At South Hills Dental Specialists, you can trust that you or your child will receive the most comprehensive pediatric and orthodontic treatment available, all under one roof. We want everyone to feel at home and a part of our dental family. We invite you to come in and see what truly sets us apart: our friendly and dedicated dental team, our state-of-the-art office, and our exceptional providers.
Our collaborative ability saves families time and money by offering in-house consultations to ensure that every child receives the best care at the most opportune time. Our pediatric dentists and orthodontists monitor the growth patterns of each child from an early age to ensure an appropriate orthodontic evaluation is completed when growth is most effectively manipulated.
Our office is designed for individuals of all ages. The reception area at South Hills offers a fun kids environment, including a designated kids room, theater, and arcade room. We also have a dedicated waiting area for adults where they can choose to relax or be productive while in the office.
Why choose us for your child’s pediatric dental care?
We understand that every child is different, so we will cater each appointment to align with your child’s unique needs and ensure a successful visit. We understand many parents are uncomfortable not being present for their child’s treatment. Therefore, we allow parents to be present throughout each appointment and also have observation windows to look into each private treatment area.
Each child will also be given a sticker, a balloon, or a special prize at the end of the visit to reward him or her for a job well done.
We use positive verbal reinforcement, distraction, and hands-on instruction to establish a fun, positive environment. Throughout treatment, children are able to enjoy their favorite cartoons on our state-of-the-art, ceiling-mounted Smart TVs.
If necessary, we have the means to employ advanced sedation techniques to assist in making your child more comfortable, such as: nitrous oxide (laughing gas) anxiolysis, oral sedation, IV sedation, or hospital dentistry under general anesthesia. We ensure parent comfort by allowing parents to silently observe each appointment.
It is our goal that every child feel comfortable at each dental appointment. We know that kids sometimes fear the unknown; therefore, we approach every child in a warm, open way. A child’s trust is sacred, and we work hard to earn it. We want every child to leave feeling better than when he or she arrived.
Why choose us for orthodontic treatment?
South Hills Orthodontics provides orthodontic care for people of all ages. When you’re a patient here, you’re our top priority. We’ll treat you with respect and compassion, and always focus on your unique clinical needs and goals.
We’ve equipped our Riverton orthodontic office with state-of-the-art technology, including digital X-rays, which means the safest and most accurate imaging. We also offer a range of leading-edge orthodontic options for children, teens and adults, including Invisalign® clear aligners, Damon Smile® self-ligating braces, and Clarity™ clear braces.
We offer complimentary orthodontic consultations and invite you to schedule one. You’ll come in, receive a tour of the office, meet our team, and talk about your timeline and other concerns. Then Dr. Skanchy will perform an initial exam and develop a custom treatment plan based on your clinical needs and goals.
