Preventative Pediatric Dental Care for Fort Collins, CO

Start your kids off on a healthy foundation.

What is Preventative Dentistry?

Taking care of your kids’ teeth is more than just fixing cavities. Our goal is to stop those cavities before they start. Our secret weapon? Preventative dentistry. We're not just teaching your kids about oral health; we're helping them build habits now that'll keep them happily chewing and grinning for life.

At our visits together, we’ll teach your children how to take care of their teeth, address developing issues before they become big problems, and keep your children smiling.

Team Up For Your Children’s Health

Here’s how we do it:

Preventative Check-Ups
We're dedicated to staying ahead of your child's health, taking a proactive approach instead of reacting. Our aim is to maintain their oral health and not let issues escalate.

Avoid “Watch and Wait”
When your child can move their lips and tongue freely, picking up speech sounds is a cinch. Give them the gift of easy speech development, increased confidence, and social success.

Listen and Teach
We're eager to provide the right support for your family's hygiene routine. Our goal is to empower your children big and small to develop healthy independent habits.

“Both of our kids have seen the dentists here since they were babies, and we love it. The hygienists are so good with kids and are focused on building positive associations with dental care; they never pressure kids to do anything that feels scary or uncomfortable. The doctors are patient and great with kids too. We're always on and out quickly, and my kids actually enjoy their dentist visits!”


Let’s Keep Fort Collins Smiling!

Did you know cavities are the most common preventable disease?

Here’s how preventative check-ups can help:

Clean Sweep
Imagine plaque as the sneakiest party crasher in your kids' mouths, made up of saliva and leftover nibbles and full of bacteria. When we sweep away all that plaque, it sends a message to that tooth-eating bacteria that the party for them is over!

Goodbye Gum Disease
Plaque bacteria doesn't just attack teeth; it can also affect gums, leading to swelling, bleeding, and even recession. If left to progress, gum disease becomes incurable. That’s why our focus is proactive prevention and fast treatment.

Healthy for Life
Oral bacteria can lead to systemic diseases in adulthood. Prioritizing dental cleanings and effective brushing and flossing habits from an early age can significantly reduce the risk of conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers in the future.

“My children aren’t afraid of the dentist at all, and that’s because this team takes great care of their patients and provides a laid back atmosphere that isn’t intimidating for children! We are so lucky to have such amazing pediatric dentists in the Fort Collins area and I highly recommend them to anyone!”
