Crazy Fact:

More than one in four children in the United States have cavities by the time they are four years old, sometimes before age two. 

 

Tooth decay can begin as soon as teeth emerge in an infant's mouth and progress rapidly to cause pain and even harm the permanent teeth that are still growing under the gums.  Left untreated, it can destroy the teeth  of an infant or young child and can affect a child's general health.

What our patients are saying:

"We were impressed from beginning to end. The assistant and dentist were awesome with our 21 month old daughter. They even waited to call us in to the exam room until after another patient had stopped crying because they did not want to startle our daughter at the beginning of her visit - much appreciated."

 

~M.E

"The assistant was especially good with our 2.5 year old daughter.  She showed her all the tools and let her touch them before the cleaning began.  Our daughter was completely relaxed and allowed them to perform a complete cleaning.  Very impressed!"
