Pediatric Dental Group has been serving the dental needs of children in Hawaii since 1966. They offer dental care that is specially tailored for young children. Their gentle yet effective approach will give children the thorough dental care they need in a nonthreatening environment. 

Dental care is important in terms of oral health, function, and aesthetics. That’s why children need to start visiting the dentist from a young age. Pediatric Dental Group is the perfect place to start your children on their journey to oral health and dental hygiene. Without regular care, children’s teeth may require emergency dental care. Avoid an emergency visit with regular dental exams and teeth cleaning.

Pediatric dentistry is different than traditional dentistry. The dentists at Pediatric Dental Group have been specially trained for an additional two to three years after dental school to be able to effectively treat young children. This training involves learning to customize care based on a child’s individual maturity and emotional needs. That means that pediatric dentists are the best choice for your unique child’s dental care. Bringing your child to a pediatric dentist early will set them up for a lifetime of oral health. They will not only receive premium dental care, but they will also learn the techniques to properly care for their own teeth between visits. 

To give your child the dental care they deserve, schedule an appointment at Pediatric Dental Group by calling (808) 593-8828 for the Honolulu office or (808) 245-2131 for the Lihue office.
