The appeal of the trains that run throughout the office are a fun addition to the warm and friendly environment that our team provides to our smallest of patients. Families are able to schedule all of their appointments at the same time to minimize time off from school for routine dental care.

Baby Teeth Set The Stage For Good Oral Health

Your child’s first set of teeth are just as important as their adult teeth. The primary teeth usually erupt between 6 months and their first birthday. These “baby teeth” will help your child learn to speak as well as eat. Keeping them healthy and in-tact is also important because they will serve as “place holders” as the permanent teeth begin to grow in.

At Dental Express, we believe that it is important to teach your child good oral hygiene habits at an early age. Doing this can lead to a lifetime of healthy smiles.

At this appointment, we’ll check for cavities or any other problems. Our team will show you how to clean your child’s teeth properly and how to watch for other troublesome habits such as thumb sucking. We also encourage parents to bring their toddlers with them to their own preventative appointments. This is a great way to get them acquainted with the office and the team.

Children look forward to their Dental Express visits to see the trains, get their teeth polished and leave with a brand new Dental Express t-shirt.

We also provide care for Children’s Dental Emergencies.
