Most of us grew up with dentists who fixed problems we already had. That means our earliest dental-visit memories were filled with needles and drills. No fun! Today, there are SO MANY better alternatives.
For example, if we catch a cavity early, a special resin will limit its growth. If we get it even earlier, a topical medication will stop it. Best of all, a mouth swab – when your child is very young — tells us unique ways to treat unique problems. And that means your kid may never have a cavity. Ever.
At Giggles and Grins, we use an “open bay” concept that accommodates several children at once. It takes the fear away because they model each other… they actually encourage each other. It’s teamwork that makes each of them more independent.
Parents are sometimes a little amazed when their child – as young as three – walks back with one of our trained specialists all by themselves. And why not? They find toys, video games, prizes, surprises, all sort of fun experiences just waiting for them. (No wonder they look forward to visiting us again.)
It’s always smarter to stop a problem before it happens. A lot of our kids play contact sports – football, basketball, soccer. Or they’re bikers, or skateboarders. They may wear a helmet… but that won’t protect their teeth.
In a short appointment, we take a custom impression, and then we let them pick out their favorite design and color. (Which means they’ll wear them!) Just 24 hours later a one-of-a-kind mouthguard is ready for any sport, any activity. Preventing an emergency visit if the unexpected happens.
The families who come to Giggles and Grins become like family to us. We see their kids when they’re very young. We watch them grow up. And occasionally, we meet the next generation!
But don’t take our word for it. The best recommendation comes from the people who walk through the door. You’ve never been here? Curious about what that experience might be like? Click the arrow and hear – spontaneous, candid, unrehearsed – why some of our long-term moms have kept coming back.
