Stopping Problems Before They Start
At Poplin Pediatric Dentistry, we focus primarily on preventing dental problems by educating parents and kids about the need for conscientious oral health habits outside of the dental office.
When your child feels 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 issues from ever developing.
Treatments like dental sealants, fluoride applications, space maintainers, and custom athletic mouthguards also add an extra layer of protection. Even adults may not have the correct process for brushing and flossing, so we are always happy to demonstrate proper techniques during each visit.
Taking care of your oral and general health can be fun and satisfying, and it can prevent painful or costly dental procedures in the future.

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 tooth-colored fillings, dental crowns, or cosmetic 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 dental sedation options for treatment. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is a mild sedative 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 throughout the dental process.
In some instances, a child may benefit from in-office 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.
Convenient, Quality Dental Care
The combination of services offered at Poplin Pediatric Dentistry is designed to protect and improve your children’s oral health in one convenient location. We’re committed to staying current with new treatments and technologies to provide your family with the highest quality dentistry available.

Advanced State-of-the-Art Dental Technology
At Poplin Pediatric Dentistry, we are dedicated to staying on the front lines of dental technology so that your child’s oral health and well-being are top-notch. We have gentle laser dentistry treatments that ensure consistent and reliable results.
We utilize Solea for hard- and soft- tissue procedures that prove to be painless and silent. Your child can feel comfortable during a filling and even throughout a complex surgery. Due to the gentle nature of the laser system, most children do not require local anesthesia.
Our Austin patients can enjoy our extensive training and dental education blended with top-of-the-line dental technology.
Children's Dental Emergencies
At Poplin Pediatric Dentistry, we understand how dental emergencies can happen at the worst moment. No parent likes to see their child in pain, which is why we do our utmost to treat dental emergencies as soon as they occur. We always encourage patients to bring in their child if they experience pain, but dental emergencies can also include:
- Unexpected toothache
- A broken, fractured, or cracked tooth
- Lost tooth
If your child experiences a broken tooth after a sports injury or unexpected jaw pain, please give our office a call immediately so we can see them the same day. We want our Austin patients to be as safe and healthy as possible, even if they have never been our patient before. We always hope that first-time emergency dental patients will continue to see us, but we will never disrupt the necessary oral health service to get your child's smile back on track.
