We provide pediatric dentistry at several convenient locations in the Boise area! Our team is centered on creating an engaging and interactive environment where your child can feel at home during their dental care. For children, having good oral health at a young age can significantly improve the appearance and condition of their smiles later on!
Each member of our team is caring and gentle, and we are experienced in making children feel comfortable. We understand that it is important to build a positive, trusting relationship between your child and all of their dentists at a young age, and we are dedicated to ensuring that your child feels comfortable and safe at our office.
What to Expect
At our practice, we enjoy caring for patients of all ages! We are pleased to provide pediatric dentistry to help you keep your child’s smile in good health. We encourage you to bring your child to our office every six months for a regular dental exam and cleaning.
During this visit, our friendly doctors and team will gently clean your child’s teeth and check for signs of dental problems, such as tooth decay, cavities, and other issues like spacing or crossbites that may require orthodontics. We will also use fluoride treatment to help strengthen your child’s teeth and help prevent cavities.
If cavities or other dental issues are found, our dentists will recommend restorative dentistry. This can include dental sealants, fillings, or pediatric crowns. We understand that many children may be anxious about their visit and we do everything we can to make them feel comfortable. We may suggest using nitrous oxide, which is a safe way to help kids relax when they are in the chair. Dentists have used it for many years to make appointments easier for kids. Be sure to talk with our team about how we can help your child overcome dental anxiety.
Healthy Smiles Start at Home
In addition to bringing your child to our office for regular checkups, it is important that you help your child establish good oral hygiene habits at home. Teach your child to brush and floss their teeth every day and help them maintain a balanced, healthy diet.
