Gentle Saginaw Kids Dentistry

At Blue Sky Smiles, we have children and families of our own so we understand the level of care you expect for your little ones. We also understand how scary the dentist can be, even for many adults, but especially for kids. Setting the stage for a lifetime of oral health is important at this early stage because these are the years they are absorbing the most information and forming habits they will carry with them for life. Our Saginaw dental team is gentle and friendly to make their visits anything but scary, and we make sure to educate both you and your little one about the importance of taking good care of your teeth and gums.

Our Pediatric Dental Services

We practice an educational and preventive model of dentistry, so we can prevent your child from needing more extensive dental work down the road. We provide routine exams and x-rays for kids, and gentle cleanings to take care of any plaque or tartar they’ve left behind.

Our hygienists are friendly and gentle to make sure they have a pleasant experience in the chair and don’t leave with sore gums or negative feelings about the dentist. We’ll be sure to make them feel completely comfortable before we even look in their mouth. We’ll show them some of the tools we’ll be using to familiarize them with the process before getting started.

Some common dental treatments we provide for our youngest patients include:

Routine Check-Ups 

Routine dental exams are essential to identify and address potential dental issues early. Dr. Robinson takes a gentle approach, ensuring kids are at ease while thoroughly checking for signs of cavities, gum disease, and other potential problems. If X-Rays are required, our team will make this a fun, stress-free experience for our young patients to reduce any fears or anxieties.

Gentle Teeth Cleaning for Kids

Over time, plaque and tartar can accumulate on your child’s teeth, especially if they are still getting the hang of brushing. Our skilled dental hygienists provide gentle yet thorough teeth cleaning to keep your child’s gums and teeth healthy.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel, making it more resistant to decay. Our fluoride treatments are especially designed for children, helping to protect their teeth from cavities. This is often applied during routine cleanings, which we recommend your little ones come in for every 6 months.

Dental Sealants

These are thin protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars and premolars. They act as barriers, preventing cavities by shielding enamel from plaque and acids. They also fill any tiny fissures or cracks on the tooth surface that could eventually lead to decay and cavities.

Space Maintainers

When a baby tooth is lost too early, space maintainers can be used to keep the space open for the permanent tooth to emerge in its correct position. Dr. Robinson, an expert in pediatric dentistry in Saginaw, will guide you on when and if this is needed for your child.


Even minor teeth misalignments can affect your child’s confidence. Dr. Robinson offers custom-fitted retainers to help correct minor misalignments, ensuring your child’s smile is both healthy and confident. This early intervention provides a cost-effective way to correct stray teeth and potentially avoid braces down the line.

Tooth Extractions

While we strive to preserve the natural structure of every tooth, there are instances when a tooth extraction is the best course of action for your child’s overall dental health and well-being.

Tooth extractions for children might be necessary due to:

  • Severe tooth decay that can’t be remedied with a filling or crown.
  • Overcrowding, where removal can aid in proper alignment during orthodontic treatments.
  • Infection or risk of infection.
  • Trauma or injury to a tooth.

At Blue Sky Smiles, Dr. Robinson employs a gentle, compassionate approach to pediatric extractions, ensuring the procedure is as comfortable and stress-free as possible for your child. We offer various sedation options as well as local anaesthesia to minimise discomfort.

  • Routine Exams
  • X-rays
  • Gentle Cleanings
  • Fluoride
  • Sealants
  • Tooth Colored Fillings
  • Extractions
  • Oral Surgery
  • Sedation
  • Mouthguards
  • Emergency Dentistry

Baby’s First Visit

Many folks think pediatric dentistry is not all that important because their baby teeth are only going to fall out anyway. This could not be more dangerous or further from the truth. The truth is, healthy baby teeth set the stage for healthy adult teeth to grow in properly. If you neglect their dental health in the early years, you are only setting them up for a lifetime of oral health problems and embarrassment down the road.

If you have a new addition to your family within the last year, congratulations! You probably already know you should be cleaning your baby’s gums after feeding with a warm wet washcloth. So when should you bring them to our Saginaw kids dentist? Usually, around the time their first tooth emerges, typically around their first birthday. We just want to take a look and make sure everything is developing properly so we can catch any potential problems before they become more difficult to treat.

“We love Dr. Robinson and his staff. Everyone is so friendly and inviting. My kids actually enjoy going to the dentist again!! And I am at ease knowing he takes such good care of us.”
– Suzanne

Brush, Floss, Rinse, Spit!

You should brush your little one’s teeth for them, using a child-sized, soft-bristle toothbrush and a small amount of fluoride toothpaste until they develop the proper knowledge and motor skills to do so themselves, usually around age six. You should floss for them as well until they learn how to do it effectively on their own. You should supervise brushing and flossing until you feel confident to leave them up to their own devices.

Once they are brushing and flossing on their own, you can add a children’s fluoride rinse to help in the fight against tooth decay and gingivitis. Make sure to monitor their fluoride use to ensure their safety. They should always rinse thoroughly and spit to avoid ingesting fluoride.

A Compassionate Approach to Pediatric Dental Care

As a family dentist in Saginaw, we’re acutely aware of the anxieties children and parents may feel about dental procedures. Our mission is to create a nurturing environment where children feel safe and understood. From our child-friendly waiting area to our empathetic dental team, every facet of our practice is designed with your child’s comfort in mind.

If your child requires a pediatric dental procedure or if you have any concerns about their dental health, do not hesitate to reach out to us. At Blue Sky Smiles in Saginaw, TX, under the expert guidance of Dr. Robinson, we are here to provide top-notch pediatric dental care in the most caring manner possible.
