Providence Pediatric Dentist
Periodontics involves the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss. At our dental office, we will gently evaluate your child’s gums and overall oral health, and if necessary, will make recommendations for treatment.
Restorative dentistry is used to restore the strength and beauty of your smile. If your child has been suffering from pain caused by decay or other health conditions, they may benefit from restorative therapy. We offer conservative treatment solutions to preserve natural teeth, as well as tooth replacement options.
We provide excellent preventive care, including exams, cleanings, and digital x-rays. Early detection of dental problems is essential to gain optimal oral health. The American Dental Association recommends that your child follow a schedule of twice-yearly cleanings and exams.
According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, your child should visit the dentist within six months after the presence of the first tooth or by his or her first birthday. Early oral examination aids in the detection of the initial stages of tooth decay. Early detection is also essential to maintain good oral health.

Some of our patients include children with special needs. Our compassionate team will use our years of experience to adapt a personalized care approach that works best for your child with special needs.
Sometimes, the safest place to perform dental treatment for your child may be in the hospital setting. With our expertise, the proper equipment, and a qualified anesthesia team, we can treat even the most extensive oral health complications in a safe and compassionate environment.
