Visit the Family Dentist Middletown parents trust

Little mouths are a big part of what we do at University Dental. We enjoy serving patients of all ages from Montgomery, Butler, Warren, and Hamilton Counties, but our office comes alive when little ones walk through the door. With an upbeat atmosphere and low-stress techniques, we have become the kids’ dentist that parents in the Middletown area trust with their children’s oral health, development, and appearance.

Little details make a big difference

Most family dental practices have a children’s play corner in the reception area, but otherwise treat small patients pretty much like adults. We take kids’ dentistry further, with attention to little details that make a big difference in how your child feels about dental care, now and into the future. Here are a few examples:

  • Children are greeted by name and spoken to (not about).
  • We focus on education and prevention of dental disease, taking plenty of time to share information with parents, and to give hands-on demonstration to child patients.
  • Our dentists are trained to administer nitrous oxide and sedation, helping pediatric patients overcome dental anxiety and get through treatments without drama.
  • We use kid-sized instruments for gentle, comfortable care.
