From routine checkups to pain-free treatment, Dr. Geetha Srinivasan offers gentle oral care for children from infancy to adulthood. Our pediatric dental services include preventative care, fillings, sealants, root canal, laser dentistry, emergency dental care, and orthodontic care including traditional braces and Invisalign®. We also fabricate custom fitted TekFit custom athletic mouth guards in our office.
First Impressions Matter
A child’s first experience at the dentist can have lasting effects on his/her feelings about dental visits and oral health care. The highly trained staff at Collegeville Gentle Dentist truly cares about your child’s comfort. We know new experiences can cause anxiety, and we take the time to explain procedures, encourage questions and alleviate any stress.
Oral Health Care For Every Stage
As a family dental practice, we have many patients who started with our practice as children and now trust us with their own children’s dental care. We offer age-appropriate dentistry, based on your child’s development. Collegeville Gentle Dentist follows the American Dental Academy’s recommendation for scheduling baby’s first visit to the dentist before his/her first birthday. Read more about infant oral health.
Kid Friendly Zone
Collegeville Gentle Dentist provides a separate, child-friendly waiting room, fully stocked with books, games, puzzles and a television. This relaxing kids zone is designed to encourage kids to relax and have fun at the dentist – and the space gets rave reviews by our own kids.
Cool Enough For Teens
Our staff ensures young adults feel at ease in our office as well. Teens are better at hiding dental anxiety, and our staff takes the time to address their concerns and encourage their growing independence. We work to give them the confidence to take responsibility for their oral health care and develop good adult dental habits. Collegeville Gentle Dentist offers traditional braces and Invisalign® clear braces, giving your teen one central place for comprehensive dental care.

BPA Free Tooth-Colored Fillings
You may have heard some worrying things about BPA, or Bis-Phenol A, a compound in tooth-colored dental fillings, but don’t go rushing back to silver amalgam just yet. At our Your dentist in Collegeville understands your concerns about the safety of dental materials. That’s why we offer tooth-colored fillings that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also BPA-free.
These advanced composite materials provide a safe and effective alternative to traditional silver amalgam fillings. You can trust that your child’s dental health is our top priority, and we use the latest materials to ensure their well-being.
Nitrous Oxide for Children
We understand that a visit to the dentist can be a daunting experience for children. To help them feel more at ease, we offer nitrous oxide, commonly referred to as laughing gas. Nitrous oxide is a colorless, odorless gas consisting of two nitrogen atoms and one oxygen atom bonded together.
Studies have indicated that it can reduce a patient’s perception of pain and increase the release of dopamine, creating a calm and comfortable atmosphere during dental procedures. Our skilled team ensures that the administration of nitrous oxide is safe and tailored to your child’s unique needs, allowing them to relax and even laugh through their dental appointments.
Pit and Fissure Sealant
The chewing surfaces of molars, with their deep crevices and fissures, can be a haven for bacteria and plaque. To protect your child’s precious teeth from decay, we offer pit and fissure sealants. These are specially designed to fill in and cover any crevices on the tooth’s surface, creating a shield against bacterial intrusion. Sealants can reduce the risk of cavities in the molar teeth by up to 80% and are extremely easy to apply (for the patient as well as the children’s dentist!).
Our dental professionals make the application process quick and painless, ensuring your child’s comfort during the procedure. With pit and fissure sealants, your child can enjoy a layer of defense against cavities, all while experiencing a relaxed and stress-free visit to our pediatric dentistry practice. And sealants aren’t only for kids. We’re happy to discuss whether sealants would be a good option to protect your teeth as well.
