About The Kids' Place

At The Kids' Place Pediatric Dentistry and Early Orthodontics, Dr. Michael Wilkerson and his team love helping young patients develop optimal dental health and beautiful smiles that last a lifetime. Our skilled team offers more than 30 years of experience treating infants, children, and teens in Boerne, TX and beyond!

Dr. Wilkerson supports the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) and the American Dental Association (ADA)'s concept of a "Dental Home" — the ongoing relationship between the dentist and the patient that is inclusive of all aspects of oral health care and delivered in a comprehensive, continuously accessible, coordinated, and family-centered way.

Our Mission

At The Kids Place, our mission is to help children grow up with beautiful, cavity-free smiles that instill confidence, promote success, and enrich life!

Our Treatment Philosophy

At our Boerne, TX dentist office, we focus on finding the root cause when dental issues arise, not just treating the symptoms. In addition to prevention, we'll gently treat existing cavities, restoring diseased teeth back to health. At your regular preventive visits, our dental team will monitor dental eruption and guide erupting teeth to their normal position, by interceptive orthodontic techniques. We'll also look for concerns that affect oral and facial development in a negative way, and redirect the growth back toward normal by addressing and treating the cause.

In addition to pediatric dental care, we offer early orthodontic treatment, assessment of facial growth and facial aesthetics, and evaluation of tongue and oral muscle function, with a focus on airway and proper nasal breathing. Correct nasal breathing along with correct oral muscle function, leads to healthier children, straighter teeth, beautiful smiles, and attractive faces.

Dental Sedation for Maximum Comfort

At the Kids Place, we offer multiple levels of sedation for our younger patients including laughing gas, oral conscious sedation, and even general anesthesia when necessary.

Dr. Wilkerson and his team pride ourselves on providing positive experiences for our kids. We help parents choose effective procedures and management strategies for their child for all dental treatment. We have created a warm, fun environment in which your child will receive the care they need. We want our kids to leave healthy, happy, and smiling!

Every one of my team members loves working with kids! In fact, they wouldn’t work here if they didn’t! They are dedicated to providing a great patient experience. They love talking with the kids and explaining things in "kid-friendly terms" so it does not cause anxiety or fear. Our goal is to develop a long-lasting relationship with the children and their parents to educate and create life-long, positive dental habits.

Scheduling for Your Convenience

At The Kids' Place, we strive to schedule appointment times that are best for appropriate ages with consideration of the type of treatment provided. We are currently the only pediatric dental practice in the area open on Fridays. In the case of an emergency, we're happy to see any of our existing patients ASAP, at any time — plus, we block off time in our schedule to handle new patient emergencies.

We’re here for you, whenever you need us, and look forward to getting to know you and your family. To schedule an appointment or get any questions answered, call our office today!
