At Wells Family Dental Group, we strive to create a comfortable and positive dental experience for every patient that steps foot into our office, which is why we strive to make our office a family friendly environment for everyone.
Importance of the Dentist for Children
Parents should be taking children to the dentist regularly. It is not safe to assume that decay in a child’s baby teeth do no matter because dental decay in baby teeth can actually negatively affect permanent adult teeth. A good gauge of when you should begin to take your child to the dentist is typically around when the first tooth erupts in a child’s mouth or no later than the age of one.
At the dentist, the dentist will be able to provide a specific regimen for brushing, flossing and other procedures that parents should be teaching to their children at home. By regularly practicing at home oral care, regular dental visits and a well balanced diet, this will help to ensure healthy oral habits for your child.
During a child’s dental checkup, the dentist will check to make sure that the teeth and mouth are developing properly. They will evaluate your child to ensure that there are not any dental problems taking place and provide parents with advice on proper oral hygiene. A fluoride solution with a full explanation may be applied to the teeth after a dental exam to give your child extra protection to fight against cavities.

We offer full treatment plans for adults and children within our family friendly environment. We understand that the dental office can make parents anxious for their children, which is why our staff wants to ensure you that your child will be made as comfortable as possible every step of the way.
