Pediatric Dentistry

Welcome to Little Smiles.

From child-sized treatment chairs and tree forts to the area’s largest treasure chest, Little Smiles believes exceptional pediatric dental care can be combined with a great experience. Your child will actually want to visit the dentist!

On behalf of the Little Smiles team, thank you for entrusting us with the care of your child. You can make your child’s visit positive for the entire family by following a few easy steps.

  • Arrange for a morning appointment for children 5 and under whenever possible, as most children are more positive, alert, and receptive at this time.
  • The words we use make all the difference. It’s best to avoid talking about specific procedures or instruments. These ideas may confuse or upset your child. If your child has questions, please use the following word substitutions:

INSTEAD OF
Floss
Suction
Fluoride
Shot
Drill
Extract / Pull Tooth
Teeth Cleaned

USE
Silly String
Mr. Slurpy
Vitamins
Sleep Juice / Spray
Mr. Whistler
Wiggle
Teeth Tickled

We look forward to your visit and the opportunity to help your child maintain a healthy smile!
