We Will Ensure Your Child’s Visit Is Positive

When you bring your little one to Dentistry for Children for the first time, we will do everything we can to make their “happy visit” a pleasant experience. We’ll make sure your child feels right at home. Plus, kids love taking brief tours of our office and getting to see some of the “cool” tools we use.

If your child needs a little extra help relaxing during their visit, we also offer options for dental sedation. Depending on their age, the treatment they need, and their level of fear, we may recommend:

  • Inhaled sedation using laughing gas
  • Oral conscious sedation in drink form
  • IV sedation

By showing your children that there’s nothing to fear, we can help them have a positive association with the dentist for years to come. This will encourage them to maintain a beautiful smile and optimal oral health as they grow up.

Trust a Specially Trained Team With Your Child’s Smile

You’ll be happy to know that our calming and compassionate staff has undergone training in treating children to ensure positive visits for your little ones.

We will spend extra time with your kids during their initial dental visit so we can help them feel safe and comfortable. This will also allow us to get to know your children better and improve their quality of care.

For your child’s first dental visit, choose the kid-friendly experience offered at Dentistry for Children. Call us today to schedule their appointment at either of our Salt Lake City area locations: 801-871-3008 in Sandy, UT or 801-758-7119 in West Valley, UT.
