• Rewards for making it – Each patient gets to pick a treat out of the treat machine after they’ve successfully been examined and treated. If you are seeking pediatric dental care and live in the Alabaster, Helena, Hoover, and Pelham, AL areas, the care your child will receive at Medplex Pediatric Dentistry will exceed your expectations. It is recommended that children have their first pediatric dental appointment by age 1. Good hygiene habits start early.
