Children's Dentistry at Middle Creek Dental
Your Child Shines With Every Smile. Let's Keep it That Way.
A lifetime of healthy teeth starts with good brushing habits, good nutritional choices, and trust in the dentist. By teaming up with you, we can ensure that your child has a vibrant smile all the way into adulthood.
Depending on the age and needs of your child, we will complete a professional dental cleaning, conduct re-mineralization therapy and take any necessary x-rays. Dr. Christensen will take time to discuss any concerns you may have, and prepare you for what you can expect during your child's oral development. If decay is found, the information collected will allow Dr. Christensen to prepare a treatment plan and recommend the best options for your child's dental care.
At Middle Creek Dental, pediatric dentistry is more than bright, healthy smiles; it's also about making the trip to the dentist a calm, pleasant experience so there's no fear of "next time." We take pride in seeing our patients grow into their adult teeth, so we're committed to earning the trust of everyone who visits our clinic — both children and parents. That's why we take extra time to build rapport and earn confidence; it makes the experience easier for everyone. As a part of our care, we use pleasant, simple explanations to answer your child's questions and calm any anxieties. Of course, we're also happy to answer any concerns or questions you might have as a parent.
Please help us make the first visit enjoyable and positive! We encourage parents and caregivers to use positive stories about visiting the dentist, songs, and descriptive words to describe your child's upcoming visit.
Try to avoid using words around your child that might cause unnecessary fear. Words like "needle", "shot", "drill", or "hurt" may cause preventable anxiety and make the first dental visit more difficult for your child. At Middle Creek Dental, we will work with you to make your child's first dental visit an adventure that sets a positive foundation for the rest of their life.
Superior Service Starts Before Your Child's Appointment
We know that your child's perception of his or her visit starts well before he or she climbs into the dentist's chair; that is why we proudly offer a warm, kid-friendly waiting area. We keep a wide variety of storybooks and toys for all ages, so they can have fun while they wait. Also, when your little one goes in for his or her appointment, you'll have access to wi-fi, so you can make the most of your time.
