Pediatric Dentistry

At Allegheny Health Network (AHN), your child’s smile is as precious to our dentists as it is to you. Our pediatric dentist delivers age-appropriate care that helps your child have healthy teeth and gums for life. Our team also catches the early signs of problems that may affect your child’s well-being.

Pediatric dentistry at AHN: Why choose us?

We meet more of your child’s medical and dental care needs in one program. If you come to us, your child receives dental services from the same network of medical providers you already know and trust. We are among the few health systems in the U.S. able to offer this level of comprehensive care.

Highlights of our program include:

  • Highly skilled dentists: Our team includes a dentist who is board-certified in pediatric dental care. Board certification means our dentist maintains high care standards and stays up-to-date on the latest pediatric dental care practices. And many of our general dentists have years of experience caring for children of all ages.
  • A focus on well-being: We watch your child’s teeth for overcrowding that can cause gum disease and tooth decay. We also check for swollen tissue at the back of the throat (adenoids) and enlarged tonsils that can cause sleep problems. Catching these problems early allows your child to receive timely treatment and avoid complications.
  • Specialized services: We have dental specialists that can provide effective care for your child, no matter the dental issue. Our team includes orthodontists who straighten children’s teeth.
