How does a pediatric dentist differ from a general dentist?

Pediatric dentists complete two or three years of additional specialized training after dental school, which includes study in child psychology, behavior, growth, and development. 

How do I help my child go through teething?

Children between 6 months and 3 years of age can go through teething as teeth erupt through gums.  To help soothe the pain, you can use a cold clean teething ring, or clean cool washcloth applied to the gums. 

Are dental x-rays safe for children?

At Advanced Children’s Dentistry, we use advanced digital x-ray technology which reduces exposure by 80% making it very safe for children. (or adults)

Will my child’s visit be covered by my insurance?

Since there are dozens of different dental plans, we need to review your specific coverage at our office.

We do accept, however, most major dental plans.


Do you handle Special Needs Children?

Yes, our pediatric dentist has had additional specialized training to work with special needs children. We also offer both nitrous oxide and on-site general anesthesia services.

What are dental sealants?

A dental sealant is a liquid resin brushed onto teeth that have grooved or pitted surfaces to help protect them from cavities, also known as tooth decay. Applying a dental sealant is quick and painless.

Does every child need braces?

Not every child needs braces. During their visit, we will evaluate growth factors and postion of existing teeth and advise as to what might be needed orthodontically. That may include fixed or removable appliances, spacer-maintainers or braces.
