Pediatric Dentistry

Thank you for visiting the Creighton University Pediatric Dentistry web page.  Our department is composed of two specialties, pediatric dentistry and orthodontics. 


For our patients and parents, I would like you to know that every aspect of your or your child’s dental care will be reviewed very closely by Creighton students and faculty.  Creighton dental students are very bright and, as one of the core values at Creighton, we believe that the inalienable worth of each individual person and patient is of fundamental importance.  Our students perform well every year in the various board examinations.  They participate in many community programs to help prevent and improve the oral health of people in our community.  They have no equal in wanting their patients to have a good experience at the dentist.  Each and every step in patient care is discussed and checked by our faculty, who are very experienced teachers and dentists.  Our full time faculty average more than 25 years experience in their specialty.  Our faculty have given many continuing education courses to other dentists and have published many scholarly articles.  Our pediatric dentistry dental assistants and front desk staff are highly capable, friendly people who are dedicated to help you and your child. 


I would also like to mention that our department has extremely good facilities.  Our chairs, instruments, and other equipment are top notch.  The materials that we use… the silver filling, the tooth colored filling material, the sealants, the fluoride, the orthodontic materials, and all the other materials…  are what we consider to be the best in dentistry.  Furthermore, the instruments we use are all processed through our state-of-the-art sterilization area. 


In sum, our faculty and staff are committed to providing the best education possible for our students and giving our patients the best care in a friendly, respectful environment.
