Our Team Welcomes You
From the initial appointment at a child’s first birthday to their graduation, it’s our goal to guide every patient to great oral and overall health! Our kid-centered practice strives to create an environment that puts your child at ease and creates a true “dental home” at PDOH. Our doctors are specifically trained in the care of children and their “little teeth,” so you can rest assured in the care provided.

Why Pediatric Dentistry?
All of our doctors completed additional years of training, beyond dental school, to specialize in providing dental care that’s specific to children. Our office environment is not only kid-friendly in design and activities, but also technologically advanced. In our opinion, taking your child to see a pediatric dental specialist is as important as taking them to see a pediatrician.
WHAT AGE SHOULD MY CHILD SEE A PEDIATRIC DENTIST?
The AAPD recommends that your child should be seen no later than 6 months after their first tooth erupts from the gum. Your child’s first birthday is an excellent time for their first dental visit. Little teeth need as much attention as “big teeth” to prevent decay and encourage life-long healthy habits.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD MY CHILD VISIT THE DENTIST?
Generally, your child should see the dentist every 6 months. Tracking oral habits, hygiene, and growth regularly is essential to ensuring we can prevent any arising issues before restorative actions have to be taken.
Does Pediatric Dentistry cost more?
Not necessarily! Every parent wants the best for their children, and we do too! Our practice accepts most insurances, including Kentucky Medicaid and KCHIP. We are happy to work with you to create a dental hygiene plan for your child that will suit you and your family’s financial needs.
