Adams Pediatric Dentistry
This office is unique in the way that they treat their patients. The children go through a series of rotations for the cleaning and then assessment process. Instead of waiting in a chair the entire time, they are taken to a game room, so that they aren't as bored while wait for each phase. Both Dr. Adams and his son aren't just doing procedures for financial gain either (unlike Dr. Perdue in Bellevue).

A trusted Dr. at Vanderbilt recommended Dr. Perdue for my son with special needs. I am so thankful that she did. He is a very caring man and we had a hard time finding a dentist who would see adults w special needs like my son who is non verbal. It is such a blessing that he is takes care of my son with such kindness! He answers all the questions that we have too. The staff is also great!

Drs. Mirna and Robert Caldwell are always pleasant and helpful. The hygienists and support staff are nice and friendly. I love the games in the waiting area. They keep my little guy occupied. I have a child with special needs, and they are always great with him. He actually likes going to the dentist because he gets to play!

The providers there are amazing! My child went to another provider previously who suggested semi invasive teeth pulling- for baby teeth. This provider didn't suggest that at all, instead gave her instructions on how to properly manage her oral care, and assured there weren't any teeth with cavities in them at all.

We had a very long wait with this popular pediatric dentist, but we really liked his interaction with our child and with the second-generation expertise available in this practice. This office offers oral sedation for small children.

Great dentist. My child needed a filling and they went out of their way to make him feel comfortable. Everyone is always so nice. If you need a pediatric dentist this is where you should go.

The Caldwells run a great practice and my kids actually dont mind going for checkups and look forward to getting their "coin" afterwards. It is a very busy practice.

My children don't even mind going to the dentist at Dr. Perdue's office. The hygienists are the BEST!
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.
