Carolina Kids Community Resources

Please explore the following links for helpful community resources to help you meet your child’s specific healthcare needs:

Dental Care for Children: 

We begin providing dental care for your child right here at Carolina Kids Pediatrics. Starting at 6 months old (for kids who have started teething), we begin offering dental fluoride varnish treatments in our office to decrease risk of early tooth decay. We will continue to provide this every 6 months until your toddler is old enough to transition to the care of a pediatric dentist. We also offer testing of home water wells for fluoride content, and offer prescription fluoride supplements for kids who live in homes with unfluorinated well water. When our patients transition to dental care through a pediatric dentist, we provide the following list of pediatric dental providers in our community:
