Going to the dentist doesn’t have to be scary for your children. Our Columbus, Ohio, pediatric dentists provide top-notch care in a child-friendly setting.

Our pediatric dental care is geared to kid-sized mouths and a young person’s fears. Our little patients aren’t small adults. We treat them in an age-appropriate way to make them comfortable and calm their anxieties.

Dentistry Suited to Children

Dentistry for kids, infant to teen, is different from adult dentistry. A child’s gums, teeth and mouth need special care. Baby teeth start coming in at six months. When your child reaches six or seven years, she will begin losing those first teeth, and permanent teeth will grow in.

Without the right treatment, children end up with decay, cavities and bad oral hygiene habits—all of which can affect them for a lifetime.

It’s not enough to make sure they brush after a meal. Your children need to see a dentist regularly, just like you do. But their problems aren’t the same as yours.

Did you know that early childhood dental caries is an infectious disease? This condition occurs five times more often than asthma and seven times more often than hay fever in children. It’s a shame, because with the right dental care, it is preventable.
