If you’re new to the area, or looking for a new dental home for your child or teen, our team of board certified pediatric dentists are here to help. Our Boise office is designed with little ones in mind, so they can get the care they need in a comfortable space they can feel safe in. Conveniently located at 651 E Parkcenter Blvd, we’re less than ten minutes away from downtown Boise, right next to Slattery Orthodontics and St. Luke’s Clinic.
Patient Comfort – If your child has special needs or dental anxiety, we will do everything we can to cater to their needs. We offer dental sedation for any procedure, even dental cleanings! Nitrous oxide will make your child feel relaxed, euphoric, and may make them giggle.
It can cause them to forget what happens during the appointment but they will be fully conscious during it. For more complex procedures, we offer general anesthesia so your child can be put asleep while we work on their mouth.
If you or your child would feel more comfortable with you accompanying them to the treatment room and holding them in your lap, you are free to do so. Our entire team is trained on how to communicate and explain things in a child-friendly way so the dentist won’t seem scary to your little one.
A Child-Friendly Office – Our office has been designed to appeal to children while providing a relaxing environment for the parents. Since children like to remain occupied while they wait, they’re free to play in our child play area with toys and a fun colorful layout. We also have a fish tank that can make children feel comforted and enamored with the little fish that they spot.
Specialized Pediatric Care – As pediatric dentists, we have undergone an additional 2-3 years of dental schooling and training to provide specialized care for children. Unlike a general or family dentist, we are highly trained in how to socialize with children, make them feel comfortable, understand child psychology and development, and how to treat oral health problems that are specific to children. Best of all, once your child builds rapport with us, they can stay comfortable because we treat children up until they turn 18!
We proudly provide preventative, restorative, and emergency dental care to the Boise community. From routine dental cleanings, checkups, and x-rays that detect warning signs of tooth decay and gum disease early on to preventative treatments such as fluoride varnish and dental sealants that protect teeth against cavities, we ensure that your child has a fighting chance for excellent oral health from a very early age.
As pediatric dentists, we can also offer guidance on how to encourage your child to eat a healthier diet that reduces their risk of cavities and how to wean them off of behaviors such as pacifier use and thumb sucking that can cause pacifier teeth.
If your child does get a cavity or their teeth become damaged due to dental trauma, we can fill their cavities with tooth-colored fillings that blend in with their teeth and protect vulnerable or chipped teeth with dental crowns. If your child has lost a baby tooth too soon, we can keep the space open for the permanent tooth to erupt properly with a space maintainer.
Run into a dental emergency? No problem! We don’t expect our patients in Boise to be able to plan for a dental emergency to happen strictly during office hours. After all, the nature of an emergency is that it happens unexpectedly!
That’s why we offer same-day, after-hours, and weekend appointments for your child when they need emergency treatment. We will always have a pediatric dentist on call to deliver expert prompt treatment, relieve their pain, and get to the source of the problem.
Whether your child is less than a year old or seventeen, whether they have one tooth or all of them, we’ll be your go-to dental home for expert compassionate care for your loved one. Contact us at Dentistry For Children to schedule an appointment today.
