Pediatric Dentist in West Reno, NV

Children’s Dentist in Reno

Staff holds a stuffed dragon for a new patient who came to see the pediatric dentist. At West Reno Dental, we’ve been delivering family-friendly dentistry for over 30 years. Instead of searching out a pediatric dentist, many people bring their kids to us!

We’re Great With Kids

Dr. Paschal prefers to start seeing children at the age of 3. Our hygienists are great with kids, and have a knack for helping them feel comfortable during their cleaning or checkup. We want their visit to be “fun,” and tailor the process so that it’s age-appropriate.

Protective Sealants and Fluoride

Getting your child off to the right start can help them avoid problems with their smile in the future. That’s why we recommend a fluoride treatment after each cleaning – to make enamel strong and cavity-resistant.

Sealants can be applied to the permanent molars after they erupt, usually around the ages of 6 and 12. These protective plastic coatings make it easier to keep teeth clean. They also block out cavities from forming in the deep grooves and pits on the chewing surfaces.

Athletic Guards

If your child is involved in sports, there’s always a risk of dental trauma or concussion. Wearing a custom fitted guard can protect them better than anything available over the counter.

Orthodontic Evaluations

Dr. Paschal carefully monitors the bite development and eruption patterns of your child’s smile from a young age. This allows us to pinpoint areas where a little help may be needed to avoid future bite discrepancies.

Pediatric Dentist for Kids

Pediatric Dentistry BottomIf your child needs a cavity filled, don’t worry. Dr. Paschal can help! He uses small, white fillings that bond well with both primary (baby) and adult teeth. Plus, they blend in with your child’s smile. If your child is nervous, we also offer “laughing gas” if they need it to relax. But they might be more tuned out with the cartoon playing on the screen above them!
