“When you first walk into the doors of Barefield Pediatric Dentistry you feel the warmth and you are always greeted by a person who cares about your child. My daughter has been a patient since she was 2. She is now 12. She loves going to the dentist. I HIGHLY recommend Barefield Pediatric Dentistry.

Claire E., Dallas, TX

“My children receive excellent care and truly enjoy their dental visits. The office and Dr. Donna seem to truly love kids and what they do. And in doing so, they have transformed a trip to the dentist (which can induce angst in most adults) into a fun and enjoyable outing.”

Monica K., Duncanville, TX

“Dr Barefield is the best pediatric dentist! Always keeps my son calm during the procedures and has so much patience for the kids."

Sedation Dentistry
Options Available

We understand – most kids would rather be out on the playground instead of at the dentist’s office. Despite our gentle team’s best efforts to create a soothing environment, many young patients struggle with anxiety, discomfort, or even outright fear about these visits. Others may have special needs that make it difficult to sit still in the treatment chair and receive treatment safely. Thankfully, Barefield Pediatric Dentistry offers professional sedation options, both here in our office and within a hospital setting. Your son or daughter’s comfort is always a top priority!

Frequently Asked Questions, Answered!

As a parent, you only want the best care possible for your family. Rest assured – our team at Barefield Pediatric Dentistry is passionate about helping growing smiles thrive. Before bringing your little ones to our practice, it’s understandable to have some concerns. For your convenience, we’ve decided to answer some frequently asked questions below. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to reach out for assistance!

How Do I Get Emergency Pediatric Care?

Your child's oral health is our top priority, and we're here to provide prompt care when you need it most. If your little one faces a dental emergency, reach out to our practice immediately. Our team is ready to assist you and guide you through the process. If needed, we will pencil your child in that very same day for an appointment. Dental emergencies can indicate underlying issues, so routine appointments are essential for preventing future complications and preserving those precious smiles!

How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Pediatric Dental Work Done?

First things first, you need to identify your family’s priorities. It can help to ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I want an in-network provider or one that offers multiple payment options?
  • Do I want to visit an office that’s closer to my home or my child’s school?
  • Do I want a provider that offers routine check-ups, cleanings, braces, major restorative work, or cosmetic dentistry?

Once you find a practice, evaluate their approach to patient care. Personalized attention and one-on-one interactions are crucial for your child's comfort. Check out patient reviews and read the doctor and staff bios on the website. Look for custom photos and videos to gain deeper insights and find a dentist who aligns perfectly with your criteria.

How Can I Make a Same-Day Appointment?

The best way to make a same-day appointment is by calling our practice directly. Do not send an email! Otherwise, you will not get an answer as quickly as you’d want. By giving us a call, we can better understand your child’s situation and determine whether or not they need to be seen that same day.

Another way to request an appointment is by completing the form on our website. After you submit it, a member of our team will reach out to you as soon as possible to confirm your request and answer any questions you may have. We want your family to feel confident about choosing us for your child’s care!

What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?

Prevention is the key to a healthy smile. Bringing your little one to our practice every six months for a checkup and cleaning is a great way to prevent serious dental problems. If you have dental insurance , you can use it to help pay for your child’s dental care. We happily accept most major PPO insurance, some HMOs, and Medicaid!

Additionally, we offer third-party financing through CareCredit to accommodate the cost of extensive procedures. It allows you to split up the total cost of your care into smaller monthly installments, ensuring you stay within your budget.
