Children's Dental Care

If you are bringing your child to see us, we will take time and pace our approach to their interest level and guide them through the routine of a dental check-up and cleaning. We may refer you to a pediatric dentist if your child has extensive needs. We always want them to have a positive experience and help them develop healthy habits for a lifetime!

What to Expect

During your first visit to our Auburn family dental practice, we will get to know you and talk with you about your dental and medical history. After a complete dental examination, oral cancer screening and periodontal (gum health) assessment, your dentist will provide you with recommendations to maintain proper oral health.

We may recommend dental x-rays so that your dentist can evaluate areas that are not visible to the eye between the teeth and below the gum line. We use digital x-rays in our office; they require less radiation than film and give us the tools to display images of your teeth on a computer monitor and share our findings with you.


Did You Know?

Research has proven that the health of the mouth can affect the entire body. Diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and even pregnancy are impacted by dental bacteria, infection and disease.

For Your Convenience

We offer text and email appointment reminders to help you fit dentistry into your busy schedule. And, after each visit with us, we will send you a short survey for your feedback. As your family dentist, we appreciate your trust in us and want to continue to earn your loyalty!
