When do you start seeing kids?

Unless you see something suspicious in your child’s mouth, we recommend seeing children at 3 years of age. At 3 years of age children have their full complement of baby teeth.

This helps build your child’s confidence in us and in dentistry in general which hopefully will stay with them for their entire life.

We have numerous financing options to help make your decision easy.
