Pediatric Dentistry in
West Columbia

We offer pediatric dentistry that is tailored to your child’s needs and personality. We know that children get nervous about coming to the dentist, so our team is friendly and gentle, and we all use kid-friendly language to help children feel knowledgeable about their teeth and smiles. We want your child’s visits to be comfortable, effective, educational, and fun because good dental experiences early in childhood lead to a lifetime of healthy and happy smiles.

Your Child’s First Visit

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit the dentist when their first tooth erupts or by age one. Routine visits with our dentists in West Columbia help your child form proper brushing and flossing techniques which lead to beautiful and confident smiles.

At your child’s first visit, we’ll walk you and your child through the office, let your child see, and even touch, some of the equipment we use, and address any concerns or questions you have. We take our time with your child very seriously because we understand the importance of a healthy and confident smile for children and young adults.

Pediatric Dental Services

Kids have their own needs when it comes to their oral health. Children’s dentistry involves providing positive experiences that help younger patients feel comfortable in the dental chair and educate them on the importance of a healthy smile. Our doctors enjoy working with kids to get them excited about their smiles, and providing them with the foundation for a lifetime of good dental health.

Throughout your child’s checkup, our team of professionals helps your child become familiar with our equipment and uses kid-friendly language to keep your child involved. We want your child to have a positive dental experience to encourage great oral health habits later in life, so we do all we can to help your child — and you — feel at ease with us.

We invite and encourage you to join your child in the treatment room to help him or her feel comfortable. Our dentists will walk you both through our findings and recommendations for at-home dental care.

It’s so easy for food particles to get caught on the chewing surfaces of back teeth, eventually causing decay. We often place dental sealants on pre-molars and molars to fill in the grooves and protect your child’s teeth for years to come.

We use fluoride rinses after cleanings to fight off decay and strengthen the tooth enamel. We also encourage you to use a fluoride toothpaste at home to provide your child’s teeth with even more protection between dentist appointments.

As your child’s teeth erupt, it’s important to care for them properly at home between visits to our office. Our team will show you and your child proper techniques for brushing as teeth come in. We’ll also show you how to floss effectively when the time comes.

Awesome experience! Very professional and friendly staff, especially Felicia and Patty. Patty was very gentle and thorough with my teeth cleaning as well as knowledgeable and was able to answer all of my questions regarding oral hygiene and gum care. Will definitely be returning for future dental needs and would recommend to anyone!

I would highly recommend Carolina Smiles to any of my family or friends. The waiting area is complete with complimentary bottled water, hot tea and coffee. I have told numerous coworkers about the amazing staff. They are very easy to talk to and they make you feel comfortable and treat you with respect. Thank you Alisha, Jalisa, Felicia and Melanie for another memorable experience!!

Another great experience at CSFD yesterday! Melanie, Kim M., Loreal, Shellie, and Dr. J took great care of me, as usual, but once again went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and happy. I have referred coworkers and friends because of their staff.
