Sedation dentistry available
It’s normal for kids to get anxious when going to the dentist. We can provide mild sedatives during dental procedures. In cases of severe anxiety, we can also provide services under general anesthesia in the hospital setting.


What to expect

Services in our pediatric resident clinics are provided by licensed dentists who are receiving advanced training in pediatric care from faculty at the School of Dentistry. Here’s what you can expect when you visit:

  • A comfortable environment - Our pediatric clinics are set up just for kids, with special touches to make their visit as comfortable as possible.
  • Support for special needs - Caring for special needs patients calls for compassion and understanding. We work with parents or caregivers to meet the needs of patients and make necessary accommodations.
  • Affordable dental care - Our fees are about a third less that what you would pay in a private dentist’s office. We accept most major dental insurance plans, Medicare (medical only), Medicaid and KCHIP. An interest-free payment plan is also available.
