At Growing Smiles Children's Dentistry, our goal is to provide the highest quality and most compassionate dental care to our patients from infancy through adolescence, including those with special health care needs. We appreciate and respect the trust parents place in us by allowing us to care for their children as if they are our own. We aim to treat our patients’ needs while providing a learning environment that promotes prevention and fosters optimal oral health. Growing alongside our patients, we adapt to their individual needs thoughtfully and safely, ultimately making dentistry a positive experience for all of our families.
Growing Smiles' practice philosophy is treating every child as if they were our own and developing a lasting relationship not only with the patient, but also the parent. Whether we’re discussing our “water whistler” and “Mr. Thirsty” with a two-year-old or reviewing the proper techniques for brushing and flossing with an eighteen-year old before they head off to college, we focus our chairside manner on your child and getting to know them better at each visit. Our goal is to deliver quality care to each patient while fostering habits beginning at age one and continuing into early adulthood. With our focus centered on prevention at each visit, we teach patients our favorite secret tooth rules to keep a healthy and lasting smile—what foods, drinks, and habits are integral to maintaining optimum oral health and overall health. With sealants, fluoride, and special toothpaste options, our first goal is to always prevent dental disease before it occurs.
However, if more extensive work is required, such as fillings, crowns, root canals, and extractions, we strive to provide the highest quality dental care possible. To help maintain healthy, esthetic smiles, we try to utilize tooth-colored restorations whenever possible. We are also able to offer a variety of behavior management techniques to put your child at ease and have an enjoyable dental experience. Additionally, we screen patients of all ages for orthodontic care at each six month examination.
Not only do we focus our attention on your child, but we also work hard to address parental concerns by explaining each child's unique dental situation—why and what type of treatment has been planned, and what to expect moving forward. In all aspects, we hope that every patient and parent has a positive experience in our office. We believe that when the child, parent, and dentist actively participate in prevention, a child can stay cavity-free. We appreciate the trust you have placed in us and look forward to growing this relationship. We will do what is best for your child while planting the seeds for their healthy smile!
