Familiar Faces at Valleygate
The doctors at Charlotte Pediatric Dentistry can be found at Valleygate as well. Our very own Dr. David Moore serves as the Dental Director of the facility, overseeing the day-to-day operations.
If any cavities are seen during the exam/radiographs, then we prescribe treatment of various kinds.
- White fillings
- Stainless steel crowns
- Zirconia crowns
- Silver Diamine Fluoride Treatment – a new treatment for young children with cavities that arrests (stops) progression of cavities until patient is old enough to cooperate or general anesthesia can be completed, it turns cavities black.
For trauma, children in pain, etc.
For children who are too young to complete treatment on safely in the office or patients with severe dental anxiety we offer treatment in the office under general anesthesia where all treatment is completed while the patient is asleep, and wakes up cavity free.
For our patients who cannot be safely treated in an “in-office” general anesthesia setting, such as our SN patients, we treat patients at multiple hospital operating rooms around Charlotte.
