    Comprehensive Dental Care for Children

    For over 100 years, Cincinnati Children’s has had a ‘Dental Clinic’. We are continuing the strong tradition, and are pleased to provide comprehensive dental care to your child, including emergency trauma care 24-hours a day, orthodontic care and a host of specialist consultants in Endodontics, Periodontics, Esthetic Dentistry and Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.

    We also work intimately with medical teams to serve children with complex medical, mental, social and physical challenges. 

    If our team feels your child would benefit from it, we can offer dental treatment under sedation or general anesthesia. Additionally, we have immediate access to medical support from the wide range of specialties at Cincinnati Children’s.

    National Recognition

    Our Division of Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics is part of a nationally recognized Craniofacial Team, caring for children and young adults with abnormalities of the head, face and mouth. Dr. Elizabeth Gosnell, DMD, MS serves as our team dentist. Our department, led by international authority, Dr. Stephen Wilson, DMD,PhD,  also serves as a skilled regional resource for sedation and anesthesia for young and apprehensive patients.
