Kidz-R-Kool Pediatric Dentistry provides exceptional dental health for children that includes gentle and routine cleanings, restorations, treatment of gum disease, protective sealants, interceptive orthodontics, emergency treatment, and instruction in proper home care and dental nutrition. We also have extensive training in the use of various sedation techniques including, Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas), oral conscious sedation (sleepy juice), and in-office IV anesthesia with a board certified Dental Anesthesiologist.
How are we special?
If your child is anxious about coming to the dentist – feel free to relax! Our staff and office makes every effort to help anxious children feel at home. Our staff will discuss the type of sedation that best meets the needs of your child, which may include nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, or IV sedation utilizing a board certified dental anesthesiologist. Because our office is geared toward young visitors, you’ll find that our team spirit, office design, and play activities all work together to provide an especially welcoming and happy environment for kids – and their parents!
What about anxiety?
Pediatric dentists, similar to pediatricians, monitor growth and development from infancy through the teenage years. This begins with your child’s first dental visit. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists (AAPD) recommend that the child’s first dental visit occur by your child’s first birthday. This early visit enables us to evaluate potential problems related to your child’s oral health as well as introduce you and your child to proper oral hygiene and dietary practices.
It is best if you refrain from using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear such as needle, drill, pull or hurt. Pediatric dental offices make a practice of using words that convey the same message but are pleasant and non-threatening to children.
