Dentistry For Kids in Bend, Oregon

  • When to Start Going to The Dentist: It is recommended that you should take your child to the dentist between the time when the child’s first tooth comes in and the child’s first birthday. Generally the first tooth comes in between 6 – 12 months so it is a good idea to schedule an exam during that time once a tooth appears.
  • Welcoming your child: We understand what it takes to make sure your child is comfortable at his or her’s first dental checkup. We go out of our way to make sure your child is as comfortable as possible.  Our exam chairs have screens to allow your child to watch a favorite show, which reduces anxiety and keeps them entertained. 
  • Tandem Cleanings: Have a child but also need to see the dentist? Save time by scheduling your cleaning while your child is seen. Contact us to find out how.  
  • Contact us with questions: If you have questions about how best to take care of your child’s dental health, call, text or e-mail us today!
