Treatment and Prevention

At KidzSmile Dentistry, we want to do more than simply treat your child’s current dental condition; we want them to have strong teeth and gums that are healthy for a long time. We teach kids the importance of oral hygiene for long-term dental health. Dr. Jones will perform a thorough assessment of your child’s teeth and gums before determining the best possible treatment.

We pay close attention to details and symptoms of potential dental problems such as toothaches, decay, sensitivity, and others. Your child needs routine cleanings to prevent the accumulation of plaque and food debris, which are the causes of many dental problems. Children who are fearful may require sedation.

Dr. Jones’ expertise and experience will make sure that your child gets the most effective procedure. If you want your child’s teeth assessed or need treatment, please get in touch with us so that we can schedule an appointment. Our friendly staff will answer any questions.
