While your teeth may look fine, this does not mean that your mouth is healthy. Good oral hygiene practices and regular dental care are necessary in order to enjoy the long term benefits of a healthy smile. Dr. Kelley and her team provide routine and preventive care to assist in achieving this goal. With regular appointments, it is possible to detect dental problems early, leading to prompt and conservative treatment.
Dr. Kelley offers compassionate, friendly dental care to patients of all ages. Parents are encouraged to bring their children into the dental office by the age of 12 months. This is an optimal time for an introduction to dentistry, because there are rarely problems to correct at such a young age. When gums and teeth are kept clean, and bottles of juice or milk are not given at bedtime, there is only a slight risk of caries. Consequently, early dental experiences are far more pleasant for little ones just getting started with care.
Children are welcomed into our office by a friendly staff. The first visit may involve only a tour and "meet and greet" with Dr. Kelley and her assistants. The tour gives children a chance to get to know the office environment without having to sit in a large chair under bright light.
We take dentistry at their pace! As our young patients allow, we will check their teeth and gums. These early checks provide us with the opportunity to prevent cavities and infection with sealants and cleanings, and with guidance on home care.
Every one of us has changing dental needs as we go through life. Dr. Kelley meets these needs with understanding and skill. From cavities to cosmetic issues to infection near the root, she utilizes state-of-the-art technology to confirm diagnosis, and explains to patients the details of their condition as well as dental treatments. As needed, restorative care is planned and performed. This may include:
