About Us

At Kirkland Children’s Dentistry, we believe in fairytales. But we also believe that hard work pays off. We understand that oral health success extends far beyond going to the dentist a couple times a year … and it starts with us being here as a resource for you


Our team is specially trained to work with kids, and only kids


An individualized, family-focused approach to dental care

Comprehensive pediatric dental care, with a focus on prevention

We provide professional, wide-ranging pediatric dental care including diagnostic examinations, cleanings, fluoride treatments, restoration of decayed teeth, therapeutic pulp treatments, extractions, and treatment of oral trauma. We enjoy educating our child patients and their parents about proper oral hygiene and diet in hopes that they can help prevent future problems.

Behavior management, sedation, & anesthesia options

We use age-appropriate behavior management techniques. We also have the options of nitrous oxide and oral sedation, if needed. General anesthesia provided by an anesthesiologist is another option available in our office.

After-Hours Care

Because we understand that accidents happen. We commit to being there for our families during the most stressful moments, even if it is outside of normal work hours. While emergency rooms serve as a resource to families, we know that relying on the provider that you have a relationship with is often the best way to work through these stressful moments

Why Put Your Faith In Us


Because that first visit is so important.

We believe that those early dental visits shape a child’s future attitude towards dentistry. If we can provide positive experiences in the beginning, and present dentistry to children in ways that are easy to understand, we can reduce or eliminate any dental anxiety. We know we have done our job well when we hear kids say they’re excited to come back!


Because we recognize each child is wonderfully unique.

We have received special training in pediatrics to be able to give you insight into what to anticipate for your child’s oral growth and development. Additionally, our training in behavior management and sedation gives us the tools to treat children with special behavioral or medical conditions. This means we are able to tailor our treatment approach specifically to what your child needs.


Because preventing problems from ever happening is better than fixing them.

Dental education and prevention is our passion. As we cultivate good oral hygiene in one child, an amazing phenomenon happens as awareness spreads to the whole family, resulting in better oral health for everyone! When a child is taught and empowered to take proper care of the teeth and gums, being cavity-free for a lifetime is actually possible.


Because being a parent is the hardest job there is.

Knowing this, we gladly offer our tips and tricks to make caring for your child’s teeth easier. Our goal is to partner with you as a resource for all things dental. Questions? You can always drop by, email, or call, and we’ll be happy to answer!
