Welcome to Growing Smiles!

Helping little smiles stay healthy!

At Growing Smiles pediatric dentistry, we want to help your little one develop good dental health habits early on!  We serve the communities of Lawrence, Topeka and Kansas City, KS.

Dr. Kelli Henderson and our friendly team love each little smile that comes through our door, and it’s our goal to create a fun, educational, comforting experience that has a positive impact on the way your child feels about visiting the dentist.

We believe in building strong patient-doctor-parent relationships, so we focus heavily on open communication and treatment education. Our “Tell-Show-Do” approach to treatment has been very successful with our young patients.

First, we explain in simple language what we’re planning to do. Next, we find a creative way to show what we are going to do, and finally, we start the treatment. It’s as simple as 1-2-3!

Sometimes it can take more than just a simple three-step process to ease nerves. For patients with feelings of anxiety, Dr. Henderson offers safe, gentle, and effective sedation dentistry and anesthesia.

No matter how your child feels before visiting the dentist, it is our promise that we will do everything we can to make sure your little one leaves our practice feeling happy, confident, and excited about keeping his or her smile healthy!

Please contact our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Henderson and learn more about pediatric dentistry and ways to help maintain your child’s dental health.

We look forward to helping children grow up with the healthy, happy smile they deserve.
