The Right Start for Little Martinsburg Smiles
From their first tiny grin to the first visit from the tooth fairy, your kids’ smiles lift your spirit and just make life so much better. So what can you do to care for their smile in the best way possible?
Treat them to dental care that covers generations.
Some general dental offices, even those that call themselves family dentists, don’t like to see kids under the age of 12. That’s not Tuscarora Family Dental Care! We love caring for Berkeley County kids right here in our Martinsburg office. We think families are incredible and love it when generations of people, from toddlers to great-grandparents count on us for their care.
A Fun a Friendly Experience
We are happy to offer pediatric dentistry, starting at age one. Seeing little kids along with their parents and older siblings helps remove the fear many children experience with their first dental visits. Plus, getting the right start on positive, smile- and health-affirming dentistry can set the stage for a lifetime well-being. We know that when your child is happy about her dental care, she is much more likely to be happy about taking care of those super-important teeth and gums!
Confidence that Leads to Success
The right dental care is about so much more than your child’s teeth.
Oral health is linked to overall health – even in kids. When little teeth are decayed or hurt, or gums are inflamed and infected, kids have a hard time getting their nutrition, sleeping well, focusing in school, and feeling confident in social situations. It can even affect their behavior. Honestly, who wouldn’t feel cranky with the pain they can’t quite explain to their parents?
On the other hand, studies show that kids do better in every way when they feel confident. They get better grades. They thrive socially. And they do better in all kinds of stressful situations.
Imagine that– success actually does start with a smile!
Kids Love Us
Our pediatric dental care starts with getting to know both you and your child. We believe that building relationships with our young patients and their parents is the foundation of all positive dental experiences. The truth is that kids love us and we love them right back!
Our doctors are wonderful with kids. They know how to get on their level, communicate and listen to them, help them feel completely relaxed during any procedure, and make visits so much fun, some kids actually look forward to Tuscarora Family Dental Care visits!
Our Pediatric Dental Services
Our highly-trained dentists here at Tuscarora Family Dental Care can take care of any smile with any requirement from infancy through early adulthood, including those with special needs.
We offer a full range of childhood dental care including:
- General & Preventive Dentistry – Our comprehensive exams using digital and panoramic x-rays as well as intraoral cameras; tooth cleanings and hygiene, gum care, laser frenectomies, fluoride treatments, sealants, and sports mouth guards help keep little smiles safe, comfortable, and healthy. We can even screen kids for sleep apnea – yes, they can have it too!
- Restorative Dentistry – Our restorative pediatric dentistry is tailored to meet the needs of growing smiles. This includes tooth-colored cavity fillings, porcelain inlays and onlays, dental extractions, and anything else necessary to repair or strengthen those precious teeth.
- Cosmetic Dentistry – Believe it or not, cosmetic dentistry can be a great help for kids who have experienced dental trauma, have congenital problems that cause embarrassment, or for teens who could use a little confidence booster. When your child needs cosmetic help, we can offer a variety of non-invasive solutions such as cosmetic dental bonding and smile whitening.
