  • Toddlers and young children: We enjoy helping lay the foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles by helping form positive attitudes about dental care from an early age. With age-appropriate preventive care such as sealants and specialized services designed to ensure that your child’s mouth is developing properly, we love helping our youngest patients flourish.
  • Teenagers: As children grow into their teenage years, they become more susceptible to tooth decay and oral hygiene issues. This is also the time of life when orthodontic treatment to straighten your child’s teeth and correct any bite issues is very common. We take the time to earn your teenager’s trust and develop a plan to keep their smile healthy as they move into adulthood.
  • Adults: From routine dental cleanings to cosmetic dental care the team at Gentle Dental Care is here for you.We want to help you achieve the beautiful, healthy smile you’ve always wanted. We work with each patient to create a personalized preventive care plan to keep your teeth and gums healthy and offer a wide array of services to enhance your smile or restore its health.

Experience the benefits of a family dentist

When everyone in your family sees the same dentist, everyone benefits. We can work with you to schedule your family’s appointments on the same day to minimize your driving, saving you time and money. In addition, when your child sees you leading by example and enjoying your time at the dentist, they are more likely to develop a positive mindset about the experience.
