Parents have a lot to consider when looking for a dentist for their child. It is important to find a professional who’s compassionate and attentive to children's needs. But it’s equally important to choose a dental home that offers a variety of pediatric services and superior dental care.
At Poplin Pediatric Dentistry, you will find we offer it all! While our focus is pediatric dentistry, we also provide Phase 1 orthodontics as well as general dentistry needs. As a pediatric dentist, Dr. Jared Poplin treats children of all ages with preventive treatments that strengthen and protect their teeth.
Stopping Problems Before They Start
We focus primarily on preventing dental problems by educating parents and kids about the need for conscientious oral health habits. When your child is comfortable with us, Dr. Poplin will perform a preliminary cavity risk assessment. This helps us develop an appropriate treatment plan by identifying areas that may become a problem in the future.
Our team strongly encourages regular dental cleanings and exams as the best way to prevent many problems from ever developing. Treatments like dental sealants, fluoride application, and custom athletic mouth guards also add an extra layer of protection.
Gentle Children’s Dentistry
The easiest way we can gain your child’s trust is by putting their comfort and well-being first. When a tooth is damaged or decayed, we will do everything we can to protect and restore it. This may include fillings, crowns, or esthetic dental bonding.
We have been working with children for many years. If your child is fearful or needs a more complex procedure, we can offer various options for treatment. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is mild sedation that is safe for children and is appropriate for many in-office treatments. Your child will not go to sleep with nitrous oxide, but he or she will just feel very relaxed.
In certain cases, a child may benefit from in-office oral sedation or in-hospital general anesthesia. This is especially effective for a child who has special needs, requires multiple procedures, or just has a problem sitting still in the dental chair. We are affiliated with Dell Children’s Hospital and Bailey’s Square Surgical Center and work alongside a trained anesthesiologist who will oversee your child’s sedation while Dr. Poplin completes necessary dental work.
We're also pleased to offer orthodontic treatment designed to promote a healthier, happier smile. From early orthodontic evaluations and space maintainers for young children to braces for your teen, we’ll work with you to find the most appropriate treatment
