Academy Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics is a dental practice located in Pickerington, Ohio that provides specialty care for infants, children, adolescents and patients with special needs.
Dr. Richard Loochtan and his staff believe that positive dental visits at an early age last a lifetime. As a result, we feel that it is important to establish a "dental home" by age 12 months and are dedicated to creating comfortable, caring and pleasant experiences for young patients. Dental assistants and hygienists have been selected not only for their expertise in dentistry but for their love of children.
Prevention is always better than treatment, and dental education is an important part of our practice. Parents are provided with helpful tips that make brushing and flossing easier. Recommendations regarding proper diet and fluoride levels are routinely discussed.
Restorative care, orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry and treatment of dental injuries are services that are offered. Nitrous oxide and treatment in the operating room for children with extensive needs are available. In all areas, Dr. Loochtan and his staff try to help guide children through dental visits that are fun, not fearful.
Your children are special - they deserve special care!
