Hospital Dentistry Brings Balance and Comfort to Children in Hospitals
As a parent, you want to make the best decisions for your child’s wellbeing. You feed them nutritious meals, send them to good schools, and put them in after school programs. You want them to be happy. As the parent of a sick child, you might strive extra hard to make your child more comfortable and bring a sense of stability to their life. That’s one of the many reasons we specialize in hospital dentistry.
What is Hospital Dentistry?
Hospital dentistry is a dental specialty that brings the dentist to the hospital. With extensive experience in children’s dentistry, our team here at Smiling Kids Pediatric Dentistry Indianapolis is now committed to bringing quality, compassionate dental care to the Indianapolis area. This allows us to work directly with our patients’ physicians and ensure they’re getting the best dental treatment in conjunction with their overall medical care.
Who is Hospital Dentistry Good for?
This unique specialization was designed to cater to the needs of families and individuals who are in need of dental care, but unable to make it to the dentist. It might be that a dental specialist is too far from their hospital or it could be that their doctors don’t want them leaving the hospital. Whatever the situation, hospital dentistry allows us to come to you. And, we work with physicians to ensure the dental treatment your child receives doesn’t have any negative interactions with their current medical treatment.
How can Hospital Dentistry Benefit my Child and Family?
Getting to and from your dentist’s office can be time-consuming. Add to that the stress of transporting a sick child and it can become an entire day’s work. Hospital dentistry can save your family time, will ensure you’re kept in the loop because you know your child’s doctors and dentist are working together and can bring a sense of stability to your routine because you won’t have to bother planning your day around yet another appointment.
At Smiling Kids Pediatric Dentistry Indianapolis, we’ve been practicing children’s dentistry in Indianapolis for years. Dr. Singh received extensive training beyond dental school, including residencies at James Whitcomb Riley Hospital for Children. She has solid connections with physicians in the area and knows the ins and outs of communicating as a part of a team so that your child gets the highest level of treatment possible.
