We understand visiting the dentist can be a scary process for children, so we offer comfortable amenities and services to help them feel at ease during their visit. In end, young patients may begin to attribute visiting the dentist with something positive.
Visiting the dentist from a young age can help children develop healthy oral health habits that they can follow through adulthood. Learning the proper ways to care for your smile can help prevent future dental issues down the road.
During each visit, our team explores dental education resources to help children better understand their dental health and how to maintain it.
During your child’s visit, we will examine the teeth and gums for any signs of dysfunction. Early intervention is a great way to address dental dysfunction before it develops into a more severe dental issue.
For instance, if we notice any issues in the development or alignment of the teeth, we may recommend a type of orthodontic treatment to help improve the condition of your child’s smile. We make personalized recommendations based on the results of the examination.

Family Dentistry FAQs
What are some tips for choosing a family dentist?
When choosing a family dentist, there are a few things you should be on the lookout for to be sure that you are making the right choice. It is always important to research your dentists options and see what qualifications and training they have.
Also look at the type of dentistry they practice. Dental techniques and approaches vary from dentist to dentist. Many parents choose to bring their children into the dentist and see how they feel and respond. Discussing options and listening to your child’s thoughts will help you make the decision.
How long should I brush my child’s teeth for them?
It is recommended that parents brush their children’s teeth until the child is capable and committed to his or her own oral routine and care. Around the age of 6, or once your child can tie their own shoes they should have the coordination to brush their own teeth.
Many parents brush their teeth with their children past this point to be sure that they are taking ample care of their teeth.
How long do fillings last before they need to be replaced?
On average fillings last anywhere from 10-12 years before they need replacing. This varies based on the material and placement of the filling. Tooth colored fillings may last a shorter time than metal fillings.
