Welcome to Shelby Pediatric Dentistry

At Shelby Pediatric Dentistry, our mission is to provide exceptional, individualized oral healthcare for infants, children, adolescents, and patients with special needs in a fun and compassionate environment. We partner with parents and focus on prevention and early detection of dental diseases in order to help our patients establish a lifetime of healthy habits. We believe every child is a blessing, and it is our privilege to serve them.

Dr. Baxter and Dr. McFarland are friendly and gentle board-certified pediatric specialists who know that some children are scared of the dentist and dental equipment, so they always strive to make your child feel safe and comfortable. Parents are invited to accompany their children into the treatment rooms for cleanings and treatment. Dr. Baxter and Dr. McFarland will even let your little ones touch and hold the instruments. We would be honored to care for your children!

These are such important developmental years for oral health, so we make sure your child receives the state-of-the-art care they deserve.

Dr. Baxter lectures nationally and has created two online courses for treating tongue-ties in infants to adolescents on DentalTown.com the largest dental community online. You can click the image to see the courses.
