Children’s Dentistry

Making you ready for all those smiles

Children’s dentistry is the dental specialty encompassing comprehensive dental care for all children, from infancy through adolescence

A children’s dental specialist like Dr. Thomas Bitner is a practitioner who, after becoming a general dentist, has completed an additional two years of post-doctoral training in the recognition and treatment of children’s dental and orthodontic problems. Specialty education includes child psychology, behavior guidance, preventative techniques, restorative dentistry, interceptive and comprehensive orthodontic care (braces), and the treatment of children with special needs.

What to Expect

A thorough exam will be done to evaluate the heath of your child’s teeth, gums and mouth. We will evaluate your child’s growth and development and check to make sure your child’s oral development is on track. Our office will make child specific recommendations for the need of sealants, fluoride and other services based on your child’s individual needs and habits. Nitrous Oxide, “Laughing Gas,” is available.

Our pediatric dentist is trained to evaluate proper positioning of teeth and jaw structures, checking for the influence of any habits your child may have.

We strive to make each visit fun, educational, and memorable.
