Community Kids Dental Opens in Rutland

Community Kids Dental Now Scheduling Appointments

Community Health is celebrating the opening of Community Kids Dental, a dental practice specifically geared to children. Thousands of kids in the Rutland region were left without a dentist last year when a pediatric dentist retired. Community Health recognized the gap in care and immediately began expanding the health center’s dental practice to offer pediatric dentistry.

Pediatric dentist Dr. Safaa Ahmed joins Community Kids Dental from Boston University’s Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine where she specialized in preventative and therapeutic oral health care for children of all ages. “Every child has the right to better oral health. Every child,” said Dr. Ahmed. “At Community Kids Dental we have the opportunity to better their oral health and to make them more educated.”

Pediatric dentistry focuses on dental development, care of teeth, gums and mouth and prevention of decay, disease and injuries. The dentist and hygienist work together to identify problem areas as a child grows and teeth develop. They share with parents how important baby teeth are for future oral health. For young adults, the kids dental team helps adolescents keep their teeth and gums healthy – especially those in braces – and makes sure they keep brushing and cleaning in between teeth correctly.

Community Kids Dental is scheduling appointments and accepting new patients.
We are located at 69 Allen Street, Suite 7, right below Community Dental’s general dentistry practice in Rutland.
