The Division of Pediatric Dentistry provides comprehensive and preventive oral health care for infants, children, teens and patients with special needs. We treat more than 5,000 pediatric patients and complete approximately 1,000 dental surgery procedures each year. For more than 40 years, our division has focused on the care of patients who have medical conditions that prevent them from receiving care in the conventional private-practice dental setting.
We provide ongoing dental care or will create a dental care plan for your child to use with your community pediatric dentist. We also provide comprehensive oral health care for children being treated at Lurie Children’s, including orthodontic services for qualifying patients.
Our dentists have the training, experience and properly equipped facility (operating room) to safely provide general anesthesia or sedation for anxious children and kids with disabilities, even those whom other dental offices could not treat. We operate a sedation clinic for patients who require sedation during dental procedures. We have many satisfied families who are grateful that their child has found a dental home.
