Proper Dental Care Begins in Infancy: Schedule Now

It is crucial to begin caring for a child’s teeth the moment they develop. Doing so will improve their overall health and the future status of their teeth. At Smile Big Dental Specialists, we take care of children from their infancy through their teens. Our Oak Hill, IL practice’s pediatric dentistry practice includes everything from early-age dental care to braces and Invisalign®. By performing continuous dental care through the years, we ensure children’s oral health develops correctly.

Our Pediatric Dental Services

We can address a wide range of childhood and teenage oral health issues at our practice. Some are more significant than others. But perhaps one of the most vital tasks we complete is educating children about the importance of sound oral health.

We compassionately take care of their teeth by:

Treating Baby Teeth

Even though baby teeth are not permanent, they still require the same care level as permanent teeth. Once teething begins (around six months old), you need to bring your baby to see us because the enamel on their teeth is thinner than ours.

Rectifying Thumb Sucking

Thumb sucking, while expected, can cause serious alignment issues and create a financial headache down the line in the form of orthodontics. Therefore, it is important to wean children off of thumb sucking as soon as possible.

Providing Emergency Services

Children have accidents. They bust a tooth during soccer practice and fall while running through the house. We are here when this happens. We can replace and pull teeth quickly to reduce pain.

Dental Cleanings and Exams

As your child’s baby teeth fall out and are gradually replaced by adult teeth, we continue to perform twice-yearly cleanings. Not only do their non-permanent and permanent teeth need care, but these appointments will reinforce positive behavior.

Pulling Loose Teeth

We can pull loose baby teeth if you want. While these teeth will eventually fall out on their own, we can speed the process up – either at their next checkup or during a dedicated appointment.

We Boast a Warm and Welcome Environment

At Smile Big Dental Specialists, we understand many children dread the dentist. We wanted to create a welcoming environment where there is nothing to fear. Our office features plenty of toys and books. The dentists have experience working with children, ensuring your child will continue dental visits throughout their life. We believe many adults who visit the dentist inconsistently may have had bad experiences in childhood. We work tirelessly to ensure that doesn’t happen here.

Client Testimonials

Gina H.

I have over 15 years experience in clinical dentistry and dental laboratory management. I can honestly say that Dr. Arredondo gives the best, most honest care that I have ever received. He does great work, its pain free, the office is clean, staff is professional. My parents also go here and they really love him as well. I've worked for a lot of Dentists who, in my opinion, treatment plan extra services just to bill extra production. That IS NOT the case at this office. They will take care of your needs and nothing more/nothing less. Rest assured. As a patient of this office for upwards of 7 years... I highly recommend Smile Big Dental Specialists.

Reyna S.

My boyfriend and I visited their new location at 1S376 Summit Ave in Oak Brook Terrace, IL and absolutely adored the place. The location was very clean and updated and the staff was friendly as well as informative! I hadn't been to the dentist in a while so I'm outdated on technology but it was amazing to see the newer instruments used for the X-rays and cleanings! My hygienist David was very gentle, kind and answered everything I had questions about. The doctor came in later after my cleaning and went over everything again and informed me on how to properly care for the issues I was having...

Kekee R.
