DHA has 7 convenient locations in the Madison area to tend to your child’s dental needs. 

Children visiting the dentist can be nervous and uncertain. Accordingly, Dental Health Associates of Madison provides exceptionally gentle and caring treatment to every child we see. Many patients have dental anxiety stemming from their childhood.  At Dental Health Associates, we feel that positive dental experiences at a young age are an important part of the child’s long term dental care and emotional well-being.

  • Identify any special dental risks your child may have.
  • Discuss potential childhood oral injuries and management.

Children's Dentistry FAQs

Children, like adults, should visit the dentist every six months.

Pediatric dental specialists are like pediatricians in that their training is formally for young children. A family dentist or a children’s dentist is a more informal name letting patients know their practice serves teenagers, younger children and adults.

If you have dental insurance, the 1-800 number on the back of your card is the best place to learn about what your policy will cover. If you have no dental insurance, Dental Health Associates of Madison will transparently alert you to costs before obligation.
