Explore Our Facility
Every parent knows that a single bad experience could make your child terrified of the dentist’s office. That’s why we built a kid-friendly facility and employ a team of professionals who know how to work with children. If your child has any concerns or worries, our team can soothe their fears and leave them smiling when they leave the office.
When your child walks in, they see rows of brightly colored chairs and a fairy tale kingdom at the front desk. Throughout the facility, they’ll find colorful mirrors, wall tapestries, animal art, prize machines and other touches that make their visit a calm, enriching experience. Your child might not even realize that they’re at the dentist’s office when you first bring them in.
Each individual room has its own TV mounted to the wall. If your child needs a distraction, they can watch a TV show or movie while the hygienist cleans their teeth. Our team educates your child about the importance of good dental hygiene in a way that’s understandable for them. Afterward, your child gets a free toothbrush and a prize to take home so they look forward to their next visit.
Learn About Our Services
At Hines Little Smiles, we offer extensive pediatric dentistry services for the various stages of childhood. Here’s a look at what your child gets at our facility:
- We provide regular dental check-ups where our team examines your child’s teeth, removes plaque, looks for cavities and makes sure that everything’s developing properly. Even if your child isn’t having dental problems, regular check-ups are essential for maintaining your child’s health.
- Whenever your child visits, we educate them about brushing, flossing, nutrition and avoiding tooth decay. This instills the importance of brushing regularly and getting a healthy diet, building habits that will last long into adulthood.
- If your child has anxiety, they might not be able to sit in the dentist’s chair without panicking. We can provide sedation or anesthesia that helps your child relax while we complete the procedure. Over time, your child will associate their visits with relaxation instead of anxiety.
- Children with special needs can have a hard time visiting the dentist. We make adjustments to ensure that your child is happy, calm and comfortable during their visit. If you have questions, we’re always available to talk to you about what you can expect.
These are just a few of the services that we offer at Hines Little Smiles. Get in touch with us today to learn more about our expert care and child-oriented service.
