Children's Dentistry

Allen Dentistry is a place where your entire family can feel at ease. Dr. Nylander is a skilled pediatric dentist who believes in making dental care fun and rewarding for kids. By making sure our youngest patients have a positive experience, we can help them retain healthy and beautiful smiles as they grow. If your child needs dental services, and they all do, Allen, Texas, is the best place to go! 

We serve children with a full menu of dental services that allow us to do our part in protecting their smiles, including routine dental cleanings, dental sealants, and custom athletic mouthguards. Since children’s teeth are often more susceptible to decay, we focus on helping them understand the importance of proper brushing and flossing. We also educate them on the eating habits that could damage their smile. 

The tooth anatomy of baby teeth is entirely different from the anatomy of adult teeth. This means that your child needs a different kind of care than you do. This also means they need a pediatric dentist. Dr. Nylander is a pediatric dentist with the highest qualifications and experience necessary to care for your child’s teeth. When you bring your child into our office, you can know that they are in the best hands possible. 

Suppose your child does experience a dental problem or tooth injury. In that case, you can trust that Dr. Nylander will respond with prompt, thorough care using conservative methods to protect the function and aesthetics of their smile. We do everything to care for your child and make them feel comfortable in our office. On our website, you can find a list of the various services we offer to all kids. No matter what shape your kid’s teeth are in, there is something for everyone! 


We Love Children!

We understand that the dentist can be a source of anxiety or fear for children. Therefore, we work hard to make sure your child feels safe and relaxed while they are here. Patients of all ages love our warm, welcoming office environment. We have amenities designed to entertain and comfort the youngest members of your family, from flat-screen TVs featuring kid-friendly movies to unique toys and prizes to reward their visit. Best of all, your child will be surrounded by a team of friendly and caring dental professionals who use a gentle, non-intimidating approach when treating smiles.

For children who need it, we also offer nitrous oxide or “laughing gas” so that they can relax during their procedure. This form of mild sedation is effective and very safe for kids. We administer it through a breathing mask, and they will be conscious the entire time and can quickly respond to any questions we ask. They can also speak up when they need something. The effects of laughing gas wear off quickly once they breathe normal oxygen again. 

Please get in touch with us today to learn more about our reputation for excellence in pediatric dental care. We encourage parents to bring their children for an office tour or chat with Dr. Nylander before their appointment if it helps to reduce their anxiety. The opportunity to care for growing smiles is something we deeply value at Allen Dentistry. If you know that your child is especially anxious about the dentist’s office, please let us know how to help! We are more than willing to help! 


Reach out to us today to get your child into our office for a cleaning and a check-up. By taking care of your child’s baby teeth, we can guarantee that their adult teeth will be healthier and stronger. So please don’t wait to reach out to us!

We look forward to working with you and your child.
