“I love coming to work every day knowing that my team has the opportunity to change lives,” says Dr. Lauren Young of KIDSHINE® Pediatric Dental Group in Pearl City. “Being able to improve the oral health of our pediatric patients and do so in a fun and friendly environment is really rewarding.” As a mother herself, Dr. Young empathizes with the concerns that many parents have regarding their children’s oral health. “Our goal is to build a trusting relationship with our patients and their families, and we do so by allowing parents in the back and keeping open communication.”
“We aim to provide excellent comprehensive care in all phases of pediatric dentistry. Our focus is on prevention and education, therefore we like to see our patients by age 1 or after their first tooth erupts,” says Dr. Young. “Our office welcomes all toddlers, children and adolescents, including those with special needs.
Dr. Young is a board-certified pediatric dentist who strives to stay on the forefront of new technology and materials. “We are currently utilizing silver diamine fluoride to stop decay in children who may not be able to tolerate treatment. We also offer beautiful porcelain (zirconia) crowns for patients looking for a more aesthetic option to baby teeth restorations.” Dr. Young also has hospital privileges at Shriner’s Hospital for Children to treat patients under general anesthesia.
