Care Philosophy

Since 1977, Lawrence M. Kenney, D.M.D. has been providing children and adolescents in the Butler, PA area with quality dental services in a warm and welcoming environment. Dr. Kenney and his friendly staff go out of their way to make every patient feel relaxed during their appointment.

Biography

In keeping with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry initiative to establish a dental home for each child by age one, Dr. Kenney has set forth an educational program to assist each family in creating routines that will help maintain dental health for life. Dietary, oral hygiene, and supplements as required are intended to raise awareness for both the parent and child that good choices can have dramatic positive effects. When a child does require dental treatment every effort is made to make each procedure as comfortable as possible. Many of our patients elect to use nitrous oxide analgesia (laughing gas) to help relax during treatment. In an effort to reduce anxiety for the child and parent, Dr. Kenney allows a parent to accompany each child for treatment if they wish. Dr. Kenney is very comfortable with his approach and considers it a great aid for many of his patients. Occasionally very young children require extensive care which is beyond their ability to understand and cope. These children are treated using deep sedation provided by an anesthesiologist. All of the treatment is completed in one visit while the child is asleep. If you have any questions please e-mail, fax or call using the contact information given, or better yet schedule your child/children for an examination to start on a lifetime of dental health.

Will not work with special needs patients. Office is old dirty, no room for more than you, and your child so do not bring more than one child that needs attention because you will not be able to go back with them.
