We are a Full Service Pediatric Clinic
Extensive Dental Services
Fluoride Varnish Treatments
The Dental Clinic provides full preventive, restorative and oral health care in a five-chair setting within the IWS Children’s Clinic. Our general and pediatric dentists cover the entire range of pediatric dental services and have special experience working with first-time dental patients and children with special needs. In 2013 the Dental Clinic completed nearly 7,000 appointments for more than 2,600 children.
The Dental Clinic’s bilingual staff makes oral health education an integral part of the oral health services we deliver. At each visit, our dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants and dental students explain to children and their parents why oral health care is important and why they need bi-annual dental visits. They also discuss how good nutrition impacts developing teeth and how drinking juice and soda can cause cavities. Our staff measures plaque at each preventive visit and compares results to previous visits to identify signs of improvement.
Easing the Worry
“We work closely with families to ease the fear and worry about dental appointments. In every appointment we take time to talk with the children about how brushing two times a day for two minutes can create beautiful, sparkling smiles!”
Dr. Lynse Briney
