Update: I have been bringing my children to this Dentist for three years. I love everything about this dentist office. I was taken aback when I was called because my children have missed their appointment today. I explained their dad is the one that scheduled off to take them and he had an emergency surgery an aneurysm was removed from his head. Dell who is normally very kind proceeded to then say "okay well I have been told that your children will have to find a different provider". I then called back to find out if I can receive their medical records and Dell stated it is a law that they can only be sent to the new provider. She was rude and seemed irritated by my request. I was confused and asked again she seemed upset and transferred me to the Office Manager Margaret. Margaret was pleasant and explained what the process was and agreed to have those things sent over to me. It is unfortunate that this decision was made, because Dr. Lewis and her staff are excellent. The way this situation was handled was unprofessional.

The staff is the friendliest I ever seen! Everyone that came in contact with my son (very shy and nervous little boy) they treated so nicely even got him to take x-rays which he didn't want to do without me holding his hand. Made him feel comfortable to lay down to the cleaning. And engaged him like he was their friend. The last time I took him I forgot to confirm the appointment and they gave my appointment away. But they saw him anyway in 15 minutes! And still they played around with him so he would be nervous. Dr. Foster joked around and was nice. She gave me extra information on dental care for my infant son even. I love it here!

As first time parents my husband and I were excited to take our son to his first dentist appointment. My husband even took some time off from work to accompany us. To our surprise it was anything but that. They would not let him go in with us. They claimed there was not enough room for him and that "the whole family doesn't need to come". The dental hygienist was not only rude but lacked child friendliness. Dr. Foster was okay but seemed to be In a rush she spoke so fast I could not get a word in to ask a question. I was truly disappointed and am looking forward to finding a new pediatric dentistry.

The office is clean, beautiful, and is very comfortable. The staff is wonderful, and the doctor is great. She takes the time to explain everything to me, and when she does dental work on me she makes sure I am comfortable, and takes the time to do a good job.

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.
