Protect Your Children’s Teeth and Oral Health with Gentle, Comprehensive Pediatric Dental Care

Pediatric dentists understand the special needs of children from birth through adolescence. They also understand the importance of preventive care. Using state-of-the-art techniques and equipment, they will monitor your children’s teeth and oral health, teach them to practice good health habits, and address any problems that arise.

They take the time to calm patients’ fears and put them at ease. They employ special techniques to help children overcome anxiety and manage pain, including oral sedation, if needed. Children who require extensive care or experience extreme anxiety can be cared for in a pediatric operating suite at the Children's Hospital of Georgia.
