We Love Children

February new patient special: free sedation. Call our dental office for more details, (303) 323-8149.

Not all dental offices love to see children, but we do!

Because we realize that a child’s first dental visit is often the most important one, we take extra time and effort to make sure that it’s a special one. The best time to schedule the first dental visit is right around the age of three years. Our entire dental team – dentists, hygienists, dental assistants, and front office staff – are dedicated to making each visit a comfortable, pleasant one!

If children are introduced to dentistry in a positive way and have positive experiences, they typically won’t be afraid of the dentist.

But some children do have anxiety about visiting the dentist, often even if there seemingly is no reason for it. We offer gentle dental care, and we also have the option of administering nitrous oxide. Also known as “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is a mild sedative, which is administered through a small mask that fits over the nose. It’s been in use in dentistry since the mid-1800s and can be a great option for children (and adults, too).

Laughing gas can be particularly helpful for kids who:
• have had a bad experience at the dentist
• have a strong gag reflex
• have a physical handicap or disability that makes it hard to tolerate dental treatment
• have mild or severe anxiety
• don’t like to be touched
• have to undergo complex dental treatment

Please note that our dental office also offers two other types of sedation (IV sedation and oral sedation), but we don’t use these on young children.
