Cleanings and Exams

Preventive care is an important part of helping your child’s smile stay as healthy as possible. We recommend a cleaning and exam at least every 6 months. Since baby teeth decay very quickly, early diagnosis of cavities is essential.

Fluoride Treatments

After your child’s cleaning, we will place fluoride onto his or her teeth. This makes the enamel more resistant to decay and encourages healthy development.

Dental Sealants

Sealants are thin, clear protective coatings that assist in preventing cavities from starting in the deep grooves and pits of the back teeth.

Oral Hygiene Instruction and Nutritional Counseling

Sport Guards

Is your child an athlete? Our custom sport guards can save his or her teeth, as well as prevent concussions.

Orthodontic Evaluations

By age 7, all children should have an orthodontic evaluation to assess the eruption patterns and bite relationship of their teeth.
