Healthy Teeth and Gums Start with Prevention

The key to excellent oral health is prevention. At Sherwood Pediatric Dentistry, we focus on prevention through parent and patient education. We don’t only want your child coming into our office to have dental problems fixed. We have the same goal of encouraging healthy teeth and gums throughout childhood. We love to see our patients with a healthy smile!

Revive Your Child’s Smile with Quality Restorative Treatments

Despite your and your child’s best efforts, it’s still possible for your child to develop a cavity or incur dental trauma. When this is the case, Dr. Sherwood will recommend a restorative dentistry treatment to repair damage and restore the tooth. With our advanced and modern techniques and technology like the Solea Laser, your child will spend less time in treatment and have a pleasant experience.

Pediatric Sedation & Pain Control

Our child-friendly office, behavior guidance techniques, and experienced team help keep our patients calm and comfortable. However, we understand that some patients may benefit from some level of sedation. At Sherwood Pediatric Dentistry, we offer safe and effective pediatric sedation like nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and in-office IV sedation with a Board Certified Pediatric Anesthesiologist. Dr. Sherwood is also able to provide dental care under general anesthesia at Dell Children’s Hospital for children who have more medically complex situations. If you’re interested in discussing pediatric sedation before your child’s treatment, please let us know.
