Mr. Molar makes a new friend.

The University of Washington Center for Pediatric Dentistry is dedicated to providing the best quality dental education and services to improve the dental health of children ages birth through 18 and children with special needs ages birth through 20. When you come to the Center, you will find:

  • Preventive Care (examinations, cleanings, sealants)
  • Restorative Care (fillings, stainless-steel crowns)
  • Sedation and general anesthesia
  • Social work (to help arrange transportation and assist with financial aid)
  • Staff specially trained in serving children with special needs, such as those with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Down Syndrome, or complex medical issues
  • Access to translation services (120 languages)
  • Convenient location at Magnuson Park, with free parking and on a METRO transit line


How a pediatric dentist treats tooth decay depends on what he or she finds. Fillings may be needed to repair mild decay. Severe decay may require a crown, root canal or removal of the tooth. Get more tooth tips.
