Why Pediatric Dentistry?
Drs. Kidd and Hoy completed several years of additional training, beyond dental school, to specialize in providing dental care that’s specific to children. All of our kid-centered services are provided in a calm, caring environment in order to provide you and your child with a positive experience. In our opinion, taking your child to see a pediatric dental specialist is as important as taking them to see a pediatrician.
WHAT AGE SHOULD MY CHILD SEE A PEDIATRIC DENTIST?
The AAPD recommends that your child should be seen no later than 6 months after their first tooth erupts from the gum. Little teeth need as much attention as “big teeth” to prevent decay and encourage life-long healthy habits.
DOES PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY COST MORE?
Not necessarily! Every parent wants the best for their children, and we do too! Our practice is happy to work with you to create a dental hygiene plan for your child that will suit you and your family’s financial needs. As an added courtesy, we will file dental insurance for our patients. Although we do not control how your insurance handles its claims nor what benefits they provide, we are happy to save you the step of having to file yourself!
Do I Stay with My Child During the Visit?
We invite you to stay with your child during the initial appointment. Beyond that, we suggest you allow our caring staff to guide your child through the dental experience. Our purpose is to gain your child’s confidence and overcome any apprehension. However, if you’d prefer to join the appointments, you are welcome to do so.
“Clean facility with great office staff. Dr. Kidd was really knowledgeable and gave thorough information. My child was entertained and distracted during the visit, which allowed for an easy trip. Would recommend.”

“Both of my kids had an excellent visit. The experience compared with our previous regular dentist visits with my 3.5 yr old was night and day. She had such a great time that she hasn’t stopped talking about it. My 16 month old did great too. Dr. Kidd made both feel safe and comfortable and made the whole experience fun for them.”
