Dr. Prater has many years of experience in pediatric dentistry, orthodontics, and laser treatment making him uniquely qualified to care for the oral health of newborns, infants, growing children, adolescents and teenagers. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you!
A thorough exam will be done to evaluate the health of your child’s teeth, gums and mouth. One of our doctors will evaluate your child’s growth and development and check to make sure your child’s oral development is on track.
The American Association for Orthodontists recommends that every child have an orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. Early detection and treatment gives your child the edge – a much better chance for natural and normal development.
Our Office is among the first pediatric dental offices in the Kansas to have the Solea laser. Solea is changing what it means to go to the dentist. It numbs just the tooth, takes away decay and shapes the tooth for a filling all with no needle or drill!
