Our philosophy is that we want to be able to treat the entire family. That looks like a lot of different things, I guess. But we're able to see children. We're able to see teens. We're able to see the adults. Families that have a lot of kids, for instance, oftentimes – I've got a lot of kids, so getting them where they need to go sometimes becomes a challenge, you know? If I've got one going here and one going here, one going there, it's challenging to get them all to the different doctors that they need to.
I feel like as a family dentist, we're able to get everybody in kind of at the same time. A family can come in, they can bring the entire family. We're able to treat them all at the same time. They can have all their teeth cleaned at the same time in one appointment and get it all out of the way.
But more than that, if something happens to one of those family members, they don't necessarily have to think, “Oh, who am I supposed to call to get this taken care of?” Because we're a family dentist and because we're able to treat the entire family, we're kind of a one-stop shop for families. We enjoy that. It's great. I have patients now that are getting to the point they're having kids, and I'm seeing kids of who I used to see the kids. You know what I mean? The kids that I used to treat are having kids now, I guess. It's neat to see those relationships build through the years. But that's kind of what sets us apart, I think.

We typically start seeing children around the age of 3. That doesn't mean that's the first time that we see them in our office. Oftentimes, we've been treating the parents along the way. They've had kids, they're looking at bringing them to the dentist. We always offer to let the parent bring the kid in with them for a cleaning at 1 or 2 or whatever, just to get the kid used to coming into the dental office and being in the room.
We usually take a look at them. If we see something going on or see something abnormal, we may refer them to the pediatric dentist to get that looked at. We like to have the kids in the office before 3 at least a time or two with the parent just to get a feel for that. Then from the age of 3 on, typically, they do just fine. They come back, and we're able to clean their teeth. Oftentimes, the first visit in our office is kind of laid back. We bring them in. We clean their teeth, but we don't go over the top with a lot of tools and that sort of thing. We just want them to be comfortable more than anything else.
That first visit really is about making the child feel at ease. We get them back and just have a good time with them. Then from then on, we usually don't have any issues at all.
We offer great family dental care here, from ages 3 on up. We’ll welcome your little one with a “happy visit” that will get them acquainted with us and help them get used to all the sights and sounds of a dentist office. If necessary, we can refer you to a qualified pediatric dentist who can treat your child’s specialized needs.
Whether your child needs a routine dental exam and cleaning, or you need dental veneers to spruce up your smile, or your spouse needs to replace several teeth, we can handle all your dental needs here. We have an experienced dentist in Dr. Fitts, who has assembled a compassionate and qualified team who are dedicated to providing a high level of dental care.
