Preventive Care

Maintaining your child's beautiful, healthy smile is often as simple as scheduling six-month preventive checkups.  We encourage you to begin dental care for your child by the age of one or within six months after the first tooth arrives.  The sooner you allow us to monitor your child's oral health, the greater our ability to guide successful development, while protecting teeth from problems like tooth decay or over-crowding.  Contact us today to schedule a visit, so we may join you in helping your child establish a lifetime of excellent dental habits.

Restorative Care

In the event your child needs to have dental treatment, our team works diligently to create a fun-loving, comfortable environment for your child.  If your child is very nervous, there are many behavior management techniques we use in our office to make their visit very easy.

There may be times when children have unique dental and medical concerns that may determine that the best approach for dental treatment to be done would be in a hospital setting.  Our office would be able to address those needs.

New Patients Welcome!

We are so excited to meet you and your child.  On your child’s visit, Dr. Dee and her team will review the health history, discuss dental concerns, and take any necessary radiographs to finalize a treatment plan approach.  Usually after the examination your child will have a dental cleaning and fluoride treatment.  Discussions will be problem-focused with recommendations for your child’s oral health care and home care instructions.  We want to share with you methods and techniques to keep your child’s smile happy and healthy.
