Welcome to Pediatric Dental Specialists of Greater Nebraska

  • babywellness

One of the most common questions we get from parents is: when should we bring our child to the dentist? We recommend by their first birthday, or when they get their first tooth, whichever comes first.

  • Orthodontics

Every parent loves to see their kids’ smile, and straighter teeth can give your child the confidence they need to show you their sweet smile even more. Orthodontics provide more than straight teeth, there’s health benefits too!

  • Growing Together

One of the most important lessons you can teach your child is good oral health. That’s why we partner with parents to provide a lifetime of healthy smiles! From the first tooth to learning to brush, braces and beyond!

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING!

We don’t wait long, get in right away, then after their visit get an explanation of what care was done and what care they may need in the future.
