Dr. Graves enjoys treating entire families, and seeing those families grow through the years. We understand each child is unique and we adjust our services to meet the needs of each patient.
Our office prides itself on taking the “scary” out of dentistry. We take the extra time to guide your child through their visit with us. This allows us to explain our process and to be attentive to how we can make them feel more comfortable. As Dr. Graves and many of his staff have children, we have numerous “tricks and tips” to encourage brushing and good oral hygiene. Education is key to proper dental care and our staff will teach you and your child how to avoid any dental problems in the future.
Our office offers a comprehensive range of oral healthcare to include: cleanings, routine checkups, and treatment. As your child grows, we also provide fluoride treatments, sealants (BPA free), and sports mouthguards.
Children can get cavities almost as soon as their teeth come in. And although children will lose these baby teeth, cavities can affect the developing adult teeth and the position of those new teeth. That is why the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends children visit the dentist within six months after the first tooth appears and no later than their first birthday.
