Bringing your infant, toddler, adolescent, or young adult to the pediatric dentists at KPD is one of the key steps towards maintaining your child’s overall health and giving her/him one more tool to achieve wellness and happiness in life. A Pediatric Dentist is a specialist that promotes the dental and overall oral health of children. The primary objective of Pediatric Dentistry is to ensure your child’s primary teeth, gums, and jaws stay healthy and free of decay and other diseases, to properly evolve and allow for healthy permanent teeth and associated oral environment.
As such, a Pediatric Dentist is best qualified in preventing, restoring, and maintaining the unique oral health conditions of children before they achieve adulthood. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that a dental visit be scheduled by the time the child reaches 6 months of age.

A sealant is a clear or shaded protective plastic coating (resin) that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (premolars and molars), as this is where most of the decay (cavities) occurs in children.
As mentioned before, in the unfortunate case of an emergency, please always call 911 first and/or take your child to the Emergency Room (ER). You can call our staff later on. Read more for reasons for emergencies...
