Pediatric Dentistry

Healthy Smiles for Children with Pediatric Dentistry in Madison, IN

Educating our children about proper oral hygiene can have a beneficial effect on their health throughout their lives. Getting young ones to commit to a thorough and consistent routine can be a difficult process though if trust isn’t established early.

At our Madison dental practice, Dr. Zac Gilbertson makes sure your child knows they have control over the treatment process to alleviate any apprehension. If you’re looking for a compassionate pediatric dentist in Madison dedicated to promoting positive experiences, call our office today to set up an appointment.


Establishing Trustmadison pediatric dentistry taking care of your childs smile

Before children undergo any procedure, we like to spend time familiarizing them with how things work at our Madison practice. We want your little one to be used to the sights, sounds, and smells in the office to ease any intimidation they may feel before undergoing any treatment.

Part of the introduction process includes describing the instruments so your child has a better understanding of what happens during treatment. We also take the opportunity to counsel both the child and their parent on recommended dietary and health habits.

Pediatric Treatment Options

Parents are welcome to stay with their child throughout the consultation and introduction process, but it’s generally more efficient to have them sit in the reception area from during a procedure. We find that children tend to openly share their needs when talking one-on-one.

Once the actual cleaning and exam take place, your child can rest assured that if they experience any discomfort, they simply signal for us to stop what we’re doing. At this time, we answer questions and alleviate any concerns to help reestablish their comfort. We offer nitrous oxide to aid in relaxing anxious young patients, particularly when they undergo more extensive treatment.

Your child will receive comprehensive care when you bring them to see Dr. Gilbertson. We offer a variety of dental services for children, including:

  • Tooth-colored Fillings
  • Fluoride Treatment
  • Sealants
  • Extractions
  • Pulpotomies

For mild to moderate cases of misalignment, we practice early and interceptive orthodontics. When complexities arise in your child’s smile, we refer to a trusted local specialist for a more comprehensive approach to treatment.
