What makes Pediatric Dentistry P.C. Different?

Designed for Your Child

Everything about our office — from the specially-trained, experienced, and caring staff to the interior design and layout of our office — is designed for the optimum care of your child.

Personal Attention

We focus on serving you and your child. Our patients enjoy personalized, caring service; expert oral health care is fundamental to what we do.

Education Emphasis

We teach your child the fundamentals of oral health at a young age, including proper hygiene, healthy snacking, and fluoride use. We educate your child to establish healthy habits for life.
What is a Pediatric Dentist?

A Pediatric Dentist helps ensure your child’s oral health and provides care in a comfortable, age-appropriate setting. A Pediatric Dentist provides both routine and specialty oral health care for infants, children, adolescents, and persons with special health care needs. After four years of dental school, a Pediatric Dentist completes two years of additional specialty training which includes in-depth experiences in preventive care, growth and development, behavior management techniques, treatment of traumatic injuries, and treatment using sedation and general anesthesia.

Until what age will my child see a pediatric dentist?
Your child will usually maintain care with a pediatric dentist until approximately 18 years of age. At that time, young adults will usually have adult dental needs and will be best served by a general dentist.
At what age should my child first see a dentist?
Your child’s first dental visit should be within 6 months of eruption of the first tooth, but no later than 1 year of age.
What do you do if my young child won’t cooperate for the dentist’s examination?

Young children are often hesitant, scared, or resistant during an examination by a dentist – that is normal! Usually, a young child will do best for the dentist’s examination when they are laying down on a parent’s lap in a “knee to knee” position with the dentist. We will show you how to achieve the most comfortable examination for your child (and you can practice this at home!).

Exceptional care from Dr. Brent D. Johnson, DDS, MS, and his team! Their empathy, professionalism, and genuine concern made my daughter's teeth extraction a positive experience. They were remarkably calming and attentive to her needs, considering both epilepsy and mental health. Grateful for a compassionate dental practice that goes above and beyond! I highly recommend them!
