Welcome to our pediatric practice
Welcome to the office of Kearns & Ashby Pediatric Dentistry. Our pediatric dental practices in Harrisburg and Mechanicsburg strive to make this new experience for your child a fun and rewarding one. We understand the importance of establishing a good oral hygiene regimen early in a child’s life and we provide children’s parents with the necessary knowledge and treatment to maintain a healthy smile.
One thing that stands out when you walk into our office is how much fun we have here. Our staff truly enjoys spending time with children and we have a blast interacting with them. You may come in one day and see all of us dressed in our pajamas or see us looking crazy on wacky hair day. We strive to make the office a fun place for our patients and staff!

What is a Pediatric Dentist?
Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. A pediatric dentist has two to three years specialty training following dental school and limits his/her practice to treating children only. Pediatric dentists are primary and specialty oral care providers for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs.
We understand that some children are fearful or too young to cooperate and our doctors have additional methods to help your child through treatment. All dentists in our office are licensed to provide nitrous oxide analgesia (laughing gas) and conscious sedation. In addition, our doctors have privileges at area hospitals, enabling us to provide treatment under general anesthesia if needed.
