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.

Patient Testimonial from Natalie C
I can't begin to express my sincere gratitude and thanks to Dr. Wilkerson and the staff at Children's Dentistry. I have never been treated so kind by any type of business professional in my life. From start to finish; check in to check out, it was the greatest experience and service that anyone (and I mean ANYONE) could ever ask for or expect. They literally leave no stone unturned when it comes to customer service. I was so impressed with the kindness, professionalism, service, and friendliness of the entire staff including Dr. Wilkerson. This office goes way above and beyond to ensure that your child has the best dental visit any parent or child could wish for. I really appreciated how involved they allow the child to be, as well as how informative and patient they are with not only the child, but the parent as well. You are not just considered as "another patient" and rushed through the process. They allow and encourage the parent and the child to ask as many questions as necessary to ensure the child & parent are not only at ease with what's going on, but also comfortable with the decision(s) being made. I truly felt as though I was more than just a patient. I felt as though we were family and long time friends. Then to top it off, the gifts and goody bags the child receives is amazing and thoughtful. Not to mention, the wonderful coffee cup and delicious cappuccino mommy got when we left 🙂

Patient Testimonial from Nikki R
You get one chance to make a first impression. Can you imagine what that's like for a pediatric dentist with an office full of young kids? Children's Dentistry goes above and beyond to create a warm, fun environment for their patients. Each child is greeted by a smiling staff member, the office is bright and cheery and no detail has been left to chance. Kids are offered a pair of sunglasses to wear while their teeth are being cleaned, they get to choose their favorite flavor of toothpaste and the procedures are quick. Dr. Wilkerson and her staff are always smiling and it's always a pleasure to visit. Kudos!
