Children’s Dentistry

At Sherwood Dental, we emphasize the importance of proper oral care for all ages. Preventative care is a vital part of dental health, and good habits formed early will have a positive impact. In order to establish a solid foundation for professional dental care, we take the steps necessary to make dental visits comfortable and welcoming for all of our patients, including children. Parents and children alike will appreciate the careful consideration given to making the earliest interactions with our dentists and our hygienists pleasant ones.

This will make a child familiar with the staff and the surroundings, and allow us to monitor a child’s development from the very start. We view this as an opportunity to partner with families in educating and coaching children from an early age on the importance of oral care, good nutrition and helping them learn effective brushing and flossing techniques.

By the age of three, most children will have their entire set of 20 primary teeth. Care at this stage is vital to protect the development of the permanent teeth. By setting the example from the earliest age, we seek to foster a relationship of trust and comfort among the children, their parents, and our dental staff that will serve everyone well through childhood, the teen years, and into adulthood.

It is important to emphasize that while preventative care may be perceived by some as optional, it is actually very vital to preserving dental health and preventing complex issues. Professional cleanings and examinations are tools for catching developing problems early and being able to resolve them before they progress further. Regular preventative care means fewer dental procedures for patients, and that means less expense overall for parents.

We welcome any questions regarding dental visits, oral care, teeth friendly nutrition and healthy oral development for your children, or any member of the family. Scheduling appointments for the entire family reconfirms the importance of such care to children, and allows them to observe their parent making dental care a priority, as well. We look forward to the opportunity to establish a relationship that will contribute to giving your child the best oral health and smile possible.

The staff at Sherwood Dental have always been awesome. I never have to wait more than a few minutes for my appt, they are very prompt and efficient. They also always try to resolve my issues the first time I mention them. I feel that Dr. Gaines does not perform procedures that are not necessary, just to make money, as he has honestly told me before that I do not need certain things, when my previous dentist told me that I did (and Dr. Gaines told me why my other dentist may have suggested it, and why he did not necessary agree). Love these guys!

Fabulous Dental Practice - First off they value your time as much as you do. The entire team is happy to work there, which shows in the way they treat the clients. The equipment is top notch. I'm very happy even if they find a cavity.

About as much fun you can have with going to the dentist. The professional and caring attitude of the dentists, hygienists, and office staff make you feel like part of their family. And if you and the Argonauts are lucky, you might get to see the Grey Cup along with a few players they look after.
