Our welcoming Scottsdale pediatric dentist offers judgement-free dentistry and holistic care for young children of all backgrounds (including those with special needs such as Autism.) We believe that it’s possible to have a healthy smile, regardless of your family genetics!
Dr. Candace Veneberg is a Board-Certified Pediatric Dentist and retired Army veteran who is highly experienced in the best preventative, holistic dentistry methods for your child today. She and the rest of her caring team of parents understand what it’s like to raise small children. We only recommend the same types of care to a patient that we would want for our own families!
As of 2019, all of our materials are mercury-free! We provide BPA free and fluoride free options upon request as well.
While you’re here with your family for an appointment, we offer a convenient play area for small children, and televisions with video games for older kids.
Family and Pediatric Dental Services and Options for Kids Near You (Even in an Emergency)
Exams & Cleanings — A healthy smile starts with preventative care to pinpoint concerns before they become more aggressive. We recommend a checkup for all children every six months. We’ll also take periodic digital X-rays as needed to evaluate their oral development and screen for decay. Radiation-free laser cavity detection is also available.
White Fillings — If your child has a cavity, small white fillings offer a minimally-invasive alternative to traditional silver restoration types. Treating the decay early keeps dental costs low and preserves as much healthy tooth structure as possible.
Fluoride — While we’re primarily a fluoride-free practice, we may occasionally recommend supplementing or treatments with this natural mineral in children who are especially cavity prone. The decision is up to you as the parent regardless.
Education — Our local pediatric dentist is committing to helping your child enjoy the best and healthiest smile possible. Our preventative approach to oral health means equipping you and your child with the resources needed to reduce and eliminate the risk of tooth decay, oral infections, and myofunctional irregularities.
Orthodontic Screenings — Early orthodontic intervention doesn’t just affect your child’s tooth alignment. It also addresses pediatric sleep disorders and complications such as narrow airways. Growth modification techniques enhance proper orofacial development, speech patterns, and quality sleep. We also work with a myofunctional therapist!
If your child is anxious or especially wiggly, we can use nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to safely help them relax during any dental procedure!
Tips for Parents and Children for Oral Care by a Dentist
As a parent, you’re welcome to come with your children back into the clinical area of our office anytime during visits. We are very “parent-friendly” and believe the better educated you are about your child’s oral health, the more informed you’ll be to make important decisions about their smile.
Information for Affordable Insurance for Your Child
Our Scottsdale pediatric dentist accepts most dental care insurance plans. Flexible financing is also available so that your child can get the care he or she needs right away.
