About Our Sponsor, Children’s Dental Cottage:
Specializing in Dentistry for infants, children, teens and individuals with special needs. We can assist in home dental care at the start of the eruption of the first tooth through anticipatory guidance. We provide preventive dental care including sealants and early orthodontic intervention. We can provide sedation methods of nitrous oxide, oral sedation, IV sedation, and general anesthesia for those who have anxieties and behaviors that warrant such methods for treatment. We also offer SDF treatment for young children who may not have the capacity to complete dental treatment in office and sedation efforts may be of high risk for the child. We consider the parent(s) to be an integral part in assisting in determining the right treatment for their chid(ren).
