Tooth Fairy Philosophy
Preventative dental care is essential to avoid long-term oral health complications. Although we do both, we always prefer to provide foundational dental care rather than treat disease. At each exam, we visually inspect your child’s teeth and take several digital X-rays to look for problems early. Our team provides professional cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants, flossing, and other dental services to ensure healthy teeth and gums for our patients. We also educate parents and children about establishing an oral healthcare routine at home. We take the time to explain to children what each piece of dental equipment does so they don’t feel afraid when it comes time for us to use it. Parents can help us out by talking about how important it is for your child to care for his or her teeth and mouth at home. Take a positive approach to visiting the dentist and your child is likely to do the same. Between us, we can help remove the fear of an unfamiliar situation and gain your child’s cooperation.
Grin With Envy
The making of a perfect smile is a partnership between dentist, parent, and child. When we join forces, instead of it being a tooth-grinding experience, we can apply a grinning formula to make your child, yourself, and our world a happier, smiling place.
As a patient, you can take advantage of numerous treatment options and products customized to fit your unique goals and needs, including:
