For the best dental care for your child, look no further than Franklin Street Pediatric Dentistry, founded in Chapel Hill, NC in 2007 by Dr. Annelise Hardin. Our expertise in pediatric dentistry is based on our top-level experience, our compassion for our patients, and our desire to provide great dental care to children in a fun and calming atmosphere. Trusted in the community by parents and dentists alike, we are often referred patients by other practices for our specialized work in pediatric dentistry.

Our Chapel Hill Pediatric Dental Office

Dr. Hardin, Dr. Shauna, and our team enjoy helping our patients develop the best oral health they can, in an environment that is safe and supportive. Our facility offers plenty of natural light with a beautiful view of Chapel Hill from all treatment chairs. We are a truly paperless office equipped with nitrous oxide (laughing gas) capabilities and the newest dental technology to help make your child’s visit as safe and comfortable as possible.

For Your Convenience

Insurance helps cover many of the procedures we offer. Each insurance plan is different, and is negotiated between your employer and the insurance company.

Our policy regarding your dental insurance benefits goes beyond simply submitting claims for you. We feel it is just as important to understand how to utilize your insurance choices and benefits as it is to understand the dental treatment choices we recommend for your child. As a customer service oriented practice, we will utilize our in-house insurance benefit specialists to help you navigate the insurance process every step of the way. For procedures that are not covered by your insurance, we offer CareCredit financing.

We encourage you to contact our office to discuss the specific benefits of your plan by calling (919) 967-2773.

Advanced Care with Laser Therapy

We offer many restorative treatments using our Waterlase iPlus®, a dental laser that allows us to provide fillings and soft-tissue treatments without using anesthetic. Laser procedures are more comfortable, faster, and often result in less recovery time.

Dr. Hardin has been using the Waterlase iPlus since 2013 and has served as a mentor training other dentists how to perform treatment using the Waterlase. We are excited to be a part of your child’s journey into adulthood—a journey we hope is filled with happy, healthy smiles!
