Kids Dentist near Watertown, Wisconsin
I am looking for a kids dentist near Watertown, Wisconsin. Where is my local family dentist?
Looking for a kids dentist? Choosing a kids dentist is a big decision. Finding a good kids dentist near you in Watertown, Wisconsin can seem even more challenging. Have you considered a family dentist near Watertown, Wisconsin? A family dentist has extensive experience with kids and adults, and can provide pediatric and adult dental services you and your kids need. Some kids dentists are even certified in pediatric orthodontics, giving you one stop for the dentists and when your child needs pediatric orthodontic services such as braces and retainers (or the clear braces product Invisalign). Another benefit to a family dentist is that you can schedule your family’s dentist appointments on the same day, and get answers to all the questions you have about your family’s teeth. A local family dentist in Watertown, Wisconsin can also provide care for your kids beyond childhood, giving you a lifelong dentist who knows your family and your dental history.
Area Dental Clinic has family dentists in Watertown, WI, with pediatric experience and a demeanor that will put your little ones at ease. Your child’s first appointment with the dentist is a knee to knee exam, where the dentist sits knee to knee with the parent and your child leans back so the dentist can examine their mouth. The dental office also has televisions to keep them occupied (or distracted), and a kind and friendly dental staff that can make your child comfortable. The staff also has the knowledge to answer any of your questions, such as:

• When should I schedule an appointment with my kids’ dentist? The American Dental Association recommends kids see the dentist by their first birthday, followed by biannual appointments.

• How do I teach my child healthy brushing habits? Start early and make it fun. Use a small brush and infant toothpaste when your child is still a baby. For other tips about teaching your child to brush, ask your kids dentist or visit our blog.

• How often should my child see the dentist? After their first appointment, you can schedule a yearly appointment until your kids dentist thinks they are ready for biannual dental check-ups and cleanings.

• What does my dental insurance cover? Dental benefits vary, so don’t be surprised if your family requires more pediatric and adult dental services than your benefits cover. Talk to your kids dentist or staff members about your options if your dental insurance doesn’t cover a procedure, pediatric orthodontic services, braces and retainers, the clear braces product Invisalign or any other pediatric and adult dental services. Often, you can set up a payment plan and set a plan for any future care needed.
Where can I find an orthodontist near me? When does my child need orthodontic services?
If your child needs pediatric orthodontist services, don’t panic. Schedule an orthodontic screening with a orthodontist or kids dentist certified in pediatric orthodontic services. Typically an orthodontic screening should take place between the age of 7 and 12. The orthodontic screening is the orthodontists or dentist’s opportunity to meet and evaluate your child, review past medical records, discuss treatment options if needed and create a treatment plan for the future. Both of our family dentists near Watertown, Wisconsin, Dr. Gibson and Dr. Thomas, are certified to provide pediatric orthodontic services and products, such as braces and retainers, to fix crooked teeth and correct alignment problems. Along with traditional bracketing, we do offer the clear braces product Invisalign.

The clear braces product Invisalign is an alternative for straightening your teeth without braces. The aligner trays are comfortable, smooth and made of virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. There are no metal brackets that can break and be uncomfortable in your mouth and no wires to tighten. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and gently aligns teeth into proper position. To find out more about Invisalign, schedule a free consultation with one of our experts at Area Dental Clinic.
