Why Choose Sheehan Dentistry for Children for Your Child’s Dental Care?


Experienced Pediatric Dentists

Our team of experienced and compassionate pediatric dentists and dental assistants specializes in providing dental care tailored to the unique needs of children. We recognize that children require specialized attention, and our dentists are well-equipped to handle the dental needs of infants, children, and adolescents.

Child-Friendly Environment

At Sheehan Dental, we have created a child-friendly environment to make your little ones feel at ease during their dental visits. We understand that going to the dentist can be a new and intimidating experience for your child; that’s why we go above and beyond to ensure they feel relaxed and comfortable during their entire visit. 

Preventive Dentistry for Lifelong Oral Health

Preventive dentistry is a cornerstone of our approach to pediatric dental care. We focus on education and early intervention to prevent dental issues before they become more significant problems. Regular check-ups, cleanings, and fluoride treatments are essential components of our preventive care to ensure your child’s smile stays bright and healthy.


Comprehensive Pediatric Dental Services



Our range of Dentistry for Children services covers a wide spectrum of needs, including:


1. First Dental Visit

We recommend scheduling your child’s first dental visit by their first birthday. This early introduction helps establish a positive relationship with the dentist and allows us to monitor your child’s oral health from the beginning.

2. Dental Cleanings and Exams

Regular dental cleanings and exams are crucial for maintaining optimal oral health. Our gentle and experienced hygienists ensure thorough cleaning while our dentists perform comprehensive exams to detect any potential issues early on.

3. Orthodontic Evaluation

Early orthodontic evaluations allow us to identify and address any developing orthodontic issues. Early intervention often reduces the need for more extensive orthodontic treatment later on.

4. Ongoing Dental Treatments 

Just like an adult, children need to have regular appointments with a dentist. At Sheehan Dental, we want to ensure that your children’s teeth are always protected and that their growing smile keeps shining bright. We will recommend the appropriate treatments for your little ones and provide ongoing dental care. 

5. Emergency Dental Care

Accidents happen, and we are here to provide prompt and compassionate emergency dental care when your child needs it most. Whether it’s a knocked-out tooth or a dental injury, we are equipped to handle various dental emergencies.
