Pediatric Dentistry

Patients of all ages are welcome at Kirby Smiles, especially kids! It is imperative for children to have their first dental check-up as soon as teeth are present in the mouth. Early visits to the dentist are the best way to build a foundation of health for your children. Bringing your child in early may help avoid future development of dental problems. Early positive experiences with the dentist may also decrease the development of dental anxiety or phobia in the future. Our office is kid-approved, featuring a children's nook right in the waiting room, a wall of gumball machines filled with prizes for awesome patients, and TVs in the treatment rooms! 

Dental services for children include:

  • Education for patients and parents on how to maintain a healthy smile  
  • Exam and cleaning
  • Fluoride treatments to help prevent cavities
  • Sealants (thin, protective coatings placed on back teeth to help prevent cavities)
  • Mouth guards, if participating in contact sports
  • Restorative treatment, if necessary 
  • In-house sedation services in conjunction with restorative treatment, if necessary
