Yes, we see patients of all ages, from 2 to 102. We recommend that the first visit be done when a parent is getting a tooth cleaning and checkup, then we can let the child watch and take a ride in the chair, then get a “prize” from our pirate’s treasure chest and a new toothbrush. We call this a “happy visit” and just try to get the child used to being at our office, without feeling scared.
We provide child cleanings, sealants, fluoride treatments, and routine fillings. We monitor the growth patterns of our child patients and refer them to an orthodontist for a consultation if it appears that there are possible future problems. We are happy to say that we now see the children and grandchildren of some of our long-term patients!
