Our pediatric dental practice caters to meeting the unique dental needs of children and young adults. Our goal is to give our young dental patients and their parents a reason to smile! The dental office of Canyon Ridge Pediatric Dentistry is a fun place where children will feel comfortable receiving dental treatment. In some cases, children are very anxious visiting the dentist, and Dr. Thomas is happy to discuss the options we have to help children receive safe and comfortable dental care.
We know that the dental needs of younger patients are very different than adults. After graduating dental school at the top of his class, Dr. Marc D. Thomas completed a pediatric dental residency at the Yale School of Medicine to become a specialist in providing dentistry for kids. After completing his residency program, Dr. Marc D. Thomas completed the optional exams to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
As a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist, Dr. Marc D. Thomas has been educated and tested on the best available science to prevent and treat cavities in children. This also includes training and experience treating children with special behavioral, emotional, physical or mental needs. At Canyon Ridge Pediatric Dentistry, you will find that the dental chairs, dental instruments, and x-ray devices are all sized appropriately for your child. This, along with our child-friendly amenities, will give your child the best chance to have a positive experience at our dental office. We do everything possible to help your child have a happy dental experience, and we especially value input from parents when any dental decisions are made.
We offer compassionate dental care for children at our two convenient locations in Parker and Castle Rock. We also serve the surrounding areas of Lone Tree, Elizabeth, Aurora, Franktown, Larkspur, Centennial and Highlands Ranch. Many of our patients drive even further to receive dental care at Canyon Ridge Pediatric Dentistry.
We know that treating teeth is a team effort, and at Canyon Ridge Pediatric Dentistry, parents are always welcome to accompany their children for check-ups and dental treatment. We provide video games in the waiting room, movies in every treatment room, and the latest and safest dental technology available to benefit our patients. We use a digital x-ray system to reduce the amount of radiation that is used, and a sophisticated electronic system for keeping dental records. Our goal is to use the best available science and technology to benefit your children’s teeth.
Oral health is a lifelong goal, and we know that healthy dental habits begin at a young age. Along with Pediatricians and other pediatric dentists, Dr. Thomas agrees that regular dental visits beginning with your child’s first tooth continuing all the way through college is the best way for your child to achieve spectacular oral health. It is a fact that the earlier a child sees a pediatric dentist and the more regularly they have dental cleanings, the fewer cavities they will have through adulthood.
