Preventative Care Appointment
Pediatric Dental Cleaning and Exam
Practicing good oral hygiene can lead to more than just healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. It does a lot for your general health as well. Therefore, we recommend that you visit Children's Dentistry at least twice a year for a preventive care appointment, which includes a professional dental cleaning and examination. Please read our patient reviews below.
Professional Dental Cleaning
During the cleaning the dental hygienist will remove the plaque and tartar that builds up on teeth no matter how good your oral hygiene practices are at home. Plaque that is not removed can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay. The gentle and professional cleanings performed at Children’s Dentistry will help your child preserve their teeth and gums.
Pediatric Dental Exam
Your child’s preventive care appointment is not just a “cleaning.” At this appointment the staff will also:
- Take any necessary radiographs and intraoral images to help diagnose caries (also referred to as tooth decay)
- Perform an oral cancer exam
- Provide fluoride application
- Issue oral hygiene instruction and dietary recommendations.
After all necessary diagnostic tools and exams are complete, a caries assessment is determined. A caries assessment is the level of risk your child is for future dental decay. This assessment tool helps the dental hygienist and Dr. Wilkerson to determine any adjunct treatment or services needed to improve, or maintain your child’s good oral health. These additional services may include more frequent cleanings, prescription toothpaste, sealants and athletic mouth guards.
Our goal for your child’s preventive care appointments is to develop a lifetime of optimum oral health by offering them a dental home. Our dental home will create positive dental experiences for your child as they grow from infants through their teenage years, which will then follow them into adulthood.

I switched my 2 year old daughter from a previous provider due to the staff and her being so uncomfortable. I was very nervous for her reaction to a new place, but it went wonderfully and I am so so pleased I decided to make the switch!
