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 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.

Let’s discuss how we can help your child improve their oral health.
A Range of Kid-Friendly Dental Services
Here at Southridge Pediatric Dentistry, we concentrate on:
From oral assessments and dental X-rays to fluoride treatment and orthodontic space maintainers, we provide high-quality preventive oral care services. We suggest bringing your children to us at age one or six months after their first baby tooth erupts. That way, we can monitor their tooth development and maintain oral health from the start.
If your child has a cavity or a broken tooth from an injury, we can help. Our practice performs a range of restorative dentistry techniques that can bring back the natural look, feel, and function of your child’s affected tooth. For one, we provide white fillings after removing tooth decay. We also provide orthodontic space maintainers to ensure your child’s permanent teeth will erupt healthily even if they lost their baby teeth too early.
Dr. Farnsworth and Dr. Roth have more than twenty years of pediatric dental experience. They, along with our staff, know how to address any special needs your child may have. If your kid has dental anxiety or phobia, for instance, our dentists may provide sedation to calm them down. Our practice also provides hospital dentistry should your child require medical care while having the dental procedure they need.
Fun, Comfortable Environment
Here at Southridge Pediatric Dentistry, we understand that encouraging good oral health requires us to create a fun, welcoming, and friendly environment. So, we keep our office kid-friendly to make your children feel relaxed and comfortable whenever they visit us. We want them to see trips to the dentist as something they can look forward to, rather than fear. This way, we can further instill the importance of good oral health—and this, of course, will help them keep a healthy set of teeth as they grow older.
