Pediatric Dentistry

Receiving high-quality dental treatment is just as important for children as it is for adults. We take great pride in helping our younger patients achieve excellent oral health and pediatric dental services in the community.

Pediatric Dental Care at Broad Smiles

Taking care of your oral health should start at an early age—your child should visit the dentist right around their first birthday. We understand that getting your children to care for their teeth can be challenging, but we’re here to help. We provide comprehensive pediatric dentistry services in the Massachusetts area.

We ensure that every child feels relaxed and comfortable during their appointment and is excited for their next visit. Our lobby features refreshments and entertainment, such as TVs, to keep your child entertained. We have also extended hours to make it convenient for parents to arrange an appointment that works with their child’s school and other activities.

Schedule an appointment online at any of our three Massachusetts locations: Lynnfield, Salem, or Lynn.

  • What does pediatric dentistry include?

    Pediatric dentistry involves various dental care services for infants, children, adolescents, and individuals with special healthcare needs. These services include preventive care, oral exams, fluoride treatments, and dental sealants.

    Preventive care involves cleanings, fluoride treatments, and dental sealants to prevent cavities. Fluoride treatments help strengthen tooth enamel and can even reverse decay. Dental sealants are a proven preventive treatment involving applying a thick acrylic coating over the teeth to prevent harmful bacteria and plaque.

  • What is a pediatric dentist?

    A pediatric dentist is a dental professional who specializes in providing oral health care for children from infancy through their teenage years. To become a pediatric dentist, one must first complete dental school and undergo two additional years of residency training for infants, children, teens, and children with special needs. This specialized training focuses on managing and treating a child’s developing teeth, child behavior, physical growth and development, and the unique needs of children’s dentistry.

    Pediatric dentists are skilled in creating a friendly, fun, and welcoming environment that alleviates children’s fears of dental visits. They offer a wide range of treatment options, expertise, and training to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood, ensuring healthy development and maintenance of oral health.

  • What are the common issues of dental health in children?

    Many of a kid’s dental problems are the same ones affecting adults, but as children’s teeth are still developing, untreated dental conditions can cause poor and misaligned tooth development, leading to a more serious problem as a child grows up.

    Some of the most common issues with children are:

    • Tooth decay
    • Bad breath
    • Sensitive teeth
    • Thumb-sucking
    • Gum disease
    • Teeth grinding
    • Canker Sores
    • Baby teeth-loss
    • Over-retained primary teeth
    • Dental Anxiety
