Positive dental experiences during childhood are the foundation of a lifetime of good oral habits and bright, healthy smiles. Our team at Wildflower Dental & Orthodontics understands that many children feel anxious about dental visits, and we always take the time to help our younger patients feel at ease in our care. We strive to make dental visits for our younger patients easy, educational, and most of all, fun.
It is recommended that children see a dentist when they are around 1 year old, or when their first tooth erupts. Let us take care of your little one’s smile. Schedule an appointment today.
To accommodate all of your child’s dental needs, we provide a comprehensive list of services to keep their teeth and gums healthy. We understand that a trip to the dentist can be stressful for a child, so we calmly explain what we are doing in very simple terms while keeping the atmosphere light and cheery. We’ll talk about what causes a toothache, what happens if a tooth has cavities, and answer any questions he or she might have. We know that for a children’s dentist, the most important thing we can do is keep them feeling happy and secure, with no surprises.
Our range of pediatric dental services include:
- Routine Pediatric Cleanings & Exams
- Low-Radiation Digital X-Rays
- Fluoride Treatments
- Protective Sealants
- Tooth-Colored Fillings

Anxiety Free Children’s Dental Office
We understand that sometimes, no matter how fun a place can be it can still cause lots of anxiety. In fact, even a lot of adults have a fear of the dental chair too, so if your child is scared it is completely normal. Sometimes the fear is so great it can inhibit treatment. In these cases, we offer safe and effective conscious sedation techniques to alleviate stress and allow your child to receive the proper care they need.
At Wildflower Dental & Orthodontics, we provide nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral conscious sedation. Both of these options are proven to be safe, is approved by the ADA, and used by dentists worldwide. They promote an extreme sense of relaxation and well-being, while your child remains fully conscious for the treatment, allowing us to communicate. If you are worried that your child may be fidgety or nervous, conscious sedation could be a relaxing option.
