Children’s Dentistry in Franklin
Children of all ages are welcome in our Cool Springs office for their regular checkups and cleanings, as well as fluoride treatments and orthodontic procedures. It is important to start good dental practices while children are still young, so they become second nature. A child’s first few visits are critical and can shape their view of the dentist.
The American Dental Association recommends parents bring their children in as soon as the first tooth appears or before their first birthday. The ADA also offers tips on how to make your child comfortable when visiting the dentist:
- Set morning appointments when children are well rested
- Maintain a positive attitude about the visit
- Do not bribe children to come
- Do not use a dental appointment as punishment
- Have a talk prior to the visit
Dr. Foster and Dr. Dobberstein further suggests that creating an air of excitement about the dentist’s office can turn the experience into one that children look forward to. Many of his younger patients get a kick out of the technology we have in our office and our staff can demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques in a fun, encouraging manner.
Taking Care of Teenaged Smiles
Just about every adult will confirm that the teenage years are an especially trying phase of life. From the demands of school and home life to the sudden changes their bodies are going through, teens often feel overwhelmed. The last thing most teens need is to worry about the appearance of their smiles. Regular dental checkups can keep teen smiles clean, vibrant, and healthy as they begin their transition into adulthood.
Dental Care for Adults and Seniors
We offer a full range of services for adults and seniors. Many adults who are re-entering the workplace after many years or who want to boost their chances for promotion might benefit from a teeth whitening system or veneers to rejuvenate and enhance the radiance of their smiles. Our patients can also look forward to precision dental prosthetics from bridges to full dentures that promise to restore the beauty and functionality of a healthy smile. Your time is important to us and we understand you have a busy schedule. We will work to set an appointment time that is convenient for you.
