Pediatric Dentistry: A Great Experience for our Youngest Patients

Children should regularly see a dentist. And having a great experience is very important on the road to lifelong good oral health. Their first visit with a dentist may shape how they feel about going to the dentist. This initial appointment is less focused on treatment, and more about making kids feel safe and welcomed at the office. By creating a positive atmosphere at the first visit, the dentist’s office can feel more inviting to kids, and make them more receptive to dental care. Early appointments matter – the health of a child’s primary teeth can affect the arrival of their secondary teeth. We generally recommend that your child sees us regularly and gets regular cleanings as preventative care. We also offer fluoride treatments, sealants and fillings for our youngest patients. Of course, we are here for your child’s urgent care needs in case a tooth gets knocked loose during soccer practice or a brand-new permanent tooth gets chipped while playing. 

What does Family Dentistry actually mean?

Image of a family with three generations for the family dentistry page.Like any good family dentist, we specialize in a range of dental services, from the usual dental cleanings and fillings to more complex procedures such as root canals, wisdom teeth extractions and implants. The goal is to be with you through all stages of life.

So we are here for you for regular cleanings and fluoride treatments for the kids, cavity diagnoses and fillings for the whole family, treatments for gum disease as well as emergency care as needed for the whole family. For seniors, we offer restorative care, dentures, implants, bridges and all around oral care.

Not only do family dentists understand how teeth change with age, but we also recognize that some folks may fear going to the dentist. We have made it our mission to not let one bad experience ruin your lifelong health. Dr. Wheatley and his team have a gentle approach so that children and grownups alike always have a positive association with regular dental checkups and build good oral hygiene habits for life.

Dental Care for Seniors

As you age, proper oral care becomes more important than ever before. Please utilize our services and keep up regular dental hygiene.Visit your dentist on a regular schedule for cleanings and an oral exam. Taking care of aging teeth and gums is just as important as digestive or heart health. Research has shown that there is a connection between gum disease and heart disease. Maintaining good oral hygiene is a powerful weapon against heart attacks, strokes and other heart conditions.
