Family dentistry can be beneficial for a variety of reasons:
- Consistency of care: all members of your family will receive the quality, comprehensive dental care offered by Dr. Gardner.
- Convenience of care: for today’s busy families, being able to schedule dental care in one location can be time saving.
- Learning by example: young patients can accompany their parent or caregiver and be treated alongside them to both alleviate anxiety and provide the foundation for good oral hygiene in the future.
Children’s Dental Services
In addition to routine preventive care, Dr. Gardner offers dental services designed to protect and maintain a growing smile:
- Dental sealants
- Custom sports mouth guards
Dr. Gardner recommends that children begin visiting the dentist around the age of 3- once all primary teeth have erupted. Early visits will include a professional dental cleaning as well as screenings for tooth decay and gum disease. During your child’s visit, our staff will teach them the benefits of good oral hygiene as well as demonstrate proper brushing techniques for home care.
We recommend that children under the age of 10 also receive adult supervision with daily oral hygiene to ensure the best result and good dental health between visits. Lifelong dental health begins at an early age.
