Preventative Care

Regular oral care is not only important in maintaining a healthy smile but also to your child’s overall health. At Rising Stars Pediatric Dentistry, we understand that good oral hygiene is an ongoing commitment and we are dedicated to supporting your child in all of their dental needs with our leading pediatric dentistry team. We deliver prenatal and perinatal counseling, cleanings, exams, fluoride, silver diamine fluoride, and sealants. By providing you with trusted information about preventative care, our team aims to empower your child to take control of their oral health and establish their dental home. Routine cleanings are a large part of developing good oral hygiene as they provide our dental team with the opportunity to examine your oral health and address growth issues or emerging infection in the early stages. Our team will work with you to develop recommendations for a care plan based on your child’s unique needs. Call us today to schedule a cleaning and exam with our team!

Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry is a specific branch of dentistry focused on restoring the health and function of your smile following tooth damage, tooth decay, or tooth loss. At Dental Partners of Dickson, we offer a wide array of restorative dental treatments to meet your individual dental needs including teeth whitening, dental x-rays, and periodontal therapy. After a comprehensive examination, our highly skilled dental team will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your unique oral health goals (and your budget). For many patients, going to the dentist can be daunting. For this reason, we work incredibly hard to develop trust with our patients and rely on advanced technology to ensure your restorative treatments are comfortable and natural looking. Let us help you feel confident in the look and feel of your smile by scheduling a consultation with our team today!

Laser Dentistry

For many young patients, going to the dentist can be daunting. For this reason, we work incredibly hard to develop trust with our patients and rely on advanced technology to ensure their restorative treatments are comfortable and natural looking. Sedation is a technique to guide a child’s behavior during dental treatment. Medications are used to help increase cooperation and to reduce anxiety or discomfort associated with dental procedures. Sedative medications cause most children to become relaxed and drowsy. Unlike general anesthesia, sedation is not intended to make a patient unconscious or unresponsive. Another alternative to virtually painless procedures is Solea or Diode. These power dental lasers replace the dental drill in the majority of procedures in our practice. It causes virtually no pain, vibration or noise. In fact, nearly every patient skips anesthesia because they just don’t need it. Laser Dentistry is our way of keeping your child happy!

Surgical Services

If the word "surgery" when it comes to your child causes anxiety in you, don't worry. At Rising Stars Dental, the goal is to reduce anxiety with a gentle touch, an empathetic demeanor, and advanced training in sedation anesthesia. We are committed to giving our patients the most comfortable, professional and timely experience possible. Our dental surgery specialists provide everything from routine treatments like teeth extractions to more complicated soft tissue surgical procedures. There are few dentists more qualified to expertly handle your child’s surgical needs than those of Rising Stars Dental. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment!
