Together, we are able to develop a treatment plan to fit the precise needs of your child.
We offer the full spectrum of care for dentistry related conditions to children ranging from infancy to age 18.
In addition to treating children who are well, our pediatric dentistry staff has experience providing care to children with special medical needs such as autism spectrum disorders, bipolar disorder, Down syndrome and cerebral palsy. We also work with children who have behavioral concerns, such as anxiety or nervousness. As we are part of Boston Children's Hospital we also provide dental care for children with very rare syndromes.
Our clinicians are familiar with the dental aspects that go along with each unique condition. Since our program is located within Boston Children’s, we’re also able to work directly with the child’s medical team and gain digital access to his or her medical records. Working closely with all members of your child's health care team allows us to provide the best possible dental care.
The Department of Dentistry at Boston Children’s is one of the first pediatric dentist programs in the country and one of the biggest outpatient departments in the hospital. We see up to 25,000 children each year. Boston Children’s is the primary teaching hospital of Harvard School of Dental Medicine and all of our residents go through an extremely selective to ensure that every child receives top-notch quality care.
The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
