Dental Care For the Whole Family
Everyone needs to see the dentist. That’s why Dr. Kneib and the Broadway Dentistry team offer comprehensive family dentistry treatment. No matter your age or dental needs, rest assured we can provide you with the absolute highest quality dental care available. With an emphasis on prevention, we make understanding your dental treatment options simpler for you. Our goal is to deliver excellence in dentistry with as conservative dental treatment as possible.
Visiting the dentist every six months is more important than one might think. During these visits, our dentist uses specialized tools to remove deep-set plaque and tartar from your teeth. But semi-annual exams go far beyond simple cleaning. We also use these appointments to provide regular cancer screenings,
Pediatric Dental Care
Children’s dentistry services should begin as soon as possible. The primary goal of pediatric dentistry is to keep your child’s teeth healthy while building strong, healthy dental habits for their future. Providing a good foundation for your child’s dental care helps minimize dental issues well into adulthood.
Tongue-tie and Lip-tie Solutions
Is your new baby having difficulty latching? If you’re trying to breastfeed your newborn and you find they’re struggling to latch, your baby may have a tongue-tie or a lip-tie. These conditions occur when the skin under either the upper lip or tongue is too short or tight. When this happens, it makes it very difficult for a new baby to latch and swallow properly.
At Broadway Dental, we offer frenectomy treatments. This is a minor oral surgery designed to free your baby’s mouth. There’s no sedation required, and it only takes a few minutes.
Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral that helps strengthen enamel and prevents decay. As part of your child’s preventive care, we provide fluoride treatment in the form of a highly concentrated gel. This safe solution is applied with a swab or brush or placed in a tray that’s held in the mouth for several minutes. Getting the right amount of fluoride is important for the health of your child’s teeth. We’ll work with you to make the best decisions regarding your child’s preventive care.
Misaligned or overcrowded teeth are more than cosmetic flaws. Crooked teeth are hard to keep clean, and smiles with poor oral hygiene can result in cavities, tooth decay, and gum disease. Fortunately, Dr. Kneib can realign your smile with orthodontic care at our Broadway dental office.
Early-stage intervention orthodontics is a treatment reserved for very specific situations. Much like orthodontics with adults, or children with their adult teeth, early intervention is for children who still have their baby teeth. With early-stage intervention treatments, our dentist can help correct certain jaw and bite problems, allowing room for permanent teeth to erupt and lessening the chance of future orthodontic work.
Childhood is often the best time to receive orthodontic care. With pediatric orthodontics, the child’s teeth and jaw are still growing, and this makes them more malleable. For children with misaligned teeth, we offer braces and retainers.
Adults want beautiful smiles too! Realign your missing teeth with braces, and Invisalign.

We’ll also provide them with instructions on proper oral hygiene habits.
