It’s the day of your child’s dental appointment. You can tell that something is wrong.

First, your kid tells you they are sick, but you can tell that’s not exactly true. Next, your child says they have a headache, which is possible.

More than anything, you can see something in your child’s eyes. They are anxious, and you think you know why.

Dental anxiety is an issue for millions of people. People have many reasons for their fear, and the severity of that anxiety can vary greatly.

We don’t want that to become an issue for you or your child. As a pediatric dental practice, our focus is on delivering the highest quality service for your loved ones. By making our office welcoming to children – and their parents – we can be the place where you and your loved ones feel good about visiting for your oral health needs.

Preventing Problems is the Best Approach

The best way to deal with dental anxiety is to take steps to prevent it from developing. This is why we want to build a relationship with you and your children from your initial appointments with our team.

In reality, we want to start that relationship during your pregnancy. You already know that hormones change a lot during this time. Some of those changes can be detrimental to your oral health. We are ready to make your visits as comfortable as they can be during this time. We also are happy to answer any questions you may have about your home care routine.

We also know that some patients need special attention to feel at ease. If you have a child with special needs, please let us know. We are happy to work with you to make their dental care easier for everyone involved. Our goal is to keep your family smiling and coming back for routine visits. This prevents cavities as well as future anxiety about appointments.

Putting Patients First

We want to be the go-to dental practice for your family. Our team brings invaluable experience and extensive knowledge to every appointment. Plus, we are focusing on putting the care into dental care.

We welcome children, patients with special needs, and parents to come to our practice. We have invested in technology that makes dental visits as patient-friendly as they can be. Products like the Solea laser allow us to painlessly perform procedures. Plus, digital X-rays reduce radiation, making them safer, too.

For patients who need a little more assistance getting comfortable, we offer multiple levels of dental sedation. This provides peace of mind and prevents pain from being a problem.
