Pediatric Dentistry in
Bridgeport & Stamford

A strong dental foundation begins with receiving top-quality treatment and care at an early age. That is why the experts at McLeanSmiles consider pediatric dentistry to be very important. It is a proven fact that people who make consistent dental visits early in life are more likely to maintain positive oral health into their adult years. Additionally, bringing a young child in for dental visits establishes a level of comfort and trust that will carry over into later visits. In fact, we encourage parents to start bringing in their children for dental visits shortly after their first teeth begin to emerge.

The trusted staff at McLeanSmiles loves working with younger patients, and we understand the challenges associated with providing dental care for children. Some children might feel nervous or apprehensive about visiting the dentist. This is perfectly normal, and we’ve been through these situations many times. We know how to make children feel relaxed and comfortable while they receive the treatment and attention that they need. And it doesn’t hurt that our patient rooms have TVs to help them stay occupied! By choosing McLeanSmiles, not only are you making your child happy, you are helping them achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.

We offer the following pediatric dental services:

  • Sealants: Dental sealants consist of an acrylic coating that is applied over a child or teen’s back molars. This coating establishes an effective barrier against harmful bacteria and plaque. It also smooths out the rough surfaces to makes the teeth easier to clean.
  • Fluoride Applications: Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that has many proven benefits for teeth. The substance is known for strengthening tooth enamel and for reversing the early effects of tooth decay.
  • Fillings: Dental fillings are used to restore minor dental damage and decay, often caused by cavities. We use composite tooth-colored fillings that look natural and do not release any harmful materials into the body. This makes our fillings perfectly safe for children.
  • Emergency Dentistry: With the active lives children and teens live, it’s no wonder that they often require dental treatment on short notice! If your child ever requires prompt treatment, our dedicated staff will do their very best to accommodate their needs.
  • Crowns: Dental crowns are used to restore the appearance and function of teeth that have been lost or severely damaged. We provide children and teens with top-quality crowns that will help them recover their beautiful smiles and boost their confidence.

I can't say enough how grateful to have Dr. McClean as my dentist. She makes visiting the dentist a pleasurable experience. She is honest, has integrity and has a very open personality/disposition. My kids and I enjoy going. I may have a future dentist as my daughter watched and inquired about how Dr. McClean cleaned her brother's teeth. Dr. McClean was very patient and answered all of my daughter's questions. Again, Dr. McClean is an awesome dentist! 😊 😍 👍
