Pediatric Dentistry

smile-design-dental-has-childrens-dentists-to-provide-dentistry-for-these-young-patients-in-coral-springs-fort-lauderdale-hallandale-beach-margate-and-plantationSmile Design Dental includes teams of family dentists and children’s dentists to provide dentistry for young patients at each of locations in Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, Hallandale Beach, Margate, and Plantation, Florida. Some of our offices even include a separate pediatric wing with a side entrance and private waiting area apart from our general dental facility, providing a more inviting environment for our younger patients.

We’ve designed our facilities to treat the whole family and improve your child’s outlook on dental care. Bringing your child in for a check-up by his or her first birthday can help them become more accustomed to preventive care, and avoid anxiety about dental care in the future.

Gentle Children’s Dentist
Each of our family and children’s dentists have warm, friendly personalities that help your child remain comfortable through procedures like:

  • Exams to screen for oral health and developmental conditions of the bite
  • Cleanings, fluoride, and dental sealants to protect smiles and prevent decay
  • Oral hygiene instruction to ensure healthy brushing and flossing habits
  • Sport guards that help prevent broken teeth and concussions
  • Braces to correct misalignment of the teeth
  • White fillings that are smaller, less invasive, and blend in with the smile
  • Pulpotomies and crowns to eliminate abscesses and toothaches

We focus on preventive dentistry, because it helps your child keep a healthier smile for life. If decay or a problem is spotted, we aim to correct it early on, before it becomes too advanced or has the chance to lead to an emergency. That way, visits are easier and shorter in the future.

Schedule your child’s first visit around the time that his or her first tooth erupts – or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. The first visit will be a “fun” experience that introduces your child to our office and allows us to quickly screen for underlying conditions that may cause concern.

Sedation for Children

young-child-pediatric-dental-patient-that-required-urgent-dental-care-but-was-too-anxious-to-sit-through-a-typical-procedure-so-had-safe-pediatric-sedation-optionsIf your son or daughter requires urgent dental care but is too anxious to sit through a typical procedure, we have a variety of safe pediatric sedation options to choose from. This prevents treatment from having to be delayed to the point where it becomes more severe and expensive to correct.

Every child deserves to have a dentist that he or she can feel comfortable with. At Smile Design Dental, our team of family and children’s dentists put your child’s unique needs first. Each of our team members is happy to answer any questions that you may have, and make accommodations for the most positive experience possible.

Insurance and Financing
Our Smile Design Dental children’s dentists accept all dental insurance plans, including Medicaid. Financing is also available. We’ll work directly with your insurance provider to arrange payments and estimates for your son or daughter’s treatment. Every treatment plan is itemized so that you never have to be surprised about unexpected health expenses.
