Your Child’s Experience at Eastern Dental

Children's Dentistry

We offer stress-free first visits for toddlers, at which time we talk about their smiles and how special it is while Dr. Boone makes a game of counting their teeth. After a quick look to assess their oral health status, they receive a prize for being such a good patient.

If Dr. Boone finds any areas of concern at the initial visit, he will schedule a follow-up appointment to address the issues and apply preventive treatments. If imaging or restorative treatment is necessary, we use intraoral cameras and X-rays designed with our young patients’ comfort in mind.

If your child’s teeth and gums look healthy, our friendly staff will typically schedule a visit within the next six months for a regular exam including a thorough exam. Dr. Boone finds that giving your child the freedom to ask questions about their dental experience calms any fears they may have. His young patients quickly learn there is nothing to be afraid of.

Dental Hygiene Education for the Whole Family

At Eastern Dental, we provide dental education for you and your child. The basics of proper brushing and flossing are reviewed and Dr. Boone explains how to turn dental hygiene routines into quality family time. As your child grows, our dentist emphasizes the benefits of eating healthy and drinking plenty of water. He also educates them on the dangers of poor oral health habits and issues that can arise from and dental neglect.

Dr. Boone is proactive when it comes to the health of your child’s teeth and accomplishes as much as possible during each visit so that your child’s treatment is not prolonged. Our staff is happy to work with you to ensure that dental visits fit conveniently with your schedule for the best dental experience possible for you and your child.
