About Piedmont Pediatric Dentistry
Welcome to our friendly and supportive dental office
Pediatric dental home centered around your child
Every child is perfectly unique. Whether your child is just turning one year old or well into their teenage years, their individual needs and dental concerns deserve to be addressed personally. At Piedmont Pediatric Dentistry, our compassionate team of general dentists and pediatric specialists care most about meeting your child’s dental needs at their level.
We want to help your children grow up with a healthy smile no matter their previous dental experiences. We hope that you choose to establish your child’s dental home with us.
All Children Deserve Excellent Care
Charlottesville is a diverse community. No matter what your background, or what special needs your child has, we hope to make you feel comfortable and at home at Piedmont Pediatric Dentistry. We accept most dental insurance plans for your convenience.
We want Piedmont Pediatric Dentistry to be your children’s dental home from the moment their first teeth erupt through to their teenage years. To meet that ambitious goal, we recognize that your children’s developmental needs will change over time, so we are committed to building lasting relationships with you and your children.
Positive, Friendly Environment
Guidance and Education
We believe that excellent dental care is about more than cleanings and fillings, so our mission extends to providing anticipatory guidance and patient education about your child’s oral health, nutrition, and oral hygiene habits at home. Your child is the hero of their own story, and we’re here to help them succeed and grow up healthy.
