North Metro Pediatrics
Apple Tree Dental partners with North Metro Pediatrics to provide on-site dental services!
This means children in the North Metro can combine their Well visits with preventive and/or restorative dental care. This integrated care model reduces travel time, the amount of time a parent is away from work, and the amount of time a child is away from school. Through this partnership Apple Tree provides on-site comprehensive dental services at North Metro Peds, including exams, x-rays, cleanings, fillings, and extractions. (More advanced dental services can be scheduled at one of our nearby Apple Tree Dental Centers.)

Services that may be offered on-site at our Community Partner locations:
Comprehensive dental exam. Remember that dental exams should begin for children as soon as they have their first tooth! We examine the teeth and check for cavities or areas showing abnormal wear. We often take digital x-rays, which allow us to see the areas in-between or under the teeth. At these exams, a head and neck cancer screening is conducted, and we check for oral cancers or ulcers on the gums, tongue, or lips.
Cleanings and Gum Care
A dental sealant is a clear coating that is applied to protect the chewing surface of teeth from forming cavities. It’s a pain-free procedure and doesn’t require any numbing agents. The liquid sealant is simply brushed on the tooth and the sealant is then bonded and hardened using a special light.
