Pediatric Services

Dr. Maria Kim believes a trip to the dentist should be fun, lighthearted, and not something to fear. The way your child is exposed to dentistry lays the groundwork for how they view dental care and dental visits for the rest of their lives.

Dr. Maria Kim and her team love caring for their patients, and work hard to make sure each child is spoken to gently, treated with respect, and cared for as if they were our own child. We use simple words to explain procedures to our patients and make sure each parent or guardian is aware of the process as well.


Pediatric Cleanings & Exams

Routine cleanings and exams are necessary to make sure your child’s teeth stay healthy throughout childhood. Our doctor recommends two cleanings a year to maintain optimal oral health.

Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays allow our doctor to get a view of your child’s teeth and jaws that they can’t see with their eyes, while keeping radiation exposure to a minimum.

Fluoride

Regular fluoride treatments help reduce your child’s risk of developing cavities and can remineralize areas where decay is starting. Our doctor believes regular fluoride treatments are an important part of treatment for most children.

Frenectomies

Frenectomies are a valuable procedure that corrects tongue-tie and prevents future periodontal problems caused by tissue pulling on the lip or gums. Dr. Maria Kim can perform this procedure in-office with just a little anesthetic.

Pediatric Sealants

Sealants help protect your child’s teeth from decay by filling in the grooved biting surfaces of your child’s teeth, making them easier to clean. Dr. Maria Kim applies this light-cured material in minutes, and the procedure requires no anesthesia.

Sports Mouthguards

Sports mouthguards prevent dental injuries when worn during contact sports or other potentially dangerous activities. A custom-fit mouthguard can save your child’s teeth and prevent extensive dental treatment.

Tooth-colored Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings offer a durable, more natural looking option for your child’s restorations. Made from composite resin, they are strong, durable, and perfect for smaller teeth.

Tooth Extractions

While we focus on helping your child keep their teeth for a lifetime, sometimes an extraction is necessary. Whether it’s extensive decay, overcrowding or an impacted tooth, Dr. Maria Kim can help you and your child understand the procedure and answer any questions you have.
