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 Jessica G
We had a wonderful visit and got extra information. All my questions were answered. My daughter said when we left that wasn't so bad mommy. Thank you guys for taking the extra time talking her through things and not getting frustrated because she was crying. Overall I am very happy to drive an hour and thirty minutes to have excellent care for my daughter.

Patient Testimonial from Erica M
Every employee from start to finish are so kind! The dental hygienists are so patient with my youngest who is still scared. My 6 year old used to be so scared and now she loves going, even going back now by herself to get her teeth cleaned!

Patient Testimonial from Ashley M
We went to Children’s Dentistry for our 1 year olds first dental visit ever. The staff was helpful, kind, and professional. We had a great experience that lasted only about 20 minutes from arrival to end (which is a huge plus when you have a toddler). Very efficient, well organized practice! I highly recommend!

Patient Testimonial from Cindy D
We initially used your office for special treatments fillings, extractions. But after the care she was given we decided to use your services solely. This allows treatment to be provided quickly without a referral. Everyone is so kind there.

Patient Testimonial from Meredith W
Absolutely amazing atmosphere! The staff is wonderful and attentive esp with my two year old whom is TERRIFIED of all doctors. Dr. Wilkerson is amazing and so friendly. I’ll just put it this way, our insurance doesn’t have Dr. Wilkerson in their preferred providers network, but I will not consider taking my child elsewhere because I fully trust her and her staff to provide the best care to my child. Love them - highly highly recommend.
