Kind Words from Parents Near Cherry Creek

We have a 1 year old and didn’t know what to expect with his 1st dental visit. Dr. Bowman was wonderful. Our son is often nervous around strangers but was very comfortable and offering up plenty of smiles. In addition to the exam we got some great information about staring off his dental health strong and will be sure to head back every 6 months! The location is great for our lives and the hours of operation also fit well into our schedule as working parents. The entire staff was very friendly and you can tell they really have a focus on children and their wellbeing.

Frequently Asked Questions, Answered!

If you still have questions for our board-certified pediatric dentist near Cherry Creek, you’re in the right place! If you have a specific question about our practice or your child’s oral health, then don’t hesitate to give us a call. If you’d simply like to learn more general information, like what to do if your child needs emergency dental care, then keep reading for the answers to a few of the most frequently asked questions we hear from parents.

How do I get emergency dental care for my child?

From persistent toothaches to completely knocked-out teeth, dental injuries can be both stressful and painful. The good news is that you can significantly reduce your child’s chances of experiencing one by enforcing good dental habits, like wearing a mouthguard during sports, brushing each morning and evening, and getting a dental checkup and cleaning every six months.

Unfortunately, they aren’t entirely preventable. If your child sustains a dental injury, then the first thing you should do is assess the damage. Difficulty breathing, uncontrollable bleeding, and a fractured jaw are just a few potentially life-threatening symptoms that require medical attention. In this case, you should call 911 or head to the nearest emergency room. If the dental injury is more straightforward, like a chipped or knocked-out tooth, then call our practice right away. With morning, lunchtime, and after-school hours, we’ll do our best to treat your child the very same day.

How do I find the best pediatric dental office?

The journey to finding the right pediatric dental office in your area begins with one question, “What’s important to you?” For some parents, it’s proximity. Maybe your child goes to Inspire Preschool or Steck Elementary School and you’re looking for a practice that’s close by. For other parents, it’s the expertise of the dentist or if they welcome dental insurance.

Our team at Wash Park Pediatric Dentistry has some good news: we meet all those criteria and more! In addition to being less than a 15-minute drive from Cherry Creek, we have a board-certified pediatric dentist and welcome virtually all PPO plans. To learn more about why you should choose us, don’t hesitate to give us a call!

What do you do if you can't afford a pediatric dentist?

The best way to make your child’s dental care affordable is by prioritizing prevention. If you skip their biannual checkups and cleanings, there’s a good chance they’ll develop tooth decay and other serious oral health concerns. Don’t worry – our team also does our part to help make even routine visits more affordable. To begin, we welcome dental insurance and will do our part to maximize your available benefits. If you don’t have dental insurance, then ask our team about flexible financing. That way, you can space out your payments into budget-friendly chunks.
