Children's Dentistry

Kid's love us and parents trust us!
Care Beyond Measure

We understand that for you, there is nothing more important than the safety and well-being of your child. As parents ourselves, we strive to reflect that same care and concern in our approach to children’s dentistry.

The most important step to early dental success is building a good and trusting relationship with you and your child. During each visit, Dr. Hamm…Learn more about our dentist… will take as long as necessary to make sure you and your child feel safe and comfortable in our family environment.

Our kid-specific appointments include:

  • Using the “Tell. Show. Do” methodology

  • Providing a light and fun environment

  • TV monitors with Netflix and Disney+

  • Showing off our famous office train

  • Having fun and making your child laugh

  • Here for you in an emergency

In addition, our practice is equipped with the safest dental tools and materials, so you can feel confident in the care we provide.

Everything we do at Magnolia Family Dentistry…See what we are all about on the homepage… is about guiding your child onto the path of lifelong healthy dental habits.

Kids' Services

Giving your child a head start with our array of children's dentistry solutions.

Pediatric Dental Services

Dr. Hamm is a proud father of three who knows what it takes to care for children and genuinely enjoys all aspects of working with younger patients. His kind and friendly personality allow him to truly connect with children, get on their level, and understand their fears. No wonder more than half of Dr. Hamm’s patients are children!

With this in mind, we offer dental services specially designed for kids. These include:

  • Kid-Friendly Dental Exams
  • Hygiene Appointments
  • Cleanings
  • Dental Sealants
  • Mouthguards, and so much more!

Your children’s dentist in Lucedale, MS has vast experience in this area, and together with his love for kids, he provides a dental experience full of joy and comfort.

Nitrous Oxide

We understand how anxious some children get about dental visits and that it can be difficult for some to stay still during treatment. At Magnolia Family Dentistry, we offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help your child feel more comfortable and relaxed.

Before treatment, we ensure your child is settled in the dental chair and administer this mild form of sedation via a nasal hood. When the nitrous oxide is gently inhaled it provides your child with a feeling of total calm.

Be assured, we will monitor your child from beginning to end and you’ll be right there (with you) by their side.

Special Needs Dentistry

Dr. Hamm is passionate about providing all-inclusive dentistry to help patients with special needs. He focuses on providing them with high-quality dental care in a safe and caring environment.

Our kids’ dentist genuinely enjoys working with our special needs patients and is an avid advocate for them inside and outside of the office.

Together, we will create a treatment plan tailored to each patient’s unique dental and emotional needs. Your family is our number one priority, and we adapt to make their visit one to remember.

Hospital Dentistry

Sometimes, a more extensive procedure may require your child to be treated under general anesthesia. This type of sedation eliminates pain and promotes full comfort, while we complete the treatment in a safe and timely manner.

For your convenience, Dr. Hamm has hospital privileges at George Regional Hospital. There, he is able to perform dental services that require the use of general anesthesia, as well as provide emergency dentistry when the unexpected occurs.

My children have been going here for two years now. They love the dentist and his staff.
