Providing Kids with Quality Dental Care!
At Smiles by Design, we believe that kids deserve the same quality dental care as adults. From an initial inspection of infant teeth to cleanings; sealants and; if needed; fillings, Dr. BriAnna Schraw can handle all your pediatric dentistry needs.
A Comfortable Place for Kids.
Visiting a dentists office for the first time can be scary for children, so we do our best to make them comfortable. Visit our kids’ stuff area below for links to games and kid-friendly information about teeth, brushing and flossing and more. When you visit Dr. Schraw takes a gentle approach with children, encouraging them to build good oral health habits for a lifetime, including regular brushing and flossing.
Squirmy Kids? We Offer Laughing Gas
We know kids get nervous and squirmy when they have to have a cavity filled, a tooth pulled, or anything more than a routine cleaning. Just like adults sometimes need to calm their nerves, we offer laughing gas (nitrous oxide) to help keep children comfortable during procedures. Nitrous oxide has been used in dentistry for over 150 years, so we know that it can be safely used to reduce fear and anxiety without causing any serious side effects.
Making Dental Care Easier for Parents.
At Smiles by Design, we value your time. We know that starting appointments on time is especially important when kids are involved. We’ll always do our best to minimize your wait.
Early morning appointments help reduce missed time in the classroom.
We also make caring for your children’s teeth more affordable. We are network providers for a number of dental insurance plans and will file most other insurance claims for you. In addition, should your children need more advanced restoration, financing is available through CareCredit.
Questions About Your Child’s Dental Care?
When to start children with dental care?
Here at Smiles by Design, we like to see your baby about the time they get their first tooth so we can help you care for your child’s teeth properly from the beginning. This allows us to:
- Prevent Decay
- Save You Money and Your Child Treatments because of early prevention
- Help your child form a healthy, life-long habit of going to the dentist without fear
You may have other questions about dental care for your children. You can find a lot of other answers about dental care here on our website in our dental information center, many of which apply to children’s teeth as well as adults.
