A Safe Atmosphere

Providing a safe atmosphere for your child is our number one priority. Our practice follows the safety standards established by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Dental Education

We take special care to help our patients understand why dental hygiene is important. Our dental education was designed to instill the best dental practices in each child. Visit our Kid’s Club page to download activities to get started today!

Open-Door Policy

Parents are not only welcome, but encouraged to be with their child throughout the entire dental appointment. This provides comfort and ease to both child and parent! We value our parents and want them to be involved.

In our office, our pediatric dentists and general dentists who focus on children know the importance of a positive dental experience. We consider parents and guardians to be a part of our team and we welcome them to be with their child throughout the entire dental appointment.

Our team also understands the unique needs of special needs children. Please inform us of any child’s needs when making an appointment so that we can provide the proper provider and treatment plan.

Lincolnton Parent Reviews

They are wonderful with my children! Always friendly and very helpful! My kids love coming to the dentist.

Hayley R.

Lincolnton Parent

Lincolnton Pediatric Dentistry went over and beyond my expectations. They were very precise about a treatment plan that I was comfortable with, not one that was the easiest for them to pursue. That alone is remarkable; now day’s it’s hard to find service that puts every patient first without considering them as a number. ALL of my friends and family will be recommended there for future reference. Thank You for the amazing care you provided for my daughter.

Ami B.

Lincolnton Parent

Love how patient they was with my kids. They were very scared to get a fill in today but after the hygienist talked to my daughter and calmed her down she wasn’t scared and thinks she never got a shot today! Love this dentist!
