Fairview Dental Care
I had great hopes for fairview. Very slick and modern set up. But they charged premium prices and did poor work. They charged me 3 times what my former dentist charged for my crown. And the crown fell off. For a cleaning, I sat in the chair though no less than four workers (they tend to breeze thorough so fast I couldn't keep track) asking the same quest ions, before they got around to the cleaning. I know that they give you your own television to watch but it only added to the confusion with a dozen tvs in the background, by the time I got out I was mentally exhausted. I would have preferred a more personal touch for the price and less flash.

H. Elaine Cheong DDS
Just moved to Columbia and I could not recommend this dentist more. Staff was amazingly friendly all around. I had no problems at all! None. Not any with my paperwork or my insurance. I have never had a dentist that went through all of my X-rays with me and made me feel so good about my dental hygeine. The dental hygienist was so friendly, I was sad when she said that she was finished and Dr. Cheong was going to be with me - until I met Dr. Cheong. She was just as pleasant as the hygienist. 5/5 star service.

Dr. Hamilton does not believe in undue pain for his patients. He also participates in clinic work with the same philosophy, professionalism, and excellent bedside manner.

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.
