We don’t leave your child’s oral health to chance. We start with a complete oral examination of your child’s mouth, teeth and gums. Using dental X-rays, we can detect any issues or conditions that might not be visible to the naked eye. We may not X-ray your child's teeth each time, but it allows to us to identify any issues and some future issues they may experience.
Your child may come to us for preventive treatments like cleanings or restorative treatments. We also offer care for fillings and may recommend spacers. We know that undergoing even the simplest treatment can be new for your child and we’re here to make it as easy and painless as possible.
