The prevention of cavities and gum disease begins with the Infant Oral Health Exam and continues through routine cleanings, check-ups, and dental education at our offices. A healthy mouth makes for a happy kid!More about Preventative Care
There are many factors that may affect the onset of decay or disease, often despite the best efforts of both parents and kids. After examining a child’s oral health, we thoroughly discuss treatment procedures that promote long-term dental health.More about Restorative Care
Our first priority with every dental procedure is comfort and safety. Dr. Becky and Dr. Erin consult with every parent in choosing the most appropriate option for sedation and our staff is specially trained in techniques to reduce fears and anxiety in children.More about Sedation Dentistry
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that all children see a dentist by their first birthday. These visits are highly beneficial for parents, as our providers can review important growth and development milestones as well as diet and hygiene review.More about Infant Oral Health Exams
Our doctors and staff treat infection, abscess, as well as trauma for both primary and permanent teeth. Some dental emergencies should be treated as quickly as possible, and Dr.'s Becky and Erin are available after hours for emergency calls.
South Hill Pediatric Dentistry loves the opportunity to educate parents, helping them make confident choices for their children's oral health. Becky and Erin consult with parents before any treatment procedures.
Children have thoughts and feelings about going to the dentist. We greet every child with understanding and respect, tailoring visits to their individual needs. It starts with a friendly conversation and gentle oral health exam.
Scavenger hunts, video games, puzzles, and interactions with our warm and loving staff. A child’s first experience of the South Hill Pediatric Dentistry offices is often the most important. Think of it like a play date.
We always encourage parents and children to stop by and catch up with us whenever they’re in our neighborhood. We also make a priority of engaging kids with the importance of oral health through contests and activities.
The staff at South Hill Pediatric Dentistry are amazing. They made my daughter so comfortable she forgot she was even at the dentist. I would recommend this office to anyone and everyone! When your child is excited to go to the dentist, you know you've found a great place.
Mimi (the hygienist) took plenty of time showing her the equipment, and made sure she had our daughter engage and excited before she started cleaning her teeth. And Dr. Becky was great at alleviating our daughter's (and our!) concerns, too.
We've taken our daughter here since her very first appointment at 1 year old. She absolutely LOVES it and I'm always impressed by the staff. They're kind, gentle, patient and caring. They really know how to take care of kids and their teeth!
From now until February 11th, we're inviting all the little ones in our extended SHPD family to decorate valentines. If you don't have an appointment with us in the next couple weeks, that's okay. Just go ahead and decorate one at home, then drop it off with us!See more Activities
