ABOUT US

  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!

OUR SERVICES

Routine Hygiene and Exams

 

Prevention is the best treatment. Routine visits provide us an opportunity to evaluate your childs oral status and stop problems before they start. We will see your little one as soon as they have teeth! 

3D Imaging

 

We have the most advanced 3D imaging technology available, allowing us to visualize facial structures in incredible detail, and with less radiation exposure than previous technology. 

White Fillings

 

We provide a number of resin and/or silica based restorative materials that provide an esthetic result while conserving healthy tooth structure.

Sedation and Hospital Dentistry

 

As pediatric dentists, we have training that allows us to treat little ones and special needs patients with safe in-office sedation or under general anesthesia in a hospital setting.

Airway Conscious Orthodontics

 

We care about so much more than straight teeth. Growth and development of the oral structures can have lifelong consequences. We have the technology and training to identify problems and prevent airway constriction during orthodontic treatment.

Soft Tissue Correction

 

Releasing lip and/or tongue ties in infants can improve breastfeeding success for mother and baby. These procedures are safe and can be done quickly in the office using a dental laser with limited or no bleeding. Older patients can have speech and oral development benefits from these services.

Emergency Services

 

We will do everything we can to accomodate emergency patients and our doctors are available after hours on our emergency phone line.

Permanent Crowns, Root Canals, etc.

 

We don't just see little kids! Many of our teenage patients need more extensive treatment on permanent teeth. In most circumstances, we can provide these services in house.
