Welcome to Rutherford Pediatric Dentistry

Our Spindale Pediatric Dentist is Accepting New Patients!

Rutherford Pediatric Dentistry is a dental practice dedicated to providing you and your child with a comfortable, safe, and fun experience the moment you both walk through the door! Our practice’s Open-Door Policy not only provides comfort, but builds trust for both the child and parent!

Our unique patient experience includes:

A Kid-Approved, Safe Environment

Safety always comes first. Our office has always followed the safety recommendations set by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). However, recently our offices have taken extra precautionary measures to ensure that our families are safe during each visit. To provide the safest environment we have implemented air purifiers, sneeze guards, electronic check-in processes, low aerosol protocols and much more into our office. For more information regarding our safety measures and new protocols visit our COVID-19 page.

Dental Education

We take special care to help our patients understand why dental hygiene is important and to instill the best dental practices early on to help reduce future problems. Routine dental check-ups along with healthy habits encourage a lifetime of good oral health. Visit our Kid’s Club page to print activities today!

An Open-Door Policy

Parents are not only welcome, but encouraged to be with their child throughout the entire dental appointment. This provides comfort and ease to both child and parent! We value our parents and want them to be involved.

Local Pediatric Dentist in Spindale You Can Trust

Our team and doctors, consisting of pediatric dentists and general dentists focusing on children, are highly trained to care for the needs of infants, young children, adolescents, and those with special needs. Please inform us of any child’s needs when making an appointment so that we can provide the proper provider and treatment plan.

We are here to help establish your child with a dental home that is safe and positive.
