The key to working with children in dentistry (or in life) is to make it fun for them.
You probably want a dentist with a great sense of humor, television, children’s movies, and little but important things like cupcake-flavored toothpaste, gum, and toys.
We recommend Dr. Jenna Khoury at The Brush Stop in Carlsbad!
You should have a pediatric specialist!
It’s quicker, safer, and it costs less!
Combative child? Less than 5? Special needs?
Dr. Khoury has specialized training and can work with even the most challenging of children.
It’s safer, quicker and more comfortable for some children to have anesthesia. This is a deep sleep, conscious anesthesia – not a knock out.

Straighten your child’s teeth without braces
Myobrace is a teeth straightening system most commonly used for patients ranging from 5-15 years of age – kids who are still growing.
It’s a great system with a dual function: It corrects the oral habits that cause poor development, and it gently forces teeth to align into their natural position.
Treatment involves wearing an appliance for 1-2 hours daily, overnight while sleeping, combined with a series of myofunctional exercises.

Pediatric lip ties & tongue ties
Tongue ties occur when a piece of skin (called the frenulum) under a baby’s tongue restricts the movement of the tongue. Lip ties are similar, but can restrict proper movement of the upper lip.
These issues can both be treated with minimally invasive same-day laser surgery.
