Centrally located in South Jordan, pediatric dentists of Southridge Pediatric Dentistry have helped many children develop proper dental habits and improve their overall oral health. Our practice focuses solely on children’s dental care, providing a variety of preventive and restorative dental services.
Led by dentists who are board certified in pediatric dentistry, our team delivers excellent, kid-friendly dental treatment and procedures. These include:
With routine dental cleanings, we don’t only keep your child’s teeth healthy, but we also check them for any signs of potential oral problems. In turn, we can spot those problems early and stop them from progressing further. In addition, with these regular visits, we help get your child into the habit of taking good care of their teeth.
Dental X-rays are safe, painless diagnostic tools used to find cavities between and on the child’s teeth, evaluate injuries after a dental trauma, diagnose periodontal disease, check the status of developing teeth, and more.
Children tend to eat and drink a lot of sugary food and sweetened beverages. These sugars, along with plaque bacteria in the mouth, form harmful acid that can cause tooth decay and eventually erode the tooth enamel. While we cannot stop kids from eating sweets, we can help protect their teeth against harmful acid in their mouth through a fluoride treatment.
Orthodontic Space Maintainers
If your child prematurely lost their baby tooth due to dental trauma or tooth cavities, you can count on us to help ensure their permanent tooth will still erupt healthily. We provide orthodontic space maintainers to preserve the empty tooth space and keep it ready for the permanent tooth that will soon come in.
Our practice also provides sealants, white fillings, sedation, and other dental services that will address any special needs your child may have.
Our Practice Philosophy
Here at Southridge Pediatric Dentistry, we are dedicated to meeting each of our patient’s dental needs. We make sure to maintain a fun, friendly environment for children at our clinic. After all, we want our patients to see dental visits as a comfortable experience—something they can look forward to rather than fear.
In addition, we recognize that parents are an integral part of a child’s oral health. Our practice welcomes your involvement and presence during appointments. We will also provide you with tips and advice on how you can make oral care a fun activity at home.
