Our Dental Clinic offers oral health exams, prevention and treatment for children ages 12 months to 15 years. During an exam, we will clean your child’s teeth and evaluate risk for tooth decay. In addition, we share dental tips to practice at home, including how certain food and drinks can affect your child’s teeth. Our dentists also provide sealants, fillings and other care, if needed.
Our team is specially trained to take care of your child, whether a routine check-up or treatment for a complex health problem. Our goals are to help you keep your child healthy and help you get your child the appropriate care. We treat many conditions, such as sickle cell disease, asthma, ADHD and obesity. We also see patients with special healthcare needs, such as children born very early or who have a feeding tube, seizures, and developmental delay or problems with more than one organ.
Mental Health Services
If your child needs help with mental health or behavior, our team offers several options to help you choose the tools best for your child:
- Talking with a mental health therapist when your child comes for a medical visit
- Getting information about a specific issue, like depression
- Getting support by phone
- Having your child see a mental health therapist for regular visits
- Getting referrals to other places that can help, including additional therapy visits
- Accessing services including testing, therapy, home and school visits
Sickle Cell Program
Our Sickle Cell Program provides care and treatment for children who have sickle cell disease. Prevention is a major focus – taking steps to prevent infections, pain and other health problems before they start. We help make sure your child, your family and staff at your child’s school know everything you need to know about this disease and how to take care of it. We also hold monthly educational and support events. If you want to know about sickle cell trait and the risk for sickle cell in your family, we can talk with you about this, too.
