Absolutely! We love seeing children at our Tacoma, Tumwater, and Lacey dental offices!
We see tons of kids, all the way from infancy through young adulthood. Best of all, your kids will enjoy the same comforting amenities as you will – and they absolutely love it. When was the last time you heard a child who was eager to go to the dentist's office? Believe it or not, we hear it every single day!
Early dental care is key in building good habits that will last for a lifetime. It's a good idea to start kids off in a practice like ours, where the setting is soothing and relaxing and the people are kind, gentle, and compassionate. This is a great way to help them understand that dental care isn't scary or painful (despite what they might have seen on TV). It also helps break the cycle of dental fear.
Our dental health is intricately connected with our overall health in ways that science is only now beginning to uncover and understand. Part of giving your child the best opportunity for healthy development includes regular dental check-ups and cleanings. This helps prevent problems like decay and gum disease, which have been linked to conditions like heart disease and diabetes.
