Children's Hospital Colorado

Preparing for a Dental Visit

At Children’s Hospital Colorado, we treat the big things, the small things and everything in between.

Dental care just for kids

Here at Children’s Hospital Colorado’s Dental Center, our team is specially trained to provide excellent dental care for children and teens. Our goal is to make your child’s visit to our dental clinic comfortable and stress free. Kids are special to us, and we want them to know it. 

Child-centered care and techniques

We strive to help children feel less fearful while receiving dental care. We use techniques approved by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry to help make your child comfortable throughout the visit, including:

  • Behavioral techniques like “tell-show-do,” where we explain and show every step to your child in advance
  • Treatments to help prevent pain, like providing laughing gas (nitrous oxide) and general anesthesia, when appropriate
