Frankfort’s Premier Pediatric Dentist
From the first appointment at a child’s first birthday to their graduation, it’s our goal to guide every patient to great oral and overall health! Our kid-centered practice is committed to providing individualized attention and the best quality care to your child’s teeth. Dr. Missy Collins has an additional 2 years of training beyond receiving her degree in dentistry and specializes in treating children.
Why Pediatric Dentistry?
Our experienced dentist at Capitol Kids Dentistry has an additional 2 years of training, beyond dental school, and specializes providing dental care specific to children. We believe that caring for little teeth is just as important as caring for permanent ones and starting the habit of proper oral health at a young age is important to ensuring a healthy smile for life! Our doctor and team are dedicated to caring for infants, children, and teens in Frankfort, KY.
WHEN SHOULD MY CHILD HAVE THEIR FIRST DENTAL APPOINTMENT?
The ADA recommends scheduling your child’s first dental appointment by their first birthday or within 6 months of their first tooth coming in. Little teeth need just as much attention as permanent teeth to prevent decay and encourage healthy habits.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD MY CHILD VISIT THE DENTIST?
It’s important for your child to be seen by a pediatric dentist every 6 months. Tracking oral hygiene, habits, and growth regularly is essential to preventing issues.
DOES PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY COST MORE THAN GENERAL DENTISTRY?
We want your child to receive the best dental care in Frankfort, so we accept most insurance, including Medicaid and KCHIP. We are happy to work with you to create a dental hygiene plan for your child that will suit your family’s financial needs.
“The team at Capitol Kids Dentistry is great! We were in and out in no time for my child’s dental cleaning. Dr. Megan answered all questions thoroughly. Everyone greeted us with a smile and welcomed us in.”
“My son Luke loves going to the dentist. Everyone is so friendly there and took the time to explain everything precisely. Would recommend everyone in Frankfort and surrounding areas to go there!!”
“Very little waiting time, they are very kind and sweet with the children (which helps reduce anxiety for dentist appointments). They have been handling the pandemic very well with taking extra precautions of taking temperatures before anyone is allowed in as well as having families wait in the car until they are ready to be seen and leading the child to the room.”
