Finding the right dentist to treat your kids can be hard! Luckily all of our dentists are parents, and love treating children of all ages. Dr. Jena Ward and Dr. Elliot Simpson, have toddlers at home, and know first hand how hard it can be to get them to brush their teeth! We are here to help.
Children are recommended to start seeing the dentist for check-ups from the age of three. Even if it is just for a ride on the chair or to watch the TV on the ceiling, it’s important to get your little one familiar with the surroundings. However, if there are any questions or concerns for toddlers younger than three years of age, we are more than happy to see them. The sooner children start having check-ups, the sooner they can build a trusting relationship with their dentist and avoid developing dental anxieties later in life.

The Importance of Primary (baby) Teeth
Although primary teeth are temporary, they still require good care. Children’s teeth not only help them to chew properly, but to pronounce words as well. They help to keep the space for the permanent teeth to come through. They must be kept clean and healthy to prevent damage to the permanent teeth underneath. Milk teeth can develop decay and can cause problems to the adult teeth.
