Children's Dentistry

We want every child to have the best chance for a healthy, comfortable smile. Whether your little one is already a regular at Smile Ninja Dental & Orthodontics, or it’s been a while since their last trip to the dentist, we’re here to help. We want to work closely with parents in our judgment-free zone so that every child has the best chance for a confident, healthy smile. We also welcome questions and are always available to speak with you about your child's dental health. 

We are a fun and friendly team at Smile Ninja Dental & Orthodontics—most of us are parents ourselves—and we love the sound of laughing and lively children throughout our dental office.

We also know that kids work best at different levels, which is why we love getting to know your kids and helping them in a way that is fun, interactive, and gives them the tools they need to know how to brush and floss properly.

We provide:

  • Teaching tools like Coco Puff our toy dragon for tooth brushing instruction. Your child will get a turn seeing to Coco Puff's tooth brushing and dental care.
  • Models and instructions about what to expect before the first visit that includes a kit of toy dental tools for your child to play with at home.
  • A kind and gentle team who puts anxious children at ease.
  • A dentist with a funny sense of humor and warm nature.

Children’s Dentistry: Goals for Little Smiles

Our team works hard to make each child feel at home. We also give children goals to reach as they become little Smile Ninjas on their own, encouraging bravery and good habits along the way. We offer plenty of positive reinforcement and of course, prizes!

How Often Should My Child Visit the Dentist?

Our Fort Worth, TX dentist follows the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommendation that kids should see the dentist at least twice per year for exams and cleanings. We make this easy for kids and parents alike with a flexible schedule and by offering adult dental care too.

How We Protect Your Child’s Teeth

Our Smile Ninja, Justin Mund, DDS pays attention to the way your child’s teeth are coming in, making sure they develop properly. He looks for cavities both during the exam and on x-rays.

In older children, he pays special attention to permanent teeth alignment to be sure that your child will not face overcrowding or a crooked smile. We often evaluate kids as young as seven for early orthodontics.

Appointments may include professional teeth cleanings, sealants, and fluoride treatments. Our dentist customizes children’s dentistry based on your child’s unique needs.

Our goal is to give your child healthy teeth and gums for life, which includes encouraging your child to make healthy choices, to feel confident about brushing and flossing, and to aspire to be a little Smile Ninja!

A Partnership with Parents and Children

In our Fort Worth, TX dental office, we do more than fix dental problems, we also like to teach your child about their teeth and make them feel good about the choices they make. We work closely with you, the parent, to ensure you have everything you need to make your little one’s smile glow between visits.

Dentistry for Special Needs or Differently-Abled Children

When it comes to children with special needs, our team is experienced at working with all types of kids and their needs. It’s part of what makes your little one unique!

We have put in long hours of study and practice to make sure every child is able to get the best dental care based on their specific needs. Every child deserves the very best dentistry possible, and we have a few things to help us along the way:

  • Fun distractions for kids.
  • Early quiet hours for a calming environment.
  • Weighted blankets for security.
