Here at Hines Little Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, we understand how much you value the bright, healthy smiles of your little ones. We also understand many of the challenges that come with the proper care and maintenance of those smiles, and we are here to help.
Dr. Hines and our staff of caring professionals is trained and experienced to give you and your child the excellent care you deserve. We have been serving the Columbus, Ohio area for several years, and specialize in a preventive approach to pediatric dentistry. Some of our services include the following:
- Regular checkups
- Fluoride treatments
- Nutrition consultation
- Proper daily dental care
- Athletic mouth guards
- Prevention of tooth decay in infants
- Evaluation of dental growth and development
- Oral health education
- Sedation dentistry (including both laughing gas and general anesthesia)
- Dental sealants
- Guidance of erupting teeth
- EZ-Pedo Kids Zirconia Crowns
- All other preventive pediatric dental needs
It is important to begin regular dental visits early. In fact, our youngest patients begin visits at the age of one year, or about six months after their first teeth erupt. We treat every child with the kind of patience, kindness and gentleness a parent would want for their child, with a range of options to choose from, which enable a feeling of security and comfort. Starting from a young age, it is important for children to take good care of their gums and teeth, so that they can develop good speech habits, nutrition, adult teeth, and ultimately, a great self-image.
We have an excellent reward system in place that fosters an excitement for dental care in children and teens that come to our office. With our focus on positive reinforcement, your kids will be eager to brush and floss, and will want to come back to see us again. Children who are otherwise hesitant about doctors and dentists love to come in and celebrate with us, as they learn and gain responsibility over their own oral health. (See our testimonials for just a few of these numerous examples!)
Dr Hines, Dr Anderson and Dr Vollmar, along with our entire staff, are committed to providing the level of care your little one deserves. Our fun, friendly environment is sure to put your child at ease, and help them create a healthy attitude toward oral hygiene. Our gentle and rewarding approach ensures that even the most nervous children will feel comfortable and confident in the capable hands of our providers. We look forward to working with you! If you have any questions feel free to call us. We are happy to help assist you with any questions you might have, and also to schedule an appointment for your child’s first visit! Thanks for stopping by!
