We also give away toy prizes, stickers, or toothbrushes and floss after their appointment to reinforce a positive experience. However, the most important part of their visit is the kindness and encouragement of our professional staff. Dr. Freeman and our dental hygienist are gentle, patient, and family-friendly. You'll find that visits to our office may make your child more interested in taking good care of their teeth.
Your family's best defense
While regular checkups and professional cleanings are an integral part of your family's oral health, a good oral hygiene routine is paramount. Make sure you and your family brush at least twice a day with an ADA approved fluoride toothpaste. The ideal time to brush is after major meals and before bedtime. We also recommend that you floss once a day. However, brushing and flossing is essentially ineffective without the proper technique. During your appointments, we can review the proper brushing and flossing techniques.
Be sure to brush every part of the tooth, including the outside, inside, and chewing surfaces in a back and forth motion. When flossing gently rub the floss up and down the sides of each tooth to remove any remaining food debris.
A balanced diet is also an important part of your family's oral health. Try to limit your child's exposure to sugary or starchy snacks.
Frequent snacking can be our teeth's biggest enemy. If your child does need a snack, choose a healthier option like fruits and vegetables. The bacteria in our mouths feed off simple carbohydrates like sugar. When they feed, they produce acids that eat away at the enamel and cause cavities. They can also solicit a response from our immune system that leads to an infection in the gum tissues. This is commonly known as gum disease. You can learn more about your family's best defense against tooth decay and gum disease during a scheduled appointment.

What our patients are saying about us
"I am so impressed with this practice! We found them while hosting an 11 year old orphan from Latvia. Not only did she do top-notch dental work for him, she was so kind and patient with him, acting out all of the parts of the procedure since he didn't speak English! One of the staff even mentioned she had tried to brush up on her Russian language skills and used a few Russian phrases with him. I cannot even articulate how much that meant to us. Above and beyond, for sure!" - Tiffany L.
"In my last visit with Dr. Freeman, I had a crown, a filling, and some adjustments to another tooth. Although my visit took 2 hours, it was very pleasant. Dr Freeman is always smiling when she comes in. She is very attentive, caring and has as gentle touch when working in my mouth. She explains every step of the process as she is working. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is afraid of dentists." - Henry Y.
"I recently have had quite a bit of dental care on my old teeth. Dr. Freeman and her team did a great job caring for me. So gentle, professional and friendly. My mouth feels so much better!! Don't hesitate to choose this dental office. You will be glad you did." - J. D.
