Welcome to our Palos Heights Pediatric Dental Practice!
Welcome to Palos Pediatric Dentistry. It is our mission to treat your children as we would treat our own, and we do this with a strong focus on prevention and education. It is important to us to provide our patients and their parents with the tools necessary to promote healthy habits at home, where excellent dental care begins.
When treatment is necessary, we provide it in a compassionate and gentle manner. We focus on addressing the problem while keeping your child calm and comfortable. Our treatment approach is conservative because we know most parents want to avoid any unnecessary treatment. When we make treatment recommendations, we will share with you why it is important to the health of your child.
Creating a Partnership With Parents
We value parent-patient involvement, and that is why we welcome parents to our treatment rooms for their child’s dental appointment. We believe, with the proper approach, a parent’s presence can help to calm and support their child.
We value communication with parents and our patients. Treatment options are developed for every patient, and it is our goal to provide you with the information you need to make the best decisions for your child. We will inform you of the costs of treatment in advance as well as offer flexible payment options so you will not be caught off-guard with unexpected bills.
We communicate with your child in terms that help them to understand treatment without frightening them. Our team is expertly trained for effective communication with our patients of all ages.
Customized Treatment Options
Our focus on overall health really sets us apart from other offices. At Palos Pediatric Dentistry, Palos Heights pediatric dentist Dr. Richard Facko creates each treatment plan based on your child’s individual dental needs and health. Our patients are people, not numbers. Prevention plans, x-rays, fluoride, check-up intervals, and dental treatment are all customized to your child’s needs. Children vary in their susceptibility to cavities and their temperaments. Both of these factors are considered for every child when developing an approach to dental treatment.
High Quality Care In a Relaxed Atmosphere
We provide excellent, high quality dentistry in a relaxed and laid-back environment. Our office has a play area for kids as well as DVD players in the treatment rooms for the enjoyment of our patients. We invite you to make yourself at home when you are in our office.

Whenever possible, we work with families to help prevent cavities in children. From healthy diet to brushing techniques, our office focuses on prevention at each check-up visit. Sometimes, children with cavities are referred from other offices. At other times, despite everyone's best efforts, one of our regular patients is diagnosed with cavities. Don't worry! We have plenty of treatment options ...Read More
