Welcome to Caldwell Pediatric Dentistry

At Caldwell Pediatric Dentistry we are here to make your child feel comfortable and at ease throughout the entire dental appointment. With our friendly staff, inviting colors of cheerfulness, and parent-involved appointments, we are here to provide your child with the best dental care.

At our office you can expect:

A Kid-Inspired, SAFE Environment

A safe environment has always been our #1 goal. To keep our families safe, our office has followed the extensive safety measures established by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). However, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, our offices have taken extra precautionary measures to make sure that our families are safe during each visit. To provide a safe environment we have implemented air purifiers, sneeze guards, electronic check-in processes, low aerosol protocols and much more into our office. For more information regarding our safety measures and new protocols visit our COVID-19 page.

Dental Educational

Providing routine dental check-ups, daily brushing techniques, and helpful dental tips encourage a lifetime of good oral health. We are committed to go above and beyond in order to teach kids exciting ways on how to maintain a healthy smile! Visit our Kid’s Club page to download activities for children today!

An Open-Door Policy

Parents are not only welcome, but encouraged to be with their child throughout the entire dental appointment. This provides comfort and ease to both child and parent! We value our parents and want them to be involved.

Our pediatric specialists and general dentists who focus on children know the importance of a positive dental experience by building a relationship with each patient using open communication and trust. We also understand the unique care of special needs children. Please inform us of your child’s needs when making an appointment so that we can provide the proper provider and treatment plan.

Caldwell Pediatric Dentistry is dedicated to making your child’s dental appointment, safe, fun, and informative!

We are now accepting NEW PATIENTS. To make your child’s appointment today please call us at 828-572-7530 or make an appointment online.

Caldwell Pediatric Dentistry is a proud affiliate of NC Pediatric Dentistry.

Professional and most important painless. They listened to me when I said that I usually have to get twice the numbing medicine. They obliged and I didn’t feel anything! Thank you so much!
