Choose Pediatric Dental Care from Dr. Sierk
Proper dental care is as important for baby teeth as it is for the permanent teeth. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends children visit the dentist within six months after their first tooth has erupted. At Sierk Children's Dentistry, we care for children’s teeth through all stages of development.
Choose Dr. Jonathan Sierk, a board-certified pediatric dentist, to empower your child with a strong, healthy smile. Our Highlands Ranch dental team does all we can to create a warm, comfortable environment and provides education that will benefit your child for a lifetime.
Children’s Dental Services
We have many child-specific services, offered with a conservative approach. Your child’s visit to Sierk Children's Dentistry begins with a thorough examination and a gentle cleaning. Additionally, we continue our preventive efforts with sealants and fluoride. We use both standard restorative techniques as well as silver diamine fluoride to protect your child’s baby teeth from the effects of decay.
If your child is experiencing tooth decay, Dr. Jon Sierk restores fillings or crowns to the affected teeth. We also offer children’s endodontic services. Our conservative pulp treatments provide root canal therapy sessions that are gentle and effective on baby teeth.
Special Needs Dentistry in Highlands Ranch
For patients with special needs, dental visits can be difficult. Dr. Sierk and his team work closely with caregivers to create a comfortable environment for patients requiring more focused attention during treatment. We provide comprehensive care to special needs patients of all ages to help ease anxiety and maximize comfort.
Our practice offers comforting amenities, such as weighted blankets and headphones, as well as sedation services to ensure all our patients can relax during their treatment.
Educating Parents and Children on Dental Health
Dr. Sierk is passionate about your child's dental health. We enjoy educating both parent and child how to maintain a healthy smile. Parents are taught how to care for their child's smile and how to support its development. Our dental team provides nutritional guidance to support parents in their efforts towards establishing good hygiene routines at home. If your child's smile needs additional help, we can recommend a special toothpaste or other treatment options to strengthen teeth and prevent cavities.
Establishing Patient Comfort
The biggest obstacle in providing children’s dental care is making sure they feel comfortable seeing a dentist. Otherwise, in addition to making immediate treatment more difficult, the child will be less likely to visit a dentist as an adult. When your family visits our Highlands Ranch dental practice, your child receives our undivided attention to help them relax and make them feel a part of our dental home.
