Dentistry for Children

Preparing your young child for their visit at Dexter Dental Studio

Our studio is a full-service family dental office where we enjoy providing a child-friendly environment and helping kids develop positive feelings about dental health.

You can also help prepare your young child for their visit by:

  • Reading books or watching videos made for kids about visiting the dentist
  • Telling them they will be able to select a new toothbrush at the end of their dental visit
  • Planning a fun activity following your child’s dental visit

Our dental providers are specially trained to work with children ranging from infancy to adolescence. To help your child have a positive experience, we use the most current dental techniques and equipment designed for children.
We have an established reputation as a clinic that can provide complete dental care for children who are physically, mentally, or medically challenged.

Special Offerings for Children

The Health Lab at Dexter Dental Studio helps children develop. healthy habits that lead to a lifetime of excellent oral health and overall well-being. Our lab includes age-appropriate and hands-on activities and experiments. These help create a comfortable environment while teaching children important lessons that leave a lasting impression on children and parents alike. Our ultimate goal is to prevent cavities through education of both the parent and the child.

In our office, we are excited to see our littlest patients and help their parents understand the nuances of caring for an infant’s mouth. There is a lot to discuss from nutrition to development to fluoride, and we are happy to help caregivers navigate this exciting time.

These are a few of the natural products that help us keep little mouths healthy.

  • BPA-free filling material
