As a general rule, kids don’t love visiting the dentist — unless you take them to the pediatric dentist in Midland! We’ve got some great news for families in our area. Dr. Thomas Youngblood is so happy to return to kids’
dentistry in the Panhandle with the grand opening of Midland Kid’s Dentistry. He is joined by Dr. Weston Jones. Both have a real passion for seeing young kids smile healthy and bright, and they can’t wait to meet you and your toddler, adolescent, or teen!
About Your Kids’ Dentists
Dr. Jones was raised on a farm in Utah, where he learned to love animals and value hard work. He studied at Case Western Reserve School of Dentistry and completed an internship in Ketchikan, AK, where he realized he had a true passion for kids’ dentistry.
Dr. Jones brings his strong work ethic and love of pediatric dental care to Midland Kid’s Dentistry. He is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry as well as the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
Dr. Youngblood grew up in San Antonio and earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Dental School. He is a Commissioned Officer in the Texas Army National Guard and also a member of the American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, and an affiliate of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the Permian Basin Dental Society, and the East Texas Dental Society.
Why Visit a Pediatric Dentist?
A general dentist may provide excellent care for your own teeth and gums, but your child has different needs. Pediatric dentists are specialized in caring for young smiles. Cavity prevention is crucial for kids, as their risk of decay is higher until their tooth enamel completely hardens during adolescence. Bite problems that are identified early may also be fixed more easily with early orthodontic intervention.
A pediatric dentist is an expert in the unique needs of growing smiles — and they and their team also know that children need a special, friendly approach to dental care. A pediatric dentist’s office is usually a little more fun for kids, with games, toys, featuring bright colors, bold shapes, and characters they love.
