Here at Southwoods Pediatric Dentistry, we are proud to specialize in pediatric dentistry.

Our entire staff is very good with children. We know and understand how children think, so we can start them off right. We want them to believe the dentist’s office is a good place instead of being scared of it. We take our time with all patients so they have an enjoyable visit.

Our dentists and entire staff understand the importance of good oral health for young children. They have specialized training in primary teeth. They are here to help protect and restore children’s teeth so that they can speak and eat easily and have a wonderful smile. They understand the growth and development of children’s teeth so they can start children off with good oral health.

We also understand how important taking care of children’s teeth is. We will work with parents to ensure their children are taking good care of their teeth at home. We will also monitor their mouths for any problems so we can catch them early. If needed, we will work with your children’s regular doctor (or refer them to a specialist if needed) to treat any problems we find.

If you have any questions or would like your children seen, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (518) 242-7800.

Recall Visits
We recommend your child’s first visit to be within six months of their first tooth’s arrival. Based on their dental health, we will recommend when to return.

Digital Radiographs
We offer x-rays to our patients right in the office and are an important tool for us to look at your child’s teeth.

We offer sealants to help protect your child’s teeth as they grow. Even the best brushers and flossers can miss spots.

Restorative Dentistry
We offer all phases of pediatric dentistry we have a variety of options for treating your child. Also, in the event of an accident and your child has a broken or missing tooth we can help.

While many municipal water supplies contain fluoride, it is important to make sure your child gets enough in their diet. We can provide fluoride treatments if needed.

Silver Diamine Fluoride/ SMART FILLINGS
Did you know that decay on teeth can now be treated without numbing, drilling, or filling your child’s tooth. This is especially a great service for parents that would like to avoid sedating their child.

Special Health Care Needs
We tailor our service to all patients. Our office is wheelchair accessible and our staff is highly trained to help all patients regardless of their needs.

Behavior Guidance and Desensitization
Our staff is specially trained to help children from infant to adolescents. Our office is a great environment designed to relax the patient. We offer desensitization visits to help your little one love coming to the dentist.

If a child is exceptionally afraid of treatment, we offer conscious sedation and we also have a dental anesthesiologist that comes to our office and can administer IV sedation to keep your child comfortable during treatment.

Nitrous Oxide
In order to give our patients a stress-free visit we offer nitrous oxide to help your child relax. It is not a sedative.
