Welcome to Whittington Pediatric Dentistry!
We certainly want your child’s first dental visit to be a pleasant one. Our practice offers a kid-friendly environment that is welcoming to children of all ages. We recommend that your child have their first dental checkup when their first teeth come in or when they turn one year old, whichever comes first. During your first visit, we will take down important information about your child’s progress and development as well as notes on your family medical and dental history. Our dentist will perform a physical examination of your child’s mouth and neck to look for signs of any developmental abnormalities.
Anticipatory guidance is a service where we provide education to parents on how to maintain their child’s oral health and anticipate changes as their child develops. We have a wealth of information available to families in the form of pamphlets and online resources. Feel free to ask our team for guidance any time you have a question.
Our caring staff provides thorough dental checkups and professional cleanings along with preventive treatments and patient education services.
Advanced Pediatric Services
We offer a number of services that can increase oral function and improve oral health while accommodating the needs of a developing child.
Sedation & Anesthesia
When it comes to procedures like extractions and other oral surgeries, sedation can improve patient comfort and help keep restless children at ease.
