Dental Services for Children
Your child’s primary (baby) teeth play a vital role in their dental development, and will impact how their permanent smile grows. We provide the dental services to ensure that these teeth stay healthy and promote a beautiful smile they can wear their whole life.
Our pediatric dental services include:
- Dental cleanings
- Full exams
- Digital x-rays
- Dental crowns
- Pulp caps
- Patient education
- Nutritional counseling
If your child needs orthodontic care, we refer you to a skilled orthodontist, and work closely with them to ensure your child receives the best dental care overall.
Providing a Positive Dental Experience
We take special care when it comes to our younger patients. We know that a positive experience can make a real difference in how your child responds to dental treatment, and can even affect how likely they are to continue dental care as an adult.
Dr. Meda and his team take time to get to know your child, making sure they feel comfortable and safe from their very first dental visit. We use child-friendly teaching methods and terminology, helping them understand how to care for their teeth and why it’s important.
We also help you, as a parent, understand more about your child’s health, so you feel informed and empowered to make the best decision for your child’s dental care. We answer any questions you have about their care options, and can provide at-home care and nutrition recommendations as well.
We make every effort to provide a safe and relaxed environment for your child. However, we also understand that some children feel anxious about dental visits in general. If your child is stressed by dental visits, we work with them to ease their anxiety. Nitrous oxide is also available to help them relax if needed.
A Lifetime of Quality Dental Care
At Ireland Park Dentistry, we believe that good oral health is invaluable at every age. Whether you and your loved ones are long-time patients or visiting us for the first time, we look forward to welcoming you to our dental family. Contact our office and make an appointment today!
