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 have considered other dentists, but after our last visit we will not be going elsewhere. Your office made my autistic son relaxed and he had his best visit yet! Shasta is a real asset and we look forward to returning next time!

Patient Testimonial from Jacob W
Driving 2.5 hrs for a cleaning should show how much we love this group. Only reason we would ever leave is if we move out of State.

Thank you for being so patient with my daughter. She’s still new to going to the dentist so a lot of things scare her easily. The staff and Dr Wilkerson were VERY patient with her!

Patient Testimonial from Hailey M
We were highly impressed with this office and the super friendly staff. It’s an entirely different atmosphere than any other dental office! We were told my daughters chipped front teeth weren’t worth fixing since she would lose them in a couple years. My daughter says her teeth are sharp, so I wanted to get something done since your smile is your confidence. My neighbor told me to make an appt with the children’s dentistry in Charleston. I called, we got a fast appointment AND we’re scheduled back in a week to get her teeth fixed. I’m so highly impressed with the office, staff and doctor!

Patient Testimonial from Megan Y
The staff was just awesome! My son struggles being around new people and new places. They didn't immediately take him back and try to make him get in a chair. They talked with him and walked him around the office to let him warm up. Truly blown away from amazing care he received.
