Through interactive dialogue and preventive treatments, our Albuquerque children’s dentists empower kids to develop healthy oral hygiene habits and cavity-free smiles.

Helping kids feel comfortable at the dentist
Happy teeth, happy smiles

As your family’s partner in oral health, we want to be a place (and an experience) your little one looks forward to! Parents often remark on our ability to help their children feel right at home. And your child will love our fun play area!

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends little ones have their first dental exam by age one. These early visits are simply to establish a baseline and help your baby get comfortable with going to the dentist.

See ya later, cavities! We believe preventing problems is always better than treating them. We’ll work with you to create a personalized plan to maintain oral health. Our approach is always tailored to your child’s oral health, needs, and lifestyle.

“I have been coming to Dr. Chris and Stephanie Padilla for the last four years. Every time I have to make an appointment for myself or my boys I know we’ll be in the best hands! If you need a cleaning, filling, or an orthodontist appointment, please know when choosing them you’ve made the right decision. They are very knowledgeable, professional.”

Questions about your child’s dental health?

How can I prepare my child for their dental visit?

Ensuring your child feels at ease before their dental visit is key for a positive experience. Share positive thoughts about the visit, utilizing resources like books and videos. Bring their favorite toy to the consultation and reassure them that you'll be by their side every step of the way.

Are parents allowed in the exam room during the visit?

Yes! We encourage parental involvement in the exam room to ensure a comfortable and reassuring experience for both you and your child.

How can I encourage good oral health for my child?

Good oral hygiene starts with regular brushing and flossing. Teach your children to brush their teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and to floss daily. Encourage a balanced diet and limit sugary snacks and drinks to help prevent cavities.

How often does my child need to see the dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children see the dentist at least twice a year. This is also the recommendation for adults. With regular dental visits, our Albuquerque children's dentists can help your child avoid cavities, dental pain, and future oral health issues.
