Welcome to Our Practice
Welcome to Arrowhead Children’s Dentistry & Orthodontics, located in Glendale, AZ, a pediatric and orthodontic specialty dental office led by Dr. Jesse McGuire.
Dr. McGuire is an experienced orthodontist who is excited to build on the foundation of excellence established by our former owner, Dr. Jane Thomason. Our current patients won’t notice any significant changes, but we have added orthodontics, sedation dentistry, and wisdom teeth extractions so your children can get all the oral care they need in one comfortable, familiar location.
Dr. Nicholas Bland and Dr. Stephanie Sotello are experienced pediatric dentists who have studied extensively beyond dental school and have a wealth of knowledge and expertise. They are genuinely warm and friendly and committed to helping children of all ages enjoy a lifetime of happy, healthy smiles.
We Create Positive Experiences and Happy Smiles!
Children need to know that they are in a safe space, where they can visit and expect to always see friendly, familiar faces. Our caring dental team projects warmth and positivity, and their cheerful attitude ensures that kids have happy, stress-free experiences with us.
It requires trust to place your precious child’s care in someone else’s hands, and we are honored that you are considering us. Rest assured that we care deeply about their comfort, safety, and well-being and will treat your child with the same care and compassion we expect for our children.
Pediatric Dentistry from Infants to Teens
From your child’s first “happy” visit to braces and everything in between, we’ll ensure that your child’s smile stays happy and healthy through every stage of development.
We provide preventive dental exams and cleanings every six months, fluoride and sealants, dental fillings, baby crowns, baby root canals, and comprehensive orthodontic treatment. Our team supports parents and caregivers by explaining how they can help their child develop positive oral health habits at home.
Childhood dental emergencies are common with busy, active kids. If your child has a toothache, breaks or chips a tooth, or suffers a dental sports injury, please call us right away so we can provide the relief and reassurance you both need.
Orthodontics, Including Traditional Braces and ClearCorrect
Dr. Jesse’s experience and training in orthodontics allows him to offer a full range of services, including traditional braces and ClearCorrect clear aligners for teens. Following the American Association of Orthodontists guidelines, he recommends an orthodontic exam for all children no later than age seven. This doesn’t mean your child will need braces, but it allows Dr. Jesse to determine if they can benefit from early treatment and possibly minimize the need for braces later.
Calming Sedation Dentistry for Children
It’s perfectly normal for young children to feel anxious or restless in the dental chair, but we can help them relax with sedation dentistry. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedation offer different levels of relaxation to help them remain comfortable while we can treat them safely and efficiently.
Wisdom Teeth Extraction
Wisdom teeth or third molars are the last teeth to appear starting in the late teens, and we often recommend removing them.
If your child needs wisdom teeth extraction, Dr. Jesse now offers this service at our comfortable Glendale, AZ, pediatric dental office.
