Pediatric Dentist Chicago Orthodontic Care

The qualities that separate our practice from others are our unique, caring, talented and highly skilled doctors and staff. We know just how to relate to children and how to make any child comfortable. It's our goal to provide healthy smiles for a lifetime.  

Our services to dramatically reduce the chances of early childhood dental decay and simultaneously significantly reduce the many dental fears that children often develop. 

The AAPD (American Association of Pediatric Dentistry) and the AAP (American Association of Pediatricians) recommends that children see the dentist before reaching the age of one. Our pediatric dentists prevention program paired with a caring environment can significantly reduce or eliminate decay.  

At each dental exam, we monitor the growth and development patterns of each patient's  teeth, jaws, face. Dr. Boyd and Pannaralla are especially trained to diagnose potential developmental orthodontic problems at a very young age.

Some of these problems can best be treated early when the jaws are more receptive to treatment and growth of the face is active. The most important factor in determining the  most proper form of treatment is regular examinations. 

Usually by the time orthodontic treatment is needed, our patients have become a part of our family. We place a large importance on our relationship with even our youngest patients.  It's our goal to establish oral and overall health practices, encourage healthy eating, and provide smiles for a lifetime.

  1. Hello! Thank you for posting this information about pediatric dentist. You have such an very interesting and informative page. I am looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Keep it up! I'm so glad to stop by your page and to have additional knowledge about pediatric dentist.
    Based on what I have read in an article through web, pediatric entists promote the dental health of children as well as serve as educational resources for parents. It is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) that a dental visit should occur within six months after the presence of the first tooth or by a child’s first birthday. It is important to establish a Dental Home for a child. This is because early oral examination aids in the detection of the early stages of tooth decay. Early detection is essential to maintain oral health, modify aberrant habits, and treat as needed and as simply as possible. Additionally, parents are given a program of preventative home care (brushing/flossing/fluorides), a caries risk assessment, information on finger, thumb, and pacifier habits, advice on preventing injuries to the mouth and teeth of children, diet counseling, and information on growth and development.
    We help patients of all ages at Herzog Family Dental
