A lifetime of smiles starts with a good foundation
Give your kids a great start building good oral hygiene habits and monitor their progress as they grow into their beautiful smiles. We understand how challenging and rewarding family care can be and kids need extra special consideration. Having a healthy smile is such an important part of childhood, let’s get them started on the right path with guidance that’s personalized for their needs.
Getting ready for your first appointment
Feel free to talk to your child about the upcoming trip to the dentist. The main purpose of your child’s first visit is to relax, have some fun, and start building a positive relationship with the dentist. Sometimes, not knowing what to expect can make people feel a little nervous. Here’s what your child can expect during their first appointment:
Talk and Listen
We will talk to you and your child, explain what we’re going to do and why and familiarize your child with some of the tools we use. We speak in kid-friendly language and explain any lingo so they can feel as comfortable and assured as possible. See! We’re not so scary after all.
We will gently examine your child’s gums, tongue, teeth and overall health. Our exam will uncover any areas of concern or tricky spots that may need some extra attention at home. We will provide you with personalized guidance and make a note to pay special attention to those spots during the next appointment.
We might ask your child to show us how they brush their teeth and then give them gentle instructions on how to improve brushing their teeth at home. We would love to answer any questions you or your child have about dental health.

to schedule an initial consultation & exam.
Your consultation will include an examination of everything from your teeth, gums and soft tissues to the shape and condition of your bite. Generally, we want to see how your whole mouth looks and functions. Before we plan your treatment we want to know everything about the health and aesthetic of your smile, and, most importantly, what you want to achieve so we can help you get there.

PHENOMENAL EXPERIENCE!! I haven't been to the dentist in years, I was neglecting it due to fear of dental pain mostly. I had an old filling that partially fell out, so a trip to the dentist was required. I selected Davis Dental due to their amazing google reviews, and now I see why! They took great care to make sure I was comfortable and relaxed throughout the whole experience. I never once felt any pain or even moderate discomfort! The dental team as a whole made everything smooth from the moment I walked in the door (really from the mom
We love Dr Smith and his staff. Always accommodating, friendly, and thorough. All my kids have done braces with him. My oldest son had to have several mouth surgeries due to a football injury and Dr Hans was amazing with all of them. We recently moved and we still drive an hour to go to Dr Smith. My family won’t go to anyone else. He’s the best!
