First Visit 

Good oral health starts with your child's first visit to Southern Heights Dental Group. The first appointment is usually quick and doesn't involve much treatment, but it's an important visit to set the stage for proper oral health care and maintenance. Typically the first visit includes a quick exam of your child's teeth and gums, then cleaning and fluoride treatment. X-rays may also be taken. Most importantly, we will review with your child how to properly clean and care for their teeth.


Pediatric-focused Experts

At Southern Heights Dental Group we have a team of experts who focus on providing the highest quality dental health care to children. In 2013, Southern Heights Dental Group was the first private practice in Southern Minnesota to start using dental therapists, or mid-level providers, who have a specific focus working with children. This means they understand the unique dental needs of children, and know how to expertly guide your child through their first appointment and each following appointment.  


Sedation-free Dentistry

If your child is in need of a little extra dental work, know that they're in good hands with our experts. We offer a full-range of dental services for children, including extractions and fillings all without the use of sedation.
