You can expect a personalized, custom dental plan from Children’s Oral Care Only. We evaluate the needs of each child to determine the optimal treatments for a healthy smile. These are some of the treatments that are available in our dental offices:
Regular cleanings are essential to protect the teeth and gums. Schedule exams and cleanings twice a year to improve dental health and give our team the opportunity to identify dental issues in the early stages. As a part of our general dental care, we also offer digital X rays, fluoride treatments, and BPA free sealants.
If a tooth is weak due to damage or decay, then a crown might be required to strengthen the structure of the tooth. This treatment not only protects the tooth, but it also helps to maintain overall integrity and positioning of the surrounding teeth.
Removing tooth decay is important to prevent the spread of infection in the mouth. After the decay is removed, a filling is placed in the area to strengthen and restore the appearance of the tooth.
Included in our preventive services is an orthodontic evaluation for all of our patients at every age. During each patient’s initial exam and every subsequent visit, the developing occlusion is registered. Interceptive orthodontic treatment can be provided even if a child has only primary (baby) teeth, and help to correct:
Dr. Scholtz is trained in multiple orthodontic and orthopedic modalities with significant emphasis on interceptive corrections to developing malocclusions in growing children, including:

The use of technology in the dental industry helps to improve the quality and outcome of treatments. At Children’s Oral Care Only, we have invested in the latest technology, including laser dentistry services.
We use both the Biolase Waterlase (Erbium laser) and the Biolase Epic (Diode laser) in office. Laser dentistry tools offering a safe and gentle alternative to traditional dental tools.
By focusing on prevention, our goal is to minimize the invasiveness of the dental treatments that are required. We strive to create the healthiest smiles while minimizing invasive treatments whenever possible.
Good oral health is not only important to reduce the risk of tooth decay, but it is also necessary to avoid gum disease. If an infection develops in the gums, then we have various treatment options that can be used for children of all ages.
When a tooth infection spreads to the root of the tooth, it not only causes pain but it also increases the risk of an infection that spreads in the gums and to other teeth. Root canals offer an effective treatment to eliminate the infection and restore dental health.
Discolored teeth can have a negative impact on confidence and self-esteem. We offer in-office teeth whitening treatments that help to brighten the smile instantly.
Extractions are sometimes needed for damaged or decayed teeth or for orthodontic treatments. A strategic, personalized approach is always used when determining if teeth need to be extracted.
One of the fastest ways to improve the appearance of the smile is with dental veneers. This dental treatment offers an easy way to eliminate small aesthetic concerns such as gaps, discoloration, misshapen teeth and more.
