Fear of the dentist is common, and usually begins in childhood with a negative experience. We take extra care of our young patients and try to make their visits to our office a fun and learning experience! We show ‘our’ kids how to brush and floss properly while we clean their teeth. We look for new teeth coming in, or about to come out, and talk about the exciting changes in their mouths. We love to get to know each of our kids as we watch them grow. And, of course, they get to choose a toy! We understand the importance of positive dental experiences when our patients are young, and we will do all we can to teach them proper care and maintenance so they can take care of their own teeth, and know that the dentist is their helpful, caring friend.
