    At Dentistry for Children in Highland, IN, we are committed to utilizing the best that technology has to offer to deliver outstanding care to our young patients. We are happy to introduce the Solea dental laser to our practice. This revolutionary laser takes the drill, the needle, the noise, the numbness, and the pain out of your childs dental visits.

    Kurt M. Halum, DMD, P.C. - Pediatric dentist in Highland, IN

    Solea is a revolutionary laser that replaces the drill in the majority of dental procedures. The laser vaporizes the target tissue using light, without any contact, whether it is tooth, bone, or gum. Solea utilizes a wavelength of light delivered in thousands of pulses per second, which provides an analgesic effect that dulls sensation, meaning no local anesthetics are usually required.

    Kurt M. Halum, DMD, P.C. - Pediatric dentist in Highland, IN

    The Solea experience is free of the needle and the sound of the drill. Even the most fearful and anxious of our young patients leave feeling relaxed and comfortable. Procedures are quick and easy and are usually completed in one visit. Your child will have no reason to be fearful of future dental care.

    I love this office! Every single visit has been nothing short of excellent. They are all so friendly and my son's visits are usually very quick and pleasant. I plan to take my younger son here as well when he's old enough.

    Everyone here is very nice and welcoming. My son was nervous at one point and they comforted him so wonderfully so the dentist could continue his checkup. My son left very happy and excited to return at a future date. I highly recommend.

    You can never go wrong choosing dentistry for children! My kids have been coming here for over 6 years and i have had amazing experiences. Today they had an appointment and my 3 year old was a little nervous until Tricia talked to him and made him comfortable and he was relaxing in the chair while he got his teeth cleaned! She is an amazing hygienist who loves what she does! Her assistant Zee was also amazing! We had great conversation and she made me feel extremely welcomed! Dr Halum has always been so caring and thorough with everything and will answer any questions you have! Being a dental assistant myself i find myself learning something new every 6 months we come! Awesome staff! Highly recommend! BOOK YOUR APPT YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED!!

    My son has been going here for years I think even before he started to get teeth. My son had a tight tongue tie and Dr. Halum was never pushy and always asked questions about his eating and now of course what letters he can pronounce to make sure it wasn't interfering with his daily life. I'm glad that he presented options and left it up to me and my son's progress. My son is now 5 and talking well. Staff is friendly and the environment is always clean as well. Appreciate the experience.

    This is the 4th dentist I've seen with my children. They are AMAZING. My kids were super comfortable once we walked in. The staff was wonder (some reviews stated otherwise but I can fully assure that's was not the case) the dentist is incredibly practical in terms of being a children's dentist dealing with baby teeth. Toni is the only particular name I remember. We will continue to use this establishment

    I searched for a pediatric dentist that accepted my insurance that had good reviews....it was a long search. After Facebook recommendations I found Dr. Halum and everyone was right. Very polite, patient, and gentle. Dr. Halum and his amazing staff know what to say and how to say it to keep kids comfortable.

    My son is normally scared of anybody with scrubs on. So I was pleasantly surprised when he did well at his appointment. I appreciate Dr. Halum.

    All staff made my kid feel very comfortable. I also loved how the hygienist explained everything step by step on what was going to happen with the dental tools. Dr. Halum is the nicest guy.
