At Dreamland Dental & Orthodontics, we provide pediatric dentistry services to provide specialized dental and oral care for your children. Our pediatric services involve disease prevention and dental treatment services for children under the age of 18 years, including sealants, fillings, fluoride treatment, mouth guards, braces, extractions, and space maintainers, among others.
Many families with young children often seek the help of age-based specialists to attend to the different needs of their children. While pediatricians can attend to all the healthcare needs of your child, pediatric dentists can help your child achieve and maintain a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile.
How is Pediatric Dentistry Different from General Dentistry?
While general dentists receive training in pediatric dentistry, they may not necessarily be the best choice for a dental professional if they don’t specialize in family dental care. Pediatric dentists are just general dentists who are comfortable treating small children, and are familiar with the typical behavioral conditions that they will encounter during treatment. So they know how to manage them to deliver the needed treatment.
Children are not always patient and cooperative during dental visits. Our pediatric dentist knows how best to treat your child, and make him calm and comfortable on the dentist’s chair so his/her teeth and mouth can be examined. Moreover, the dentist’s office is uniquely arranged and decorated, with specially designed equipment to spark interest in the child and create a sense of familiarity and calm.
The Treatments We Provide
We have the training and expertise to provide complete oral health solution for our young patients, including:
Diagnosis and treatment of teeth, gums, and mouth-related problems
Habit counseling – such as thumb sucking and the use of pacifiers
Early assessment for improper bite and the need for orthodontics for teeth straightening
Care of dental injuries – such as fractured, knocked-out, or displaced teeth
Diagnosis of oral problems linked to other health conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hyperactivity disorder (attention deficit), hay fever, and asthma
Periodontal health management – pediatric gum disease, ulcers, mucoceles, or short frenulum
Who is the Right Candidate for Pediatric Dentistry?
Our pediatric dentists treat children of all ages, from birth to college. If your child is experiencing unique developmental challenges or some other medical condition that requires him or her to receive medical attention within a hospital setting, you may find yourself in need of a pediatric dentist to provide the necessary care.
Often times, children with unique needs that continue into adulthood may still visit our pediatric dentist even after the age of 18 years. As long as the child continues to visit Dreamland Dental, our pediatric dentists will be able to keep track of his/her dental history, including any special procedures performed or recommended in future.

Our primary goal is to steer children and adolescents on the right path to optimal dental health and oral hygiene. In addition to performing routine dental checkups and professional cleanings, we educate our young patients about proper brushing and flossing techniques and other ways to maintain the optimal health of their teeth, gums, and mouth.
We believe that our pediatric dentistry services prepare children for a lifetime of exceptional dental health and an impeccable smile. Please contact Dreamland Dental & Orthodontics to schedule an appointment with our pediatric dentist.
