Children's Dentistry

Here for the whole family

Dentistry for your Child

As family dentists, Kimbrough Dental Care provides dentistry for the whole family, and are always happy to see children in our practice. If your child requires specialized treatment, such as braces, we can refer them to a specialist, or may recommend they see a pediatric dentist (someone who specializes in treating children). Sometimes our patients take their children to a pediatric dentist when they are young, but then they transition to our office when they have “outgrown” their pediatric dentist, and are ready to visit a family dentist instead.

Your child’s first visit

Your child’s first dental visit should take place after that first tooth appears, but no later than their first birthday. Why so early? As soon as your baby has teeth, he or she can get cavities. Being proactive about your child’s dental health today can help keep his or her smile healthy for life.

On your child’s first visit, we may ask you to sit in the dental chair and hold your child during the examination. We will gently examine your child’s teeth and gums for signs of injuries or cavities. Once that part of the exam is over, we will clean your child’s teeth and give you tips for daily care. We also may apply topical fluoride to help protect the teeth against decay. We will make sure your child is receiving adequate fluoride at home. Most importantly, we will review your child’s oral hygiene habits, and help you understand how to best clean and care for your child’s teeth.

How to Prepare

Start early! To get your child ready for the visit, talk to him or her about what’s going to happen and be positive. Have your child practice opening his or her mouth to get them ready for when the dentist counts and checks their teeth. Reading books or watching videos about first dental visits may help your child be less fearful and more confident.

Tips for a Great Visit

  • Schedule a “practice visit”, to let your child see the office, and meet our staff in advance.
  • Schedule your child’s visit at a time that they are usually well-rested and cooperative. Avoid nap times, mealtimes, and times when they are normally very tired.
  • Make sure your child has had a light meal and brushes their teeth before their appointment, so they won’t be hungry during their visit.
  • Save snacks for after the visit, so they aren’t on your child’s teeth during the exam.
  • Talk to them in advance about what to expect, or perhaps read a book about going to the dentist.
  • Speak positively about your own experiences at the dentist.

All the staff were really nice and polite and acted like I was a regular customer. Their office was very proficient. I had made an appt to pull or extract a molar. When they called me back, all the preliminary collections of data/tests/x-rays very proficient. They were very fast, so I didn't have to sit and wait and wait and wait. And gave me two options of extraction because I had a bad infection. Believe it or not I had to fill out new-patient paperwork and I was only in there 20 to 25 minutes for the total whole visit! And then they said they were just file insurance first and then but they didn't pay would send me a bill instead of me paying deductible or co-pay right then! This is definitely THE BEST DENTIST EVER!!!read more

It had been years that I had been to a dentist and I have anxiety. So this gave me extreme anxiety. So this was my first appointment in years and I went to get X-rays and a treatment plan. Dr. Scott and everyone was super nice and understood how I was feeling. I thought to myself I was going to need a lot of work done. But to my surprise in the end it wasn’t what I had thought. My pocket is very happy for that. And I made my next appointment to start my treatments. Plus even made one for my daughter too I was so happy with them.read more

The service has been excellent, the staff has been wonderful and friendly and the work has been (most important of all) pain free. And that includes a root canal. I ask a lot of questions, and they have answered and explained all of them to help me understand everything we're doing. Dr. Kimbrough(s) and staff are terrific and should be considered at the top of the list for any person in need of dental care. Not just in Springdale, but in Northwest Arkansas.read more
