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 after that first tooth appears, but no later than the first birthday. At Sierk Children's Dentistry, we care for children’s teeth through every stage 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 strives to create a warm, comfortable, calm 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. In cases where pulpal therapy is indicated, sessions are gentle and focused on retention of primary 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 calm colors, weighted blankets and headphones, as well as sedation options to ensure all our patients feel safe and relaxed 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 goal in providing children’s dental care, is making sure they feel comfortable seeing a dentist. Kids are encouraged to be an active part of their visit. We have no secrets here! We will explain every process to the children to build a rapport and to decrease the fear from visiting a dentist an adult. When your family visits our Highlands Ranch dental practice, your family receives our undivided attention to create a relaxed atmosphere and make them feel a part of our dental home.
