Gentle, Personalized Care

We want you and your child to feel at ease from the moment your family arrives at our office. The more you and your child know about the first visit, the better you will feel.

We even use magic tricks and will paint your child’s finger nails if they are feeling nervous as an icebreaker. (Or if your child requests them, we love to make everyone smile!)

How old should my child be for their first visit?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends children should visit the dentist by their first birthday. It is important that your child’s newly-erupted teeth (erupting at six and 12 months of age) receive proper dental care and benefit from proper oral hygiene habits right from the beginning.

Traditional braces - Orthodontist in Shoreview, MN - Vibrant Dental


We are always trying to understand the root cause of dental problems in our adult patients like teeth grinding, snoring, and orthodontic relapse, and that has led us to changes in how we look at and treat our pediatric patients. At Vibrant Dental we are looking at how we can ensure a better dental future for our pediatric patients.

We use orthodontics as early as age 4 to expand and correct crossbites.

We use myofunctional therapy to train your child’s tongue to be in a spot that encourages healthy growth and development.

Minimally Invasive Dentistry

We focus on prevention at Vibrant Dental, but when dental work is needed we use minimally invasive techniques to ensure a comfortable dental experience. Sometimes we can treat cavities without even using needles! We want to make sure the next generation of kids has no anxiety about coming to the dentist. Schedule your appointment today!
