Pediatrics

Most of the time, our general dentists can take care of your child’s oral care needs. But if your child is having problems with the development of their teeth, or has certain oral health issues, our pediatric dentists are there to help. Pediatric dentists are dental specialists who, after four years of dental school, completed two to three years of training in children’s dentistry. They can diagnose and treat a range of complex childhood oral health problems. From toddlerhood to the teenage years, Kool Smiles pediatric dentists can help your child keep a happy, healthy smile in all the different stages of their life.

  • When should my child see a pediatric dentist?

    After your child’s first appointment with Kool Smiles, we can let you know if it is necessary for them to see a pediatric specialist.

  • What are common reasons for seeing a pediatric dentist?

    • Your child’s baby teeth are not coming in or falling out at the expected time.
    • Your child has special medical needs that affect their oral health
    • Your child has cavities in the adult teeth that are forming under the gum.
  • I only want to see a dentist who is great with kids. Does that mean I need to see a pediatric dentist?

    No. Although not all of our dentists are pediatric dentists, every one of them loves kids and has lots of experience working with children of all ages. All of our dentists—not just our pediatric dentists—have what it takes to make children feel safe and at ease in the dentist’s chair. If you have a child who is scared or unwilling to sit still for treatment, you can feel good knowing that our entire staff has the tools and training to help make it a better experience for you and your little one.
