At Dentistry for Kids, conveniently located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, we are dedicated to providing your child with the very best dentistry available. Dr. Kris Hendricks and his staff are experts at dealing with children's concerns and calming their fears while treating their dental needs.

We provide a continuum of treatment through the developing years to guide your child to a healthy mouth and a winning smile. Although we specialize in the care of children's dental problems, our office is centered in preventative care – beginning before the eruption of the first tooth. Our infant dental care program is designed for parents who are truly concerned about their child's dental development.

It is critical to us that a child has a successful and pleasant first experience. At your child's initial appointment, we will get to know your child and let your child get to know us. We consider age and previous dental experience when preparing the initial exam so it can be as enjoyable and positive as possible!

Dentistry for Kids strives to make this new journey for your child a fun, rewarding experience. There is no doubt... your child's path to optimal dental health starts here!
