Dentistry for Children
What is a Pediatric Dentist?
A pediatric dentist like Dr. Phillips is a specialist dedicated to the oral health of children and the management of their dental development and growth. A pediatric dentist has an additional two to three years of specialty training following dental school and limits their practice to treating children only. Our office is designed for treating children from infancy through adolescence, as well as children with special health care needs. We understand that children have unique dental and behavioral needs compared to adults. In addition to treating existing dental problems, we focus on prevention through patient and parent education. We will provide all of the educational tools necessary for our patients to enjoy a cavity-free future.
Establishing Your Child’s Dental Home
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry encourages parents and other care providers to help every child establish a dental home by 12 months of age. Establishing a dental home provides some key components to dental care for your child including...

Dr. Alexis Phillips grew up outside of Atlanta in a medical family with three younger brothers. She attended the University of Georgia, graduating Summa Cum Laude. She then obtained her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree at the Dental College of Georgia. She graduated top of her class and was awarded membership into Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU) National Dental Honor Society.
Following dental school, Dr. Phillips’ love of kids led her to continue her education with two years of specialty training in pediatric dentistry at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, one of the top 3 ranked children’s hospitals in the country. Residency at Cincinnati Children’s provided her with extensive training in treating the dental needs of infants, children, adolescents, and patients with special developmental or medical needs.

First Pediatric Dental Visit
Request a Visit
Dr. Phillips and her team are dedicated to great dental experiences. We, along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, recommend you bring your child for their first check-up when their first tooth appears or by their first birthday.
During your first visit, you will be introduced to our children’s dental team and have a tour of our office. We will also discuss your child’s unique smile and ways to keep it beautiful for years to come.
We request that you complete our "New Patient Forms" prior to arriving for your appointment. This helps our office keep you and everyone else’s scheduled visit on time.
Your initial exam will last approximately 30 minutes. Oral hygiene instructions will be given with suggestions to help you and your child care for their teeth.
In most cases, we will clean your child's teeth on this visit and provide an evaluation that will outline any existing dental problems and proposed treatment.
Please print and fill out our New Patient Forms.
Bring them with you to your first appointment. Thank you.
