Meet Dr. Caroline Jarrell

Dr. Caroline Jarrell is excited to open her own practice, Jarrell Pediatric Dentistry, in her hometown of Columbus, Georgia.  She attended Furman University and then studied at the Medical University of South Carolina, College of Dental Medicine, where she graduated with a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 2012.  After graduating from dental school, Dr. Jarrell completed her residency, which was comprised of an additional two years of pediatric dental training at Medical College of Georgia (re-named Dental College of Georgia) in Augusta, Georgia. Her time with MCG was focused on treating the comprehensive needs of pediatric dental patients, including those with special needs.  She completed multiple rotations at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (Scottish Rite and Egleston hospitals) with the emphasis placed on treating medically compromised children.  Upon completing her residency, Dr. Jarrell worked as an associate in a pediatric dental practice in Columbus, Georgia for four years and is thrilled to open her own practice.

 

Dr. Jarrell is board certified and a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.  She is a member of the American Dental Association, Georgia Dental Association, the Western District Dental Society, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists and the Southeastern Society of Pediatric Dentists.   Over the past eight years, she has been on seven dental mission trips to Ecuador, Haiti and Honduras and is honored to be able to serve the people of those communities.

 

Jarrell Pediatric Dentistry offers comprehensive pediatric dental care in the office including laughing gas sedation as well as hospital dentistry, when needed, at Piedmont Columbus Regional where she maintains privileges.

 

When away from the office, Caroline and her husband, Nathan, enjoy traveling, hiking and spending time with their two dogs, Bella and Dash.

We pride ourselves in practicing ethically and honestly, always taking the time to explain our findings.  We always consider all appropriate treatment options and try to present the most conservative plans, when possible.  It is important for us to be helpful to our patients and answer any questions you might have regarding your child’s dental care.

We are available

Monday, Tuesday & Thursday  8am - 5pm

and Friday from 8 am- 2pm.

 

For after hours emergencies,

 please call 706-530-0700 and listen to our message.

 

 

 

 

 

Our office attempts to schedule appointments at your convenience and when time is available.  Preschool children should be seen in the morning because they are fresher and we can work more slowly with the child for their comfort.  School aged children for routine visits can be scheduled throughout the day.

 

Sedation appointments  are scheduled in only in the morning.

Our afternoon appointments are for routine visits and older children requiring minor dental treatment.

 

We require a 48 hour cancellation notice.

 

 

 

 

Payment for professional services is due at the time dental treatment is provided.  This includes deductibles

 and co-insurance. We accept cash, personal checks, and most major credit cards. We also take Care Credit.

 

For patients that require dental treatment, we compile a treatment plan. Our treatment coordinator will review the recommended treatment and the estimation of your dental insurance reimbursement.

 

Every effort will be made to provide a treatment plan which fits your timetable and budget, and gives your child

the best possible care.

First Visit

Dr. Caroline and her team love working with children and are dedicated to great dental experiences.

 

We, along with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry,

recommend you bring your child in by his or her first birthday.

 

During your first visit, you will be introduced to our Pediatric Dental Team, given an office tour and and given an opportunity to discuss your child's unique smile and ways to keep it beautiful for years to come.

 

Depending on the age of your child, he or she will either be given a knee-to-knee examination (where your baby’s head will rest on our doctor’s knee while their body is on your lap) or a regular exam in the doctor’s chair.

 

We request that you complete our First Visit Forms prior to arriving for your appointment. This helps our office keep your and everyone else’ scheduled visit on time.

 

Oral hygiene instructions will also be given with suggestions to help your child care for their own teeth. In most cases, we will also clean their teeth on this visit, and provide an evaluation that will outline any existing dental problems and proposed treatment.

 

First Visit forms will be emailed to you when you make your child's appointment.

 

Schedule your first appointment today!

Your child is our highest priority.
Pediatric Dentistry

What is a Pediatric Dentist?

 

A Pediatric Dentist, like Dr. Caroline, is a specialist dedicated to the oral health of children and the monitoring of their facial growth and development. Our office is designed for treating children from infancy through adolescence, as well as the medically and the physically compromised. In our opinion, taking your child to see a pediatric dental specialist is as important as taking them to see a pediatrician.

 

What is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist?

 

When a Pediatric Dentist is Board Certified it means that the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry or ABPD certifies that the dental care being provided is based on standards of excellence that lead to high quality oral health care for infants, children, adolescents and patients with special health care needs. Certification by the ABPD provides assurance to the public that a Pediatric Dentist like Dr. Caroline have successfully completed accredited training and a voluntary examination process designed to continually validate the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to the delivery of quality patient care.

Establishing Your Child’s Dental Home

 

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry encourages parents and other care providers to help every child establish a dental home by 12 months of age. Establishing a dental home provides some key components to dental care for your child including...

 

  • Comprehensive oral health care including acute care and preventive services.

  • Individualized preventive dental health program based upon a caries-risk assessment.

  • Anticipatory guidance regarding growth and development.

  • Plan for acute dental trauma (emergencies).

  • Dietary counseling.

  • Referrals to dental specialists when care cannot directly be provided within the dental home.

  • Referral at an age determined by patient, parent, and pediatric dentist.
