Working as a team, Midwestern faculty and students use the latest technology to provide complete primary and specialty dental services for children ages one and older—as well as contemporary orthodontic treatment for children and adults—at affordable prices.

Our pediatrics suite is designed to help your children feel comfortable while visiting the dentist, no matter their age.  Our faculty and student doctors remain attentive to each patient and parent during each visit, whether it be for an exam, cleaning, fillings, extractions, or other dental treatments. We also help educate parents and patients on preventing tooth decay and maintaining baby teeth until they naturally come out, as well as taking care of adult teeth when they come in.

We welcome new parents and their babies to discuss infant oral care, and we will continue to monitor your child’s dental progression, making recommendations as needed.

Because children’s mouths are continually changing as they grow and develop, our examinations must be thorough and appointments do take a little longer…so our family-oriented waiting area keeps children occupied—both the patient and his or her brothers and sisters.

Complete contemporary orthodontic services are also available for children and adults. For children, we recommend an orthodontic screening by age 7, because some children can benefit from early orthodontic intervention before all their adult teeth are in.

Patients of all ages who have special healthcare needs can find it especially challenging to receive dental care. You can request your appointment when a therapy dog is available to help patients relax. Our board-certified anesthesiologist aids patients who require sedation or anesthesia, and we use advanced dental laser treatments wherever possible to minimize pain and trauma and to speed healing.
