Trusted Pediatric Dentist Near Mesquite, TX

High-Quality Children’s Dentistry

Our dental team in Mesquite specializes in pediatric dentistry. We ensure your child establishes a healthy relationship with the dentist by providing positive memories. Their experience with going to the dentist should be comfortable, inviting, and enjoyable. We aim to make having pristine dental health a fun and attainable goal!

Many Services Under One Roof

We specialize in helping kiddos in all areas of dentistry! We provide much more than just general dentistry. Our experienced team has expertise in a variety of areas so you can meet all of your dental needs in one space.


Preventative Dentistry

While we treat issues as they come up, our ultimate goal is to prevent problems from the get go. We can prevent dental issues from occurring through treatment methods such as dental sealants, oral cancer screenings, fluoride, gum disease treatment, and more. We make sure your child is on the right dental track so they won’t have any larger problems down the road.

Restorative Dentistry

If your child does experience dental problems, we offer many restorative services to get their oral health back to pristine condition. Our general dentists are trained and capable of performing minor dental procedures. During bi-annual appointments, the dentist will do a thorough examination to make sure your child doesn’t need additional treatments to solve any outstanding issues.

We can complete treatments such as dental crowns and bridges, fillings, root canals, wisdom tooth extractions, and more.


No more driving from the dentist to the orthodontist – with Rio, it’s all under one roof! Our board-certified orthodontists have years of experience straightening teeth and perfecting smiles. We offer several orthodontic methods including traditional braces and Invisalign clear braces. Depending on your preference and your dental needs, we’ll work together to come up with an orthodontic plan that is personalized for you.

Sedation Dentistry

Does your little one get nervous? If they tend to get the jitters before coming to the dentist, or if they need a slightly more invasive procedure, we can offer them sedation dentistry. Our effective yet safe techniques will allow them to relax and be less anxious about being at the dentist. However, with our fun environment and friendly staff, we hope they never are to begin with!

Family Dentistry

Rio isn’t just for the kids – it’s for the whole family! Our dental staff is trained specifically to work with children, but are glad to see adult patients as well. The whole family can get their check-ups and dental treatments done in one visit!

Patient Info

  • Your Child's First Visit

  • Appointment Scheduling
  • Insurance
  • Finances
  • CareCredit

You can play a part in preparing your child for his or her first visit to our office. Informing your child of the visit as an exciting experience for both of you can ease any hesitations. As a parent try to act relaxed, since your child may sense any anxiety on your part.

Explain to your child that the doctor will “count, brush, and maybe take pictures of their teeth”. We also ask that you assume the role of a silent observer. Cooperation and trust must be established directly between the doctor, staff, and your child and not through you. Your child may become confused if receiving instructions from multiple sources.

We recommend bringing your baby in for their first dental appointment by their first birthday, or within 6 months of their first tooth appearing (whichever comes first). During this appointment, we will examine your baby’s mouth to track their dental development and discuss age-appropriate dental care.

It’s easy to make appointments to visit our office online or over the phone. Rio Dental sees patients both for checkups and dental emergencies. Using our online scheduler, you can select the location and time slot that works best for you for either type of appointment. If you have any questions regarding our practice, or simply prefer to make your appointment with a live member of staff, please don’t hesitate to call!

Rio Dental Group accepts most PPO insurances. We recommend that new patients and returning patients with new insurance policies reach out to us before their appointment to confirm coverage. Our Fort Worth location also sees patients who are covered by Medicaid and CHIP programs.

We don’t like surprises, either! Our staff is prepared to discuss the cost of dental services before you undergo treatment so that you know what to expect in terms of fees. The cost of your services will be due at the end of your appointment. Our office accepts payment by cash, credit card, or check.

Rio Dental Group allows patients to pay with their CareCredit card. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card designed to cover out-of-pocket costs at over 225,000 providers nationwide. After leaving the office, card holders will be able to make convenient monthly payments towards their balance. To learn more, visit the CareCredit website.
