Preventative, restorative, and emergency care; consultation and education


Preventative Care

Health teeth and gums start with preventative care. Routine preventative dental visits give us the opportunity to teach children good oral health habits starting from an early age.

Preventative services include screenings, exams, xrays, fluoride and sealants.

Establishing care by your child’s first birthday is especially important to monitor proper growth and development as well as preventing or reversing cavities.


Restorative Care

Despite parents best efforts, sometimes children get cavities. Depending on the size and severity of the cavity, it can be fixed with a simple restoration or possibly a crown. Dr Snell will discuss treatment options for your child after an examination.

Restorative procedures include white fillings, silver fillings, crowns, baby nerve treatments, extractions and placement of space maintainers.


Sedation Dentistry

Sometimes due to the age or nature of a child’s personality, traditional treatment may be difficult for young patients. Dr Snell is trained in a wide range of methods that help children feel comfortable during their treatment.

Depending on the child’s needs, treatment can be accomplished with the help of laughing gas, in-office conscious sedation or general anesthesia in an outpatient hospital setting.
