This Pediatric Dentist absolutely exceeded every expectation. The staff is friendly and efficient. their system to make filing out paperwork is innovative. It cuts down the wait time. Everyone was excellent with my kids. My 2 year old was calm and comfortable. It was his first dentist visit. The cleaning were thorough and not abrasive. My husband and I were allowed in the room with the kids which was very important to me. I drove nearly an hour to reach this location but i absolutely love it. I would tell everyone with children to take the well worth drive.

My kids LOVE going to the dentist. Not only is Dr. Kady wonderful, but her staff is always accommodating and makes my children completely at ease. We look forward to the appointments and the only problem we have is, they they both want to go first!!!
Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
