Gentle Dental of Springfield
760 W Sproul Road, Suite 100, Springfield, PA 19064
If you are looking for a children’s dentist in Springfield, our practice has built its reputation on providing caring and committed treatment to children from six months old and up. We ensure that children receive the oral care they need to keep their teeth and gums as healthy as possible. Our expert dental team is the best answer to the common question, “Where can I find a gentle children’s dentist near me?”
Dentistry for children is different from that for adults. Your children’s dentist has undergone the training needed for general dentistry, along with additional coursework of at least two years that is specifically designed to provide the skills needed to work with young patients. Our team of pediatric dentists will provide you with treatment that is tailored to your child’s needs and your budget.
Your child’s first visit to our office should be scheduled as soon as you see the first tooth erupt through his or her gums. We will evaluate the health of your child’s gums and will look for any problems that might create issues, immediately or in the future. Our team will help to make this first visit to a kids’ dentist as painless and pleasant as possible. We specialize in caring and compassionate dentistry for kids of all ages and will provide the most advanced dental care to your child.
Our kids dental care team will typically perform a visual examination of your child’s teeth and gums. If needed, we may also take X-rays of your child’s teeth to determine whether there are any misalignments of the jaw or teeth. This also allows us to check for cavities and other dental problems. Depending on how old your child is, he or she might be able to sit on your lap for the examination instead of in a dental chair.
We offer a full range of dental services for children. Some of our most common services are:

Baby teeth need special care. In general, we recommend brushing your child’s teeth as soon as he or she has one tooth and to floss as soon as your child has two teeth in close proximity to each other. Most dental experts recommend brushing twice daily and avoiding sugary drinks or foods before naptime and bedtime. This will reduce the risk of baby bottle tooth decay and will help your baby’s teeth stay healthy.
If your child has a toothache, it is important to call our office as soon as possible to make sure your child gets treatment to relieve the pain. Toothaches can be caused by tooth decay, injuries or infections in the gums. We will diagnose the cause of the pain and provide you with the most effective treatment options.
