Healthy Smiles for Life Start Here

Caring for the growing children of the Low Country since 1977

Children’s Dentistry of Charleston was founded with the vision of providing optimal health and care for infants, children, adolescents, and persons with special health care needs while providing a fun, relaxed, learning experience. As specialists trained to care for the unique dental needs of children, we understand the importance of establishing good oral hygiene practice early in life. We also believe that if children can have fun while developing positive dental habits, they will be more likely to have good oral health for the rest of their lives.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a visit to a pediatric dentist for your child by 1 year of age and regular visits for optimal dental health. We invite you to come meet our pediatric dentists, registered dental hygienists, and staff and take a tour of our offices. Our team is happy to answer any questions you may have or provide a second opinion about your child’s dental needs. We look forward to seeing you soon!
