Where kids' smiles shine

Did you know that taking care of your child's teeth is super important for their overall health? By giving your little one great oral care from the get-go, you're not only preventing dental issues down the line, but also ensuring that any problems that pop up as they grow are taken care of. Plus, here's a fun fact: good oral care might even help keep them healthy later on in life! So let's help your child smile big and bright for years to come with some excellent oral care.

The Tufts Pediatric Dentistry Clinic offers affordable, comprehensive dental care tailored to children aged 6 months to 18 years.

Testing

We don’t leave your child’s oral health to chance. We start with a complete oral examination of your child’s mouth, teeth and gums. Using dental X-rays, we can detect any issues or conditions that might not be visible to the naked eye. We may not X-ray your child's teeth each time, but it allows to us to identify any issues and some future issues they may experience.

Treatments

Your child may come to us for preventive treatments like cleanings or restorative treatments. We also offer care for fillings and may recommend spacers. We know that undergoing even the simplest treatment can be new for your child and we’re here to make it as easy and painless as possible. 

If your child has difficulty undergoing dental procedures, we offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedation.
