Children’s Dentistry

3rd Floor

Where beautiful smiles begin!

At UAB Pediatric Dentistry, we work to provide every family with quality, comprehensive oral health care directed by board-certified or board-eligible specialists in pediatric dentistry. Our goal is to clearly communicate with our patients and families, focusing on the prevention of childhood dental issues so you do not have to see us as often.

We strive to provide every family with:

  • Quality care directed by board-certified or board-eligible specialists in pediatric dentistry;
  • Clear communication with our patients and their families; and
  • Prevention of childhood dental issues so you don't have to see us as often.

Services Provided

The Children’s Clinic at the UAB School of Dentistry provides comprehensive oral health care for our patients. Prevention of dental disease is at the core of all we do, therefore, we provide Well Baby Dental Visits, routine cleanings and checkups, sealants, fluoride treatments, interceptive orthodontics, and most importantly, personalized counseling for each patient addressing diet, hygiene, and other issues that can reduce the risk of a child ever having a cavity or other dental problems.

However, if dental problems do arise, we provide restorations, primary tooth nerve therapy, primary tooth extractions, and space management. We have extensive experience coaching children who are fearful of dental treatment by utilizing behavior guidance techniques recognized by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. While we emphasize verbal techniques that focus on how we communicate with a child, we can also use more advanced options such as Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) sedation, oral sedation, and even general anesthesia depending on the specific needs of the child.
