Information to Help You and Your Child Develop a Positive Relationship with Their Oral Health
We believe the easiest path to optimal oral health for children is to empower families to make positive oral health choices. Part of this will come from you attending your child’s biannual dental cleanings and exams, where we’ll answer your questions and give you information on how to help maintain your child’s health as they (and their teeth) grow.
In addition, we’ve also answered some common questions about taking care of your child’s oral health below.

How Can We Help Your Child Remain Healthy?
Cleanings & Exams
Maintaining regular exams and cleanings is crucial to keeping your child’s mouth healthy. At those exams we will review information with you so that you can know all there is to know about children’s oral health. Routine exams also help us catch small issues before they become big issues.
Special Needs Dentistry
Our dentists and staff believe each and every one of our patients are one of a kind. We treat every child with kindness, dignity, respect, and compassion! We’re proud of the fun and friendly environment we’ve curated for all children, including those with special needs.
Decay and damage can happen to children and adults alike — even baby teeth can get cavities that need to be filled or restored! Our dentists are here to help your child restore their smile in whatever way they need.
Patients who are comfortable at the dentist will always have a more positive experience. That’s why we offer sedation options to help lessen your child’s dental anxiety or fear.
