Why Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. Just as pediatricians specialize in your child’s medical needs, we specialize in dentistry for children! No matter what brings you to our practice, know that we provide dental care in a safe, fun environment that gets kids excited about coming to the dentist.
Our Pediatric Dental Services
At Children’s Dentistry of Knoxville, we are able to care for a variety of dental needs for all children, from infants to adolescents. Our goal is always conservative pediatric dentistry, meaning we only recommend treatments that are necessary.
Outpatient Hospital Services
Whenever possible, we complete all treatment in our office. Some treatment, however, is best completed in a hospital setting under general anesthesia. When a child is unable to cooperate for treatment due to their age or because of dental anxiety, then treatment can be completed under general anesthesia.
While all emergencies don’t require immediate attention, many situations do need to be evaluated immediately. We realize that it’s never a good time to have a dental emergency, and we will always do our best to assist and treat you in an emergency or at least help to direct you to someone who can.
If you are having a dental emergency and one of our dentists is unable to be reached, you can always contact East Tennessee Children’s Hospital or UT Hospital to be seen in their emergency room.Contact Us
