Let us ease your anxieties with
It is very common for children to feel nervous about going to the dentist. Bright lights, noisy tools, and a stranger with funny glasses poking your mouth can understandably cause some uneasiness. At our offices we strive to make you and your child as comfortable and relaxed as possible to insure a positive dental experience.
Our goal is to encourage lifelong healthy dental choices, and the best time to start is as a child. We recommend a child’s first dental visit be within six months of the arrival of their first tooth, and every six months after that.

What to expect
We believe that early education and preventative care is the best way to set your child up for a lifelong healthy mouth. The more regularly someone is seen by their dentist, the easier it is to catch potential problems or irregularities (cavities, gum disease, misaligned teeth or bite, etc.) and help prevent or get them fixed quickly to avoid bigger issues later in life.
Together, we can teach your child the proper ways to brush, floss, and care for their teeth. Proper care at home is essential too. If you have any questions about how to properly care for your child’s teeth, call our office today!

- Brush twice a day, once in the morning and once at night
- Use toothpaste with fluoride once they are capable of spitting and rinsing
- Start flossing daily as soon as two teeth in the mouth are touching
