Accepting New Patients!
At Apple Tree Pediatric Dentistry, we believe that by teaching your children good dental habits at an early age we can positively affect their health, wellness and confidence for the rest of their lives. That is why Drs. Kong & Moore, and their children’s dental team have created an environment where parents can be as involved in the treatment of their children as they would like to be.
We are a pediatric dental practice specializing in the treatment of children.
We only treat children, and Drs. Kong and Moore and their pediatric dental team have had several years of additional training to be more qualified to meet children’s unique dental needs. We are also specially equipped to treat special needs children. Read more about our specially designed dental experience for children and parents.
Comprehensive Children’s Dentistry
Our warm, caring and attentive dental team provides a wide range of children’s dental treatments to ensure that your child will develop and maintain beautiful, healthy teeth. With proper and consistent dental treatment, we can not only help to prevent cavities in the future, but also teach your child good habits that will last them a lifetime!
Dental Sedation to Relax Your Child
We offer calming dental sedation options. We can administer an oral sedative or nitrous oxide to relax your child before performing any restorative dental procedure. Safe and effective, Oral Sedation allows your child to remain awake and aware, but their anxiety will be reduced for any dental procedure.
Dr. Kong is also credentialed to provide hospital dentistry for larger cases where children need to be treated in a hospital under heavy sedation.
Happy Visits for Younger Children
If your child is afraid or nervous about visiting the Dentist, ask us about our “happy visits”. This is where we introduce them to our office without dental work being done, so that they become more comfortable.
Our office incorporates some of the latest dental technology to help us treat your child comfortably, safely and efficiently.
- Low Radiation Digital X-rays: Uses 90% less radiation and provides immediate images to quickly diagnose hidden problems.
- Extra-oral Digital Bitewings and Periapicals: Our panorex machine has the capability to take localized xrays of patients teeth without placing anything uncomfortable in the mouth. This works great for young patients that are anxious or have a gag reflex and prefer not to use the conventional digital xrays that you bite down on.
- Oral Conscious Sedation: We can administer an oral sedative to relax your child before performing any restorative dental procedure. Safe and effective, Oral Sedation allows your child to remain awake and aware, but their anxiety will be reduced for any dental procedure.
- Calming Nitrous Oxide Sedation: if your child is anxious about going to the dentist, Nitrous Oxide (also known as “laughing gas”) is a safe and effective sedative agent we can use to calm your child’s fears.
- Hospital Dentistry: We are credentialed to perform dental procedures in a local hospital, where your child can be fully sedated and have dental treatment performed in a Hospital setting. The reason may be age, medical or physical necessity.
- Cosmetic “tooth-colored” Fillings: we utilize specialized composite filling material that is white, and bonds with the teeth so that it is hard to tell that a child has even had fillings!
Amenities for Kids and Parents
We designed our office with you and your child’s comfort in mind. We have games for the kids, and quiet, relaxing areas for the adults. If your child is afraid or nervous about visiting the Dentist, ask us about our “happy visits”.
