Dentistry For Kids

At Gillum Family Dentistry, in Greenwood Indiana, we strive to make dentistry for kids more accessible, comfortable, educational and most of all fun!

We know that choosing a dentist, for your children, is an awesome responsibility. You want a close knit team you can trust who has your child’s dental development, health, safety and comfort in mind. At Gillum Dentistry, we welcome children from toddlers to teens and cater to their needs with a friendly, experienced and professional team.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit a dentist by age 1. We welcome children of all ages to our family-focused Greenwood dental practice. We offer a no charge new patient “Happy” visit if your child is under 3 years of age. Your child is welcome to visit with a parent, get comfortable with the office, meet the hygienist, sit on their parents lap, play with the water syringe and get their teeth and oral health visually checked by our experienced hygienist. We build on your child’s confidence, at an early age, so when they are 3 they are ready to visit with confidence. At Gillum Family Dentistry, mom and dad are welcome to sit on the sideline as long as they desire. We have a comfortable chair for you as well.

Kid-Friendly Amenities:

Positive early dental experiences help children feel comfortable in the dental office, making their time with us more effective and less stressful. Routine dental visits are the best way to monitor your child’s dental health, facial development, reinforce life-long habits and intercept growth and dental problems before they become stubborn adult frustrations.

We know that children can feel anxious about going to the dentist, so we focus on kid-friendly amenities to help our younger patients feel comfortable, relaxed and more at home.

  • Safe free nitrous oxide sedation for anxiety free treatment visits.

  • Low dose digital X-ray technology. No need for films to be placed in the mouth.

  • A children’s activity center.

  • Treasure baskets with fun little toys.
  • TVs and headphones in rooms for cartoons and music
