Dr. Branton Richter strives to give children a positive dental experience, establishing a foundation for life-long oral care.

Dry Creek Pediatric Dentistry’s primary goal is to help kids have a good dental experience while maintaining a healthy mouth.

“Our philosophy is that it is as important for a child to have a positive experience at our office as it is to get the dental work completed,” Dr. Richter says.

Regular, positive dental experiences develop life-time habits of healthy dental care.

With the practice’s recent movement into laser dentistry, children have an exciting alternative to drills and shots. Laser dentistry allows minimally invasive access and filling of cavities, leaving as much healthy tooth structure as possible. Better yet, laser dentistry typically requires no anesthetic, so children don’t have to worry about having a numb mouth for several hours after their visit.

Dr. Richter’s specialized training facilitates care for children’s dental needs with additional expertise and precision. After graduating from BYU, Dr. Richter attended dental school at Creighton University in Omaha, Neb. When he finished dental school he completed a pediatric dentistry residency at the University of Minnesota as chief resident.

At Dry Creek Pediatric Dentistry, staff members offer a “baby teeth sealant special” and innovative fluoride treatments to prevent cavities. Dr. Richter and his staff’s specialty training help to accommodate a wide range of patients’ needs and offer an array of sedation options to further comfort your child.

Free Medical Tip: Children should be seen within six months of receiving their first tooth or by age 1. This helps them to have regular, positive dental visits and helps to answer any questions or concerns parents may have.
