From First Tooth to Graduation

At Pediatric Dentistry of Shelbyville, we know that a lifetime of healthy smiles begins with a baby’s first tooth. Our kid-friendly practice is built on a love for children and a desire for them to be comfortable with dentistry. It is our goal for our patients to receive the highest quality of care in a positive environment and to provide dental education for the entire family! Creating beautiful smiles.


Dr. Kirby Chambers Hoetker

Why Pediatric Dentistry?

We offer a variety of kid-centered dentistry services, including preventative care, like regular cleanings, and restorative dental care, such as fillings. All of our services are provided in a calm, caring environment in order to provide you and your child with a positive experience. We also offer Sedation dentistry options, to reduce the stress that an anxious child may feel.
The AAPD recommends that your child should be seen no later than 6 months after their first tooth erupts from the gum. Little teeth need as much attention as “big teeth” to prevent decay and encourage life-long healthy habits.
Does Pediatric Dentistry cost more?
Not necessarily! Every parent wants the best for their children, and we do too! Our practice is happy to work with you to create a dental hygiene plan for your child that will suit you and your family’s financial needs.
Do you offer tongue & lip tie services?

Yes! At Pediatric Dentistry of Shelbyville, we’re proud to offer comprehensive treatment for a range of tongue and lip tie issues. While it’s not unusual for children to experience ties, early treatment can prevent potential difficulties with oral motor skills.

“Both of my daughters have seen Dr. Kirby since they were toddlers. The youngest will soon turn 18 and they are both very unhappy about the prospect of seeing ANY other doctor. Kirby and her staff have been the absolute BEST!”
“I bring three children at once and they are always prepared for them, I get updates along the way, and my kids come out smiling. Dr.Kirby follows up with me when she is finished with all the kids and takes time to answer any questions I have. Great place!”
“Being the parent of a child with special needs, finding a good dentist, let alone an amazing one, was like finding a needle in a haystack! The search is over for us! The staff and doctor in this practice is an absolute dream! You could not ask for a more patient team to care for your child!…”
“I had an early morning dental emergency and the staff was immediately available via emergency number and quickly assessed the situation and responded promptly with a solution. In addition, the office staff has always been welcoming and gentle with my children and provided excellent dental care. I absolutely recommend this office. Dr. Kirby is awesome!”
