What Is Children’s Dentistry?
Unique Care for Younger Ages
Preventative care is important for children. Early and regular cleanings help us make sure that your child’s smile stays as healthy as possible for as long as possible!
Regular, early check-ups allow us to identify and fix issues as early as possible, making your dental health much easier for the years to come!
X-rays are especially important for children because it gives us insight into how their teeth and gums are developing. This allows us to develop a more unique treatment plan!
Teaching proper brushing techniques is an essential part of preventative care for children. The best part is that this is treatment they can bring home!
Why Children’s Dentistry is Important
Preventative Care for a Smile that Lasts
If left unattended from an early age, your teeth and gums can quickly develop long lasting issues that become harder to treat with age. Beginning proper oral care during childhood can not only prevent these issues but set your child up for a healthy smile in the years to come, when they might otherwise begin experiencing common dental issues. We are the perfect place for your Northwest Arkansas children’s dentistry needs.

Financing Your Dental Care
More and more studies show that your oral health is directly linked to your overall health. Getting proper dental care needs to be as important a part of your healthcare routine as exercise, eating right, and having a yearly medical exam. But that doesn’t make dental care any easier—especially if you don’t have dental insurance.
Our team understands and that is why we have created Coverage to Smile About.
