our family dentistry services
One of the primary focuses of family dentistry is general and preventive care. This includes routine cleanings and examinations – typically spaced six months apart – as well as pediatric services like sealants. General dentistry also focuses on periodontal health, oral cancer screening, and treatments for tooth infection and decay.
Proper oral health starts early and, as part of our family dentistry services, we provide education and guidance for at-home care to help ensure each of your family members can take control of his or her oral health. With age-appropriate instructions (and help from mom and dad from time to time) we will answer questions and give personalized advice to help prevent problems and preserve a strong, healthy, and beautiful smile for life.
we care about your family
To help protect the health and safety of our patients, we utilize advanced technology and techniques for all of our services. This includes:
At Desert Smiles, we provide the same environment for our own families as for yours. We are dedicated to providing comprehensive care that is safe and effective for even the youngest members of your household.
Your child’s first visit to the dentist can occur as soon as teeth have erupted. In fact, the sooner you start bringing your kiddo in for preventive services, the more likely they’ll feel safe with dental care as they age.
Gentle and patient, Dr. Tenney and our experienced family dentistry team work with children of all ages and stages of oral development, offering services including:
- Oral health screenings and examinations
- Cleanings and fluoride treatments
- Sealants and metal-free restorative treatments
- Habit counseling (thumb sucking and pacifier use)
an experienced & friendly children’s dentist
Dr. Tenney has substantial experience with children, having worked in a pediatric dental office in Texas. However, experience alone can’t make someone a good children’s dentist – for that, compassion, thoughtfulness, patience, and gentleness are needed. A dose of playfulness doesn’t hurt either.
Drawing on his experience in children’s dentistry along with his experience as a father, Dr. Tenney is able to make our youngest patients – and their parents – feel at ease, safe, supported, and cared for while visiting our office.
If you are unsure about when to bring your child in for care, call our Glendale office and schedule a consultation. We can help you determine when it is appropriate to start routine care based on your child’s specific stage of development.
