Dentistry for Kids, Big & Small

In nearly 40 years of practicing family dentistry in Eugene, I’ve seen it all.

One thing I see more than most is a little frustrating. It’s parents who wait to get their children the care they need until an emergency has forced their hand to take action.

This sounds a little too familiar to you, doesn’t it?

What happens is, those kids grow up to do the same to their children, and before you know it, it seems like most everyone just waits until they have a problem on their hands to come see me rather than seeing me right off the bat – and under much better circumstances.

It’s true: You can avoid so much useless pain for yourself and for your child if you see me as your first choice and not as a last resort. If you do that, we promise we’ll be your first and last stop for comprehensive family dental care.

You can secure better smiles for yourself and your child at my practice, Eugene Family Dental, because we know that the secrets to maintaining a smile at any age aren’t really secrets at all: They’re simply cornerstones of preventative dental care combined with necessary procedures.

Our methods are often quick, painless, and aided by cutting edge technology that will change your perception of what going to the dentist is like no matter your age.

Options For Kids

One look at our Eugene offices will help to get you at ease for the high-quality family dental care we strive to deliver. We have a waiting room that’s more like your own home than an impersonal corporate medical facility that will only treat you like a number.

Not every dentist or practice can offer that level of comfort, but we think it’s important for your peace of mind. When you trust us with your family, then you deserve to be treated like our family.

By taking the fear out of family dental care, it means your child is less likely to throw a tantrum when it’s time for their next appointment. In fact, they’ll actually be looking forward to it!

We will help you discover the options and needs of your family across a broad spectrum of services, including:

  • Digital X-Rays – Quicker and more accurate than traditional X-ray techniques, our system allows us to easily identify problem points in your mouth, reducing the wait time of your visit. And since they use half the radiation of normal X-rays, that means it’s safer for you and your children. No matter the problem, we can get to the bottom of it in a fraction of the time thanks to digital X-rays.
  • Invisalign Clear Braces – If you’re 15 or going on 50, crooked teeth can embarrass you just the same. Kids get the brunt of it, though, but Invisalign clear braces can reshape smiles of all ages into works of art without bulky wire-metal braces that are a pain to clean.

Our new software imagining system lets you see what your new smile will look like in just a matter of minutes. For kids, seeing is believing, and this technology will be too much like a video game for them to stay scared.

  • Athletic Mouthguards – Kids play hard, but you want to keep them safe from injury. We can design customized athletic mouthguards that are more durable and more comfortable than over-the-counter guards. When they smile for that team photo, you can be sure they’ll be proud of more than their accomplishments.

Of course, regular check-ups and teeth cleanings allow us to identify any problems before they start, regardless of age. This is critical to preventing dental emergencies that might require drastic measures and multiple repeat visits.

Fortunately, the technology in our hands can help reduce the time and pain that comes with even the most extreme cases, but you should know by now that waiting for things to reach that point is no longer an option.
