What Is Family Dentistry?

Family dentistry consists of the dental services and treatments you and your loved ones need to protect your oral health. Every stage of life brings new opportunities to boost your health and the appeal of your smile. That's why we offer a diverse range of services to keep your dental structures in optimal condition. Whether your little one needs their biannual cleaning or you need gum disease treatments, you can depend on our friendly team.

Dental Services for Kids

We believe that helping kids create positive memories of visiting the dentist helps them overcome feeling apprehensive toward dental visits later in life. That's why we engage your little one in a fun and encouraging way. We offer cleanings and preventive treatments, fluoride, sealants, and space maintainers to help prevent complex issues.

We offer toys and sedation options to help your little one enjoy a relaxed appointment. Our team uses age-appropriate language to teach your kids proper brushing and flossing techniques, helping them build a robust daily oral hygiene routine.

Dental Care for Teens

Teens take on more responsibility and social engagements, which are often fueled by sugary snacks and drinks. Our team provides the services and treatments your teen needs to protect their oral health. We understand that many teens want to feel more like adults, so we address them in a way that encourages them and empowers them to make healthy food choices and take ownership of their daily oral hygiene routine to protect their smiles.
