family of four hugging on couch l dental exams apple valley mnAt Carousel Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we often see very fearful and anxious children and understand how frustrating this can be for parents. You can be confident, however, that with our gentle, reassuring approach, most of these children become excellent dental patients once we have gained their trust. 

Benefits of Choosing a Pediatric Dentist in Apple Valley

In fact, one of the benefits of choosing a pediatric dentist in Apple Valley is that they have years of training and clinical experience in responding to the unique and diverse personalities of young patients of all ages. 

However, many of these children can also benefit from the use of dental sedation or general anesthesia. Using sedation dentistry, very anxious children, those who need complex dental treatment, or who have special health care needs can receive dental treatment in a safe, stress-free manner. 

Parents in Apple Valley appreciate having a pediatric dentist who has advanced training in working with children’s unique and varied needs. We treat children of all ages at Carousel Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, and Dr. Katie and Dr. Kyle are skilled at developing relationships that put them at ease and make oral health care a positive experience for them.
