At Westside Pediatric Dentistry, we believe that preventing dental problems before they start is key to maintaining great oral health. We offer a wide range of preventative pediatric dental services, including exams, cleanings, digital diagnostic x-rays, and protective dental sealants, among others. By providing routine preventative dental care, our dentist in Cincinnati Ohio aims to help our young patients develop healthy oral hygiene habits that will last a lifetime.

Our office offers a wide range of pediatric dental services to ensure that your child’s oral health is looked after from their very first tooth to adolescence and beyond.
Preventive care is all about keeping your child’s teeth healthy in the first place. This includes regular checkups and cleanings, as well as access to things like dental sealants, space maintainers, and orthodontic screenings to catch any potential issues early on.
If your child has a cavity or other dental issue, restorative treatments can help address the problem. We offer fillings, pulp therapy, dental crowns, extractions, and pulpotomies to help restore your child’s teeth and maintain their natural state.
Dental emergencies can happen at any time, and Westside Pediatric Dentistry can usually provide same-day emergency dentistry for most patients. Whether your child has a toothache, broken tooth, or another dental emergency, we strive to provide prompt care to alleviate their pain.
If your child has a cavity, a dental filling can help restore their tooth to its original shape and function. Westside Pediatric Dentistry offers tooth-colored fillings that blend in with your child’s natural teeth, so no one will even know they’re there!
Sealants are a preventive measure to help protect your child’s teeth from decay in hard-to-clean areas. They are a thin protective coating that is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, where decay often occurs.
This clear aligner system can help straighten your teen’s teeth without the need for traditional braces.
If you have PPO dental insurance benefits we will do our best to help you maximize those at our office. We are also in-network with several major dental insurance PPO plans and strive to make affordable children's dentistry accessible to all families.
