How We Help Our Kids
At Duo Orthodontics, you’ll find a full range of pediatric dental services to keep your child’s smile in shape! Dr. Paul Kim and his expert team offer the following pediatric dentistry services:
- Early Assessment
- Cleanings + Exams
- Fillings + Sealants
- Pediatric Crowns
- White Crowns
- Stainless Steel Crowns
- Pulp Therapy
Giving your child a head start on their oral hygiene in Tucker & Marietta helps Dr. Kim detect any potential issues early and determine if and when to start treatment.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and Dr. Paul Kim recommend that children be seen by six months after their first tooth erupts or at one year of age, whichever comes first.
Cleanings & Exams
Cleanings remove mineralized plaque that can be hard to get with at-home brushing.
Afterward, Dr. Kim will perform a thorough exam to discuss hygiene, examine the mouth visually and review X-rays.
Your child might need a tooth extraction at Duo Orthodontics for several reasons.
Depending on your child's age and health, we can make your child more comfortable and extract their tooth by using a local anesthetic or together with a type of sedation.
Fillings & Sealants
A sealant is a clear or tooth-colored protective coating that protects the grooves on the back teeth that can be hard to clean.
Dr. Kim uses fillings to restore teeth that may be damaged by decay or trauma. Sealants help to stop the need for fillings in the future.
You can choose white, stainless steel, or metal crowns to restore your child’s smile.

When Should My Child See the Pediatric Dentist?
Dr. Kim, The American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists recommend that children have a dental check-up by their first birthday and continue to see the dentist every six months.
One in three toddlers already has a cavity, even though they’re entirely preventable. Poor dental health can affect a child’s health, growth, speech, and self-esteem.
