I had my first teeth cleaning at Dr Brends office today. Tamra did a great job with the cleaning. It was completely painless. I actually made the appointment because I had a filling fall out of my front tooth. Needless to say I was really embarrassed to smile. Dr Megan was sympathetic to my dental emergency and worked me into the schedule to fix my tooth the same day. She was gentle and the filling blends well with my natural teeth.

Old front desk lady is cranky, but get over her and the people working with you are super kind and kinda funny. My cleaning went smoothly and the Dentist showed me areas of concern, but only one cavity to fill. My last dentist two years ago said I had three that I never filled. Guess he was wrong.

Unfortunately we are seeking dentistry elsewhere. I believe Dr Brend is just to old to be working on teeth. The staff is WONDERFUL and so kind but myself my son and my mom have been having problems with fillings and things that needed to be fixed. Its just time to move on.

My family is new to Bismarck and a co-worker recommended we go to Dr Brend. We are very pleased with our experience. The staff is helpful and friendly. I was also impressed with Dr Brend, he was very personable and honest.

I am very pleased with my experience at Brend Dental. I was seen for the first time this past Saturday when I had a toothache. The doctor fixed my tooth and I feel so much better. I would recommend Brend Dental.

Our family has been seeing Dr Brend since 2001 when we moved here-we have never been disappointed. I love the addition of Megan to the office and we have ALWAYS been treated very well!

The doctors are kind and work pretty quick. The receptionists are amazing! They have all the answers, and are helpful in getting you an emergency appointment.
Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
