Our doctors and staff love working with children. Children as young as three years old can receive services here. Our approach is to use a very gentle, nurturing touch when introducing your child to dentistry and good oral health care. Our goal is to create an environment where they aren’t afraid to come to the dentist. We will help your child to be comfortable and relaxed at our office and to understand that we are here to help them.
Dr. Strickland loves helping children get used to seeing the dentist. During their visit, Dr. Strickland will introduce your child to dentistry in a soft, caring way. He will explain what is going to happen, and why good dental care is important. He has a gentle touch and always works toward giving children a pleasant experience.
We encourage you to start bringing your children in to see us when they are around three years old. We often start with simple visits where they can get to know us and have a fun, nonthreatening experience. If your child is older, their first visit may involve a simple exam or cleaning that is very noninvasive. It is intended to get them feeling comfortable with the staff and office so if or when they need a filling or other treatment, it will go smoothly.
