General Dentistry

Welcome to Joplin Children’s Dentistry, where our dental team specializes in dentistry for infants and children. Dr. Owens and Dr. Rosenberg work together with our assistants and hygienists to provide quality and compassionate care to our young patients. We provide a wide range of dental services to assist your child.

Whether you visit our office for a routine cleaning, a root canal, or a dental emergency, our staff can take good care of your child! From the first friendly hello to your child’s smile when you walk out the door, we’re with you every step of the way.

Don’t Wait to Start Dental Care

Bringing your child to the dentist early in life is a great way to prevent oral health problems later on. If we spot a problem, we can provide counseling and treatment right away.

Some of the issues you might encounter include:

  • High dental anxiety, especially in young children.
  • Premature loss of a primary tooth that may benefit from a spacer or other dental device.
  • Thumb sucking that causes tooth misalignment.
  • Teeth grinding, especially at night.
  • Nutrition counseling and care.

Taking care of dental problems now can save your child from the pain and discomfort of more serious oral health issues later. If you would like to learn more about preventing serious dental issues, you can learn more on our preventative dentistry page.

Let Us Do The Worrying

You have enough to worry about in your life without having to worry about a stressful dentist visit with your child. We know how to help your child feel welcome and relaxed, and we can provide sedation dentistry for nervous children who need treatment. 

We understand children and their need to feel safe, which is why we make sure our office provides a comfortable and safe environment. We treat each child as an individual and tailor treatments to each situation.
