OUR QUALIFIED TEAM

We are pleased to have a proactive team of dental professionals leading this program.  We are certain that both you and your family will find that our team members are ideal for the job.  By utilizing the latest techniques in preventative care, we hope to minimize the need for major treatment in the future.  

Developing the right habits at an early age will save time, dollars and teeth over their lifetime.  What better gift can you give than a healthy, happy smile? 


AN ENGAGING DENTAL EXPERIENCE

The Children’s Interactive Preventative Dental Care Program was specially designed for our younger patients to foster a positive mindset toward dental care.  Through fun and educational visits, we teach your child to build lifelong habits around food choices, brushing and flossing. 


GETTING OFF TO THE RIGHT START:

The first introduction of your child to dentistry is a Well Baby Visit, between ages of 6-12 months, after the first tooth has erupted. This visit will be educational for the parent or care giver about caring for your baby’s teeth as well as a check of the baby’s mouth to assess the oral health. 
At about the age of 3 we will start your child’s First Happy Visit when they begin to discover the magic of dental care. 

They will be shown all the equipment to alleviate anxiety.  Fun starts from supervised play with Mr. Thirsty, our water and air shooter, to a fun ride in the dental chair to count all the teeth. 
When relaxed and comfortable, the educational process commences with an explanation about cavities, germs, nutrition; and sugar bugs. 

Parents are encouraged to be a part of the full self care demonstration with their child.


LOOKING GREAT AND FEELING HEALTHY!

We encourage your child to look after their teeth and gums as an important part of their daily homecare routines.  They will be encouraged through positive re-enforcement to develop a sense of pride in their mouths and their ability to make it look and feel great and be healthy.  Our goal is to make dental visits educational and fun.
