Services

We offer a range of preventative, restorative, and emergency dental procedures to keep your child in good oral health. Prevention is often better than the cure so we strongly urge that you take your child in for a dental cleaning and checkup every 6 months to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

During your child’s bi-annual checkup, we can also apply a fluoride treatment to protect their teeth from cavities. We highly recommend that you have dental sealants placed on your child’s first and second permanent molars at age 6 and 12, which seal the pits and grooves on these teeth to reduce the likelihood of developing cavities by 80%.

If any cavities are detected during their checkup, we can fill them with tooth-colored composite resin fillings. Other restorative treatments include space maintainers for prematurely lost teeth, dental crowns which can protect weak or damaged teeth, and frenectomies that can correct tongue ties.
 
In rare cases, your child could need an extraction, but this is always a last resort in dentistry. We will do everything we can to protect and save your child’s teeth and the best way to do that is through prevention.

If your child ever experiences a dental emergency such as severe tooth pain, bleeding, a knocked-out or loose tooth, or infection, we can treat them right away with same-day dental appointments. It’s incredibly important to us at Desert Kids Dental to prevent things from becoming worse and ensuring your child gets the prompt care they need to relieve pain and protect them from becoming hurt.

Meet Dr. Patrick Thompson

Your Las Vegas Family Dentist

Dr. Patrick Thompson was raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he attended the magnet program at Clark High School. Passionate about learning, he continued his education at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV), where he earned his undergraduate degree. Fascinated by health and science, Dr. Thompson also achieved his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from UNLV and gained the extensive skills and knowledge needed to help others enjoy healthier, happier lives with thriving smiles.
 
Dr. Thompson met his wife (Dr. Sandra Thompson!) during their first year of his dental program, and got married just one week after graduating dental school. After moving to Cincinnati, Ohio for his wife’s pediatric residency, Dr. Thompson and his wife made their way back to Las Vegas — the place they would proudly call home and start a family. Today, Dr. Thompson is a caring husband, father, and dentist, who loves treating families and developing genuine patient friendships. As a father of twins, Dr. Thompson is thrilled to create a positive difference in the lives of children, teens, and their parents by shaping fun and meaningful appointments, instilling confidence, and providing the highest quality care.

Beyond his practice, Dr. Thompson enjoys hiking in Nevada’s beautiful landscapes, traveling to the mountains or the beach with his wife and kids, and exploring local cuisine.

Amenities

We want both parent and child to feel relaxed and at home in our office. For adults, we provide a relaxing atmosphere in our chic office while your child can roam around in our child-friendly iPad station to keep them occupied and entertained. If your child suffers from dental anxiety or restlessness, we offer dental sedation in the form of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) which can be used during any dental treatment.

Nitrous oxide induces your child into a relaxed, somewhat sleepy, and euphoric state. Sedation also has the effect of reducing sensitive gag reflexes and pain sensitivity. Sedation can be useful for young children who are unable to cooperate during procedures. 

Inside of each of our treatment rooms, you’ll find a TV on the wall, which can play whatever your child would like to watch during their appointment. This can be a nice distraction for them and can relieve the stress associated with the procedure itself.

Book Your Next Appointment

If you have a child in the Providence area, consider booking their next appointment with a pediatric dentist at Desert Kids Dental where they’ll get the most compassionate, child-centered care. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Sandra Thompson, contact us at 702-660-7099 today.
