Dental Services

Dental health care at SEARHC encompasses the health of the entire mouth including teeth, gums, tongue, the roof of the mouth, and the areas inside of the lips and cheeks as well as under the tongue. Gum disease and tooth decay can be reversed or completely prevented with regular trips to the dentist and good oral care starting at a young age.

Beyond cleaning and repairing teeth and gums, our dentists can examine your mouth for signs of oral cancer and other mouth disorders, such as thrush, cold sores, canker sores, dry mouth, or saliva gland disorders.

Why Choose a Pediatric Dentist?

Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. They are best qualified to care for children’s oral health because they are specially trained for children’s unique needs. Their professional education includes two to three years of specialized study after becoming a dentist, emphasizing child psychology, special health care, and growth and development. They also take many continuing education courses each year to provide the latest and the best oral care treatment for your child.

Infants, preschoolers, children, and adolescents require different approaches to manage their behavior, to guide their dental growth and development, and to help them avoid future dental problems.

To help a child stay healthy, a pediatric dentist often works with pediatricians, other physicians, and other dental specialists. All children, whether healthy, chronically ill or physically or intellectually disabled, are served best through this team approach. The specialty is becoming even more important as advances in medicine and dentistry increase the life expectancy of children with chronic diseases and congenital problems.

Insurance

We process most insurance for our patients, including Denali KidCare.

Community Traveling Dental Clinics

The SEARHC Dental Program frequently schedules dental field trips and specialty clinics at various facilities around the region. You may schedule your general dentistry and pediatric dentistry appointments, but the orthodontic and endodontic specialty clinics require a referral from a SEARHC dentist.

The pediatric dental clinics are for children younger than 18 years old who are enrolled in the state’s Denali KidCare program or are on Medicaid (clinic staff can help you enroll your children).

Local contact numbers are listed by each clinic for scheduling purposes. All scheduled clinics are subject to change.  View full schedule.
