Your Kids Will Love Us!
We understand how difficult it can be to get a child excited to
come to a dental appointment. But you will be relieved to know
that children of all ages enjoy their visits to our office!
Together with the use of the latest technologies that are often
pain-free, quick, and easy and our friendly and caring team,
your children will be happy to come in for dental exams. Parents
will be pleased that at every visit, we encourage a child to
maintain good dental care and nutritional eating habits for
healthy teeth and gums. We look forward to seeing how much
they’ve grown and changed year after year and helping them have
good health and a beautiful smile.
No More Dental Fears
No kidding! Our office and team members make children of all
ages feel relaxed. It is our goal to ensure that children will
grow up and no longer have fears of going to the dentist
throughout their lifetimes. And as many of our parents have told
us, we are accomplishing just that!
Dentist is as Important for Your Child’s Health
We continually educate and encourage good dental habits in all
our young patients. We make learning and treatments fun and easy
for them. But it is important to know that children’s teeth are
more prone to cavities.
Even with proper instruction, children do not always brush their
teeth well, and we ask parents to oversee their child’s daily
dental hygiene. As children eat more often throughout the day,
their teeth have prolonged exposure to acid and this increases
the chances they will develop more cavities.
This is why is it important that a tooth is cleaned properly. We
can help by applying a fluoride varnish to their permanent teeth
and along with encouragement in selecting healthy food choices
and thorough brushing, chances of cavities developing are
Make it Easier to Prevent Tooth Decay
Often times, even meticulous brushing doesn’t clean all the
contours and grooves of a tooth. When acids, bacteria, and
plaque start to accumulate, decay will occur. When a tooth has
decay, it is permanently damaged and needs to be repaired with a
filling or crown.
We can now apply dental sealants to children’s teeth to help
them maintain their natural tooth structure. Here is the quick
and easy procedure:
First, the teeth are cleaned and sterilized. Then a clear, thin
coating of the sealant is applied. With a curing light, the
sealant is bonded to the teeth. There is no pain, and this
procedure takes only a few minutes. It helps to protect your
child’s teeth during their formative years so they can have
their natural teeth for a lifetime.
