Children's Dental Health

We place high priority on your child's total health care because maintaining good oral health is important to the general health and well-being of your child. . Selecting the Pediatric Dental Center at Yale provides us with the opportunity to educate you on the importance of good oral hygiene in order to keep your child free from dental/oral disease and to intercede with comprehensive restorative care (fillings, crowns, extractions) when your child's dental status is compromised. We focus on prevention, early detection and treatment of dental disease, and keep current on the latest advances in dentistry for children. For more information on children's dental health, visit the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
