Pediatric Dentistry That Will Make Your Child Smile

At Highlands Ranch Smiles, we love our young patients and want to see them often! We believe the best way to establish a lifelong habit of regular dental visits is to build a happy relationship with your children’s first dentist. We want your children to have a positive association with the dentist, so we do everything we can to ensure they do!

To help ensure a lasting, healthy smile, bring your child in for their first dental visit by their first birthday and for regular dental exams every six months after that.

For an appointment with a kid-friendly dentist, call our Highlands Ranch, CO dentist office at 720-644-8186.

Our Children’s Dentistry Team Is Crazy About Kids

Our three doctors and entire team enjoy working with kids. Dr. Michelle Haynes is the mother of two toddlers and has had advanced training in pediatric dentistry. In fact, Dr. Haynes says one of her best days as a dentist was having a 6-year-old patient say to her after getting a tooth filling: “We are done? That was easy.”

Many of us are parents ourselves, so we are never flustered by your children’s out-of-left-field questions or even occasional tears.

Our team enjoys educating your youngsters about good dental hygiene, whether it is showing them proper tooth brushing techniques or talking to them about how too much sugar isn’t good for their teeth.

We’ve even set up a special area for children in our spacious waiting room, complete with kid-friendly movies they can watch!

We Provide Kid-Friendly Hours

We offer extended hours at our Highlands Ranch, CO dentist office to make it easy for you to bring in your children before school or after baseball practice. We open at 8 a.m. Monday through Thursday and at 7 a.m. on Friday. We’re open until 6 p.m. on Monday and until 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday. These appointments fill up fast, so schedule in advance!

Our schedule not only makes it simple to see your family for regular dental appointments, but also to work in any dental emergencies.

Protecting Your Children’s Teeth

We often recommend two treatments designed to give your children an extra edge in the battle against tooth decay. We just brush these treatments onto their teeth, so there is no discomfort. They can help cavity-prone adults too!

  • We can apply a fluoride varnish to help prevent cavities. It goes on sticky but quickly dries.
  • We can also apply thin plastic coatings on your child’s back teeth that help protect them from dental decay. We apply the clear sealants and then “cure” them with a special light.
