Children’s Dentistry

Desired Smiles is dedicated to providing the utmost in pediatric care. Pediatric dentists are dental professionals who have undergone additional training and education to address the unique dental and oral health needs of children and teenagers. Here are some key aspects of pediatric dentistry:

Preventive Care

Pediatric dentists focus heavily on preventive dental care. This includes regular check-ups, cleanings, and fluoride treatments to help children maintain good oral health and prevent dental issues like cavities.


Pediatric dentists not only treat dental problems but also educate both children and parents on proper oral hygiene practices. They teach kids how to brush and floss effectively and encourage healthy habits from an early age.

Early Intervention

Pediatric dentists are skilled in identifying and addressing dental issues in their early stages. They can diagnose and treat problems like crooked teeth, misaligned jaws, and bite issues. Early intervention can often reduce the need for more extensive treatments later on.

Behavior Management

Working with children requires a unique set of communication and behavior management skills. Pediatric dentists are trained to create a comfortable and friendly environment to help children feel at ease during dental visits.

Emergency Care

General dentists are often available for dental emergencies, such as toothaches, broken teeth, or dental trauma. They can provide immediate relief and treatment as needed.

Specialized Equipment

Pediatric dental offices are often equipped with child-friendly tools and equipment designed to accommodate the smaller mouths and developing teeth of children.

Dental Emergencies

Pediatric dentists are equipped to handle dental emergencies involving children, such as tooth injuries, abscesses, or severe toothaches.

Special Needs Dentistry

Pediatric dentists may also have training in providing dental care to children with special needs or medical conditions that affect their oral health.

The goal of pediatric dentistry is to promote good oral health habits in children and to ensure that they have a positive dental experience, setting the foundation for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Regular visits to a pediatric dentist are essential for monitoring a child's dental development and addressing any issues as early as possible.
