Creating Confident Young Smiles for Your Kids


The team at Pediatric Dental Specialists–Hastings believes that every child deserves a smile they love. Having a nice, healthy smile can reduce self-consciousness and boost self-esteem. It also helps to encourage your child to be proactive about brushing and flossing so they can keep their mouth healthy. Our team of pediatric specialists will provide useful tips for cosmetic maintenance and home oral health routines to keep smiles looking and feeling great. This will help your child to embrace a lifetime of healthy, radiant smiles.

Getting to Know Pediatric Dental Specialists–Hastings


Your little one’s comfort is our primary concern. As pediatric dental specialists, every member of our gentle, caring team is an expert at making kids feel at ease throughout their treatment. We take time to get to know our little patients and ensure they are comfortable before any treatment begins. That is one of the huge benefits of visiting a pediatric dentist compared with general dentists. When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, Pediatric Dental Specialists–Hastings prioritizes your child’s oral health and function first. That means any underlying dental issues will be diagnosed and treated before beginning any cosmetic work. It’s this approach that helps us to provide your child with the solid foundation they need for the best possible cosmetic results.

First impression, kids' paradise. Video games and tablets grab the attention of the kids in the waiting area. Our wait is always very minimal. The dental staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Lehn always has a smile and provides top notch dental care. I would recommend Hastings Pediatric Dental Specialists to any of my friends.


Dental Crowns


Dental crowns are a versatile solution for damaged teeth. Stainless steel crowns are typically used for back baby teeth. Their durability helps them protect the teeth until the permanent teeth emerge. Tooth-colored crowns are also available for front teeth as well as back teeth that are visible when your child smiles. Both options for dental crowns are extremely durable, and we adjust the bite as needed to ensure they look and feel great.

Teeth Whitening


Even young teeth can become discolored due to various factors, including diet, dental habits, and certain medications. Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic treatment that works to lift stains and brighten your child’s smile. If your child has healthy gums and no other significant dental issues, they may be a good candidate for teeth whitening. At Pediatric Dental Specialists–Hastings, we offer in-office professional teeth whitening, or we can provide your child with custom whitening trays so they can whiten their teeth at home. If you are concerned about discoloration, ask our team for more information at your child’s next appointment.

Tooth-Colored Fillings


Tooth-colored fillings not only improve the function but also the aesthetics of a child’s smile. We use fillings to restore small- and medium-size cavities. In the past, amalgam was the material of choice; however, most children and parents today prefer tooth-colored fillings because they look completely natural and do not draw attention to the tooth. They are made of a completely safe composite resin material. Because they blend so beautifully with the child’s natural smile, they are practically invisible. No one will know your little one has a filling unless you tell them!

Pediatric Partial Dentures


Pediatric partial dentures are useful as a cosmetic treatment to replace a child’s missing baby teeth. They can restore your child’s smile and help adjacent teeth stay in the right places. Premature loss of baby teeth can adversely affect the rest of the teeth by allowing them to shift, resulting in misalignment as the permanent teeth erupt. Failure to fix any premature gaps can also impede your child’s speech development. The team at Pediatric Dental Specialists–Hastings will customize your child’s partial dentures to fit perfectly for a natural-looking smile they can show with confidence.



Pediatric Dental Specialists–Hastings offers a full range of orthodontic treatments for children. These include Invisalign clear aligners to create a straight, beautiful smile discreetly. Other orthodontic treatments we provide include space maintainers, palatal expanders, braces, and retainers. Check out our orthodontics page orthodontics page for further information about these treatments. After your initial orthodontic evaluation, we offer the option to schedule your child’s orthodontic appointments at either the Hastings or Grand Island location.
