Dothan, AL dentist helps kids smile with confidence
You want the best for your child . . . including a dentist who provides the least painful as well as a healthiest possible form of dentistry. We are parents, too, so we understand. The team at No Needles Children’s Dentistry in Dothan, AL enthusiastically partners with parents to give kids the emotional advantages of a needleless experience.
The dentist Dothan, AL kids want to visit
Getting a child into the dental chair doesn’t have to be stressful. Whether anticipating your child’s first dental appointment, or working to overcome less than pleasant experiences in the past, we can help.
A little empathy goes a long way. From the child’s perspective, the average dental office is a foreign landscape full of unfamiliar sights, sounds, and smells – adult-sized chairs, bright lights, towering grown-ups wearing masks. We aren’t average. While maintaining the highest clinical standards, we created a warm environment where kids feel at ease. A “kid-friendly” mindset is evident in our treatment approaches.
Minimally invasive kid’s dentistry
Our goal is to help your child avoid dental problems, with nutritional guidance, hands-on hygiene demonstration, and effective preventive techniques.
Here are just a few examples of our gentle approach:
- Diagnodent – This advanced illumination (non-ionizing radiation) device allows the doctor to identify dental caries often before they can be seen through visual examination. We find cavities when they are tiny; before a toothache has developed or extensive repair is needed.
- Oral bacteria testing – A painless screening that aids in early detection of cavities and gum disease, and allow treatment to be tailored to your child’s oral terrain.
- Fillings without needles – Injections are a big cause of dental anxiety for patients of all ages. With micro air abrasion, most cavities can be prepped and completed without the need for local anesthetic. That also means no “froze face” or risk of biting numbed soft tissues. Also, you can assure your child that we “don’t use needles.”
- Developmental monitoring – Extra attention to how teeth are emerging, as well as jaw shape and size. With early intervention, crooked teeth, speech difficulties, and sleep disordered breathing can usually be avoided.
