About Chillicothe Pediatric Dentsitry

 

Why Choose a "Pediatric Dentist" for My Child's Dental Care?

Just as you use a pediatrician to care for child's medical needs, a pediatric dentist is a specially trained dentist in the unique art of treating children's dental needs. The staff at Chillicothe Pediatric Dentistry cater to children daily, navigating them through the process of receiving care, and teaching them that going to the dentist is nothing to fear. We at Chillicothe Pediatric Dentistry have extensive experience in the care of the child patient, and we pride ourselves in providing the best dental care for children in Ross County and its surrounding areas.


Training and Staff Experience

Pediatric dentists must undergo two to three more years of specialty training beyond their dental school experience to become specialists in the field. As such, the doctor and staff at Chillicothe Pediatric Dentistry are uniquely qualified at providing care for children: from the use of kid-friendly behavior-modification techniques to guide them through the treatment process, to the use (by the doctor) of age-appropriate sedatives to help the child-patient through more difficult procedures, when necessary. It is rather unusual for patients of Chillicothe Pediatric Dentistry to have a sustained fear of going to the dentist. Rather, our dentist and staff work hard to develop confident and comfortable patients.


Do I Need a Referral To Take My Child to a Pediatric Dentist?

The truth is, the vast majority of children in the USA are treated by "general practitioners" in dentistry. Pediatric dentists, due to their limited number, have traditionally been a referral source for regular dentists who were not able to comfortably provide dental care for their young charges. Our office is a primary care provider, which means that many children start here for their initial dental experiences. Referrals are always welcome, and after treatment has been provided, parents may choose to return to their own dentist for their child's care. At Chillicothe Pediatric Dentistry, second opinions are always free.


Experience the Difference

From the relaxed and kid-friendly feel of our office, to the manner in which we help children through treatment, we're sure that you'll agree that Dr. Griffin and the staff at Chillicothe Pediatric Dentistry are the place for children to receive excellent and proficient dental care.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing our practice for your dental care.
