Gentle & Effective
Here, we take a unique approach to dentistry. Our goal is to be conservative enough that we don’t always resort to restorative treatments, but careful enough that decay doesn’t get out of hand. We find that this saves you both stress and money when caring for the entire family’s dental needs.
Establishing Healthy Routines
Providing dentistry for kids is a task that we don’t take lightly. Our team understands that a child’s experience with us has the ability to mold the way they view the dentist for several years to come. That’s why we always aim to make their visit both educational and fun. Our goal is to create excitement around visiting the dentist so they’ll be inclined to come back every six months.
A child’s at-home routine is equally as important as their time spent in the dental chair. We work collaboratively with you and your child to explain the importance of good dental hygiene and provide you with the tools to maintain it. When we see that they’ve been doing a great job, we reward them!
All Ages Welcome
We offer dental care for children of all ages and unique dental needs. We recommend your child visits the dentist by the time they’re one year old or whenever their first tooth erupts. Visiting the dentist’s office for the first time is a big deal! If you have more than one child, oftentimes bringing the more seasoned kiddos can help ease any anxiety they may have about their first visit.Contact Us
How can I help my child have positive dental experiences?
Kids frequently look to their parents when determining how they should react in new situations, so we always recommend that parents speak positively about dentistry and how important dental care is. Our office also has a kids’ play area, noise-canceling headphones, TVs with Netflix, and pillows and blankets to help our young patients have a great time in our office. If your child’s first visit to our practice is coming up, you may find it helpful to bring them in for a quick tour beforehand to see our cozy office and meet the friendly team they’ll be working with.
What services does my child need?
We recommend that patients of all ages and dental backgrounds visit our office biannually for routine dental cleanings and checkups. In addition to regular preventive dental care, kids can also benefit from additional preventive treatments like dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Aside from that, every patient receives customized dental care that is based on their unique needs. If your child is very anxious or has trouble sitting still in the dental chair for long periods of time, we’d be happy to discuss our safe and effective sedation options with you as well.
Is children’s dentistry affordable?
Milltown Family Dentistry strives to make dental care accessible and affordable for as many families in Carrboro as possible. We accept a variety of popular insurance plans, so if your child has dental insurance, their routine care as well as several other dental services will likely be completely covered. We also accept payment plans through CareCredit®. Visiting the dentist regularly throughout childhood is a huge part of maintaining a healthy smile for life, so if you have any financial questions or concerns for our team, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
