Our Pediatric Dental Services
Dr. Richard W. Kennedy and his staff welcome you to Chew Chew Junction. Dr. Kennedy, a Cincinnati native, has been carefully tending to the residents of Fairfield and Oxford children for over three decades.
Chew Chew Junction knows the importance of a young patient’s comfort with the dental office environment as well as dental care in general. To make sure his patients get the best possible start to their programs of dental hygiene and periodic maintenance, Dr. Kennedy and his assistants take time to explain their jobs, procedures and tools to your child in an age-appropriate manner.
Because education is the cornerstone of high-quality dental care, Chew Chew Junction incorporates a little education into each of your child’s visits. Experience has taught the Chew Chew staff that children respond best when they know what to expect from their visits to the dentist.
Dr. Kennedy knows, however, that kids just like to have fun too. His offices are bright, cheerful and full of inviting books, decorations, games and toys to keep your child’s mind at ease and forge positive associations with dental care.
Dr. Kennedy and his staff provide a full spectrum of pediatric dental services, including:
- Routine cleanings, scaling, polishing and flossing
- Checkups twice per year
- Fluoride treatments for cavity prevention and enamel protection
- Infant oral care
- Sealants to minimize tooth decay
- Bleaching and bonding
- Tooth-colored fillings, caps and veneers
- Injury and emergency dental care
- Space maintenance
- Consultation regarding thumb sucking
- Custom sports mouth guards and night guards
The Chew Chew staff completes a thorough review of your child’s health status, gum and dental history before planning a course of action or performing any procedures.
If you have a dental emergency, Dr. Kennedy should be your first call. He is on staff at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. In fact, he is the past president of the pediatric dental division. If your child’s issue exceeds what Dr. Kennedy can properly handle in his office, he can see that your child receives every appropriate level of care at the Children’s Hospital.
