We understand how consuming dental pain can be, which is why we make every effort possible to see patients with a dental emergency the same day– even if they are new patients. We are here to help. Toothaches are not the only dental emergency. If you have a broken or chipped tooth, we will do our best to get you fixed up quickly.
If you are having a dental emergency, please try to call us as early as you can so we can arrange a spot in our schedule for you. Call us at (419) 238-4385 and we will get you in as soon as possible!
We love seeing your little ones! We typically begin seeing children around three years old. We encourage parents to bring their children along with them to their own cleaning appointments or a sibling’s appointment beforehand so they will become familiar with our dental office and see how much fun it can be.
Even though we typically start seeing kids around age three, we will be happy to see your child at any age. If you have any questions about your child’s teeth or how to take care of them, please let us know.
At your child’s first dental appointment, we will take the time to get them familiar with all the equipment and noise they hear when they visit the dentist. If they are really young at their first visit, we may simply brush their teeth and take a look around their mouth to check for cavities.
We realize it is important to make every experience in our office a good one for your kids. At the end of their appointment, they can pick out a prize from our new and improved tooth prize box!
Our office utilizes digital x-rays which allow us to SHOW you the size and location of your cavities, extent of periodontal disease, infection, etc. Additionally, it decreases the amount of radiation you receive, along with processing the radiographs quicker (which means less chair time for you).
We use specialized digital cameras that are made to use in the mouth. It allows us to take pictures of your teeth and soft tissues. This allows you to see your mouth as we see it. This makes it much easier for us to communicate with our patients.
We often take images of all your teeth at your first appointment to have record of them. At subsequent appointments, we take images of teeth we are “watching”. A “watch” is a term we often use when a tooth is starting to show the signs of having a cavity or fracture lines. The record of digital images can be used to help determine if things are changing and whether we need to go ahead with treatment or if we should continue to monitor the tooth.
