There’s nothing more precious than a child’s smile, and we want to give your children a firm foundation for a lifetime of good oral health. Dr. Scholes and Dr. Nielsen are great with kids! Our entire team loves working with children and showing them that dental care is important and fun.
In our children’s dentistry program, we see kids as early as age two. The hygienist will clean your child’s teeth and provide instruction on proper brushing and flossing. Dr. Scholes or Dr. Nielsen will conduct a gentle exam to check for tooth decay and make sure that dental development is on track. We know that it’s sometimes hard to get kids to brush and floss their teeth at home, so we give parents tips to make daily oral care less challenging!
Proven Cavity Fighters
To keep your little one’s teeth strong and healthy, the dentist may recommend dental sealants or fluoride treatment. Sealants fill grooves in back teeth to smooth crevices and make brushing more effective. Applying fluoride strengthens teeth and deters decay. These affordable preventive measures safeguard children’s smile and may cut down on costly dental treatments in later years.
We Make Dental Visits Fun!
Our team approaches children’s dentistry from your child’s point of view. Many of our young patients look forward to regular dental appointments. By instilling good habits now, we hope to forge lifelong practices that promote happy, healthy smiles for life.
