Diagnostic Services

At Yakima Pediatric Dentistry, we’ve designed our services to provide optimal dental care for infants, children and pre-teens.  We work hard to educate you and your child on proper dental hygiene, and encourage active participation with our patients and their families so that together we can help your child develop proper oral hygiene practices that will last a lifetime.



Getting regular check-ups is the best protection against childhood decay, early tooth loss, pain and other serious dental conditions. Establishing a dental home for your child will significantly reduce the risk for dental anxiety. The American Association of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend having your child’s first dental check-up by age one. We recommend your children get a complete dental exam and cleaning once every six months.


This is a valuable diagnostic tool we use to identify potential problems with your child’s teeth. Unlike traditional X-rays, the digital technology of a diagnostic tool does not expose your child to harmful radiation.

A Tip From Dr. Ashley!

"Tell Dr. Ashley if your children are grinding their teeth or jaw clenching."
