  • Services and Conditions Treated

    Orthodontic Services

    The Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics staff provides comprehensive orthodontic care for patients up to age 14. Our office is on the Burnet  Campus. To schedule an appointment, call 513-636-4683.

    Well-Patient Dental Care

    Although our service is well known for its care of children with complex medical problems, 50 percent of the patients seen at our offices are healthy children and teens. The Division of Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics accepts patients from newborns through 14 years of age and encourages families to bring their children in for an examination by their first birthday.

    Craniofacial Abnormalities

    Children born with head and facial abnormalities require care from many specialists. The Craniofacial Team, managed by the Division of Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, brings those specialties together. Our role is to recommend a comprehensive treatment plan that meets the child's healthcare needs. For more information about the Craniofacial Center,  contact:

    Collaborative Partners

    The Division of Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics provides staff support for the Craniofacial Clinic at Shriners Hospitals for Children − Cincinnati, as well as for patients who have received facial burns involving the perioral area.

    We are available for consults for in-house patients and the Emergency Department. We have a close relationship with the Fanconi Anemia, Hematology / Oncology, Epidermolysis Bullosa, Otolaryngology and Cardiology clinics and the Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics.

    This is part of an effort to provide the most comprehensive care for all patients, helping to achieve the best possible outcomes for every child in our care.

    Children with Complex Conditions

    Cincinnati Children’s is nationally and internationally recognized for our care of children with complicated medical, physical and mental health conditions. The Division of Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics offers dental care for all patients with special needs, from antibiotic coverage for cardiac conditions or immunosuppression, care for children receiving chemotherapy, infusing missing clotting factors to allow hemophiliacs to have teeth removed, or spending extra time with patients who are mentally challenged.
