What Sets Us Apart

Setting the Foundation for a Lifetime of Beautifully Healthy, Wonderful Smiles!

Early experiences shape a child’s feelings about dentistry that last well into adulthood. The more positive, painless, and fun dental visits they have, the better!

At Children’s Dental Specialists, we know the crucial role we play: by ensuring a safe, laughter-filled space, we help children grow up feeling at home in a dental office. Our patients graduate to adult practices with bright, healthy smiles, and a positive outlook on caring for their teeth.

We would be honored to be your partners, providing dental care and education, so your child grows up with their best smile – and excited to keep it healthy, for life!

Why Choose Children’s Dental Specialists?

Ours is a dual-specialty, child-centered practice, seeing infants, children, teens, and youth with special healthcare concerns. We have served Richardson, Carrollton, and surrounding communities since 1980, offering leading-edge care tailored to a family’s desires and the child’s clinical, emotional, and developmental needs.

Our pediatric dentists, Dr. Candice Hutcheson, Dr. Terri Train, and Dr. Blair Goodall, and our orthodontist, Dr. Rodney Lewis, are highly-trained. They each have completed two years of additional education following dental school.

The doctors stay current in their specialties through continuing education, in order to provide advanced treatment and predictable, healthy results.

Our Commitment to Exceptional Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics

  • Personalized Care: We take time to get to know each of our patients and their families, and tailor treatment to individual needs. In doing so, we foster trust with our young patient and their parents, so children have fun and positive dental visits!
  • Preventive Care and Education: We work closely with parents and children to establish optimal oral health, focusing on prevention and healthy behaviors. With useful, practical guidance, and lots of encouragement, we set children on the path to a lifetime of healthy smiles!
  • Stable Practice: We have very low turnover, so patients and families get to know their providers and develop real connections with their smile care team. Continuity of care is essential, as children learn we will always be here for them!
