral scans take instant scans of the smile and send them to a computer. Using these digital scans, we can see a three-dimensional model of the smile. We often use intraoral scans for Invisalign, sports mouthguards, and bruxism night guards.
Our office uses digital dental x-rays to keep track of tooth development and find emerging dental problems. Modern dental x-rays have many benefits, including reduced radiation, quick treatment, and simple access for our team. Digital x-rays also allow us to save images and send x-rays to specialists if needed.
Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans use cone-shaped x-rays to take hundreds of pictures of the smile. When we take CBCT scans, the patient is in the middle of the machine as it rotates around them and takes images of the teeth and gums. Unlike dental x-rays, CBCT scans can show soft tissues, bones, and nerves all in detail. With CBCT scans, we can find signs of tooth decay within teeth, jaw issues, and bone loss.
Our Dental Office Appointment Policies
Read the following appointment policies and recommendations for scheduling different age groups.
Children, Infant to 10 Years Old
We recommend that preschool children are seen in the morning because they are more relaxed, and we are able to work more slowly with them and make them more comfortable. School-age children with extensive treatment needs are seen in the morning for the same reason. Excused absence forms explaining that dental treatment is medically necessary will be provided. We can keep missing school to a minimum when patients continue regular dental care.
Children Aged 11 to 18
Children in higher grades will be given preference for appointments during off-school hours, as they cannot miss school as easily as younger children. Please recognize that we try to accommodate as many children during off-school hours as possible. We will provide excused absence forms explaining that dental treatment is medically necessary.
Since appointed times are reserved exclusively for each patient, please notify our office at least two days in advance if you cannot keep your appointment. Another patient, who needs our care, could be scheduled if we have sufficient time to notify them. We realize that unexpected things can happen, but we ask for your assistance.
