Welcome to Locust Pediatric Dentistry

At Locust Pediatric Dentistry, we are committed to providing infants, young children, adolescents, and those with special needs an exceptional dental experience.

Our office provides:

Safety First

Your child’s safety is our number one priority! We implement the rigorous safety and sanitary standards set by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Recently, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our offices have taken extra precautionary measures to ensure that our families are protected. To provide the safest environment we have implemented air purifiers, sneeze guards, electronic check-in processes, low aerosol protocols and much more into our office. For more information regarding our safety measures and new protocols visit our COVID-19 page.

Dental Education and Tips

Our goal as your local dentist is to provide your child with a visit that educates good oral habits, provides dental tips to enhance brushing and flossing at home, and make routine visits fun! Visit our kid’s club page to download cool activities to get started today!

Parent-Involved Appointment

Parents are not only welcome, but encouraged to be with their child throughout the entire dental appointment. This provides comfort and ease to both child and parent! We value our parents and want them to be involved.

Our team and doctors, consisting of pediatric specialists and general dentists who focus on children, go way beyond the basics to make sure each visit is safe, comfortable, informative, and fun. We specialize and are trained to work with infants, young children, adolescents, and those with special needs. Please specify the child’s needs when making an appointment so that we can provide the proper provider and treatment plan.

We are proud to serve the Locust community and surrounding areas. Our office is always ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS and look forward to meeting you soon! Call or schedule your child’s next dental appointment online!

Locust Pediatric Dentistry is a proud affiliate of the NC Pediatric Dentistry Network.
