Our focus is on prevention and early detection and treatment. Starting regular check-ups early in your child’s life gives us the opportunity to share our knowledge with you about caring for your child’s teeth to prevent dental problems before they develop. It also gives us the chance to detect any early dental concerns before they become bigger issues. Sealants and fluoride treatments are excellent preventive therapies offered. Regular check-ups allow children to become accustomed to visiting us for quick and easy appointments so that they learn that visits to the dentist can be easy and even fun!
