There is nothing as heartwarming as seeing a smile on a happy little face. The team at Parkside Dental wants to help keep those darling little smiles in Murphy, Wylie, Garland, Richardson, Plano, and surrounding communities happy and healthy. We provide gentle, quality dental care for patients of every age. Our office is kid-friendly, with a fun and welcoming atmosphere. Nitrous oxide and oral sedation are available, allowing hyperactive, fearful, or problematic children to receive treatment without the stress.
The first dental visit
Relax. The first dentist appointment does not need to be stressful for you or your baby. The initial visit rarely involves any dental procedure; it is more of an orientation. We will examine your child’s mouth, and discuss healthy habits and your child’s oral development. Your little one will discover that the dentist’s office is not scary at all. When you visit Parkside Dental, it is a fun and friendly place with a kid’s play area, video games, and televisions in every room.
This will be one of the most important dental care appointments of his or her lifetime for many reasons:
- If your child ever breaks a tooth, develops a cavity, or needs other dental work, the experience will not seem so intimidating if he or she already knows and likes the dental team.
- Beginning dental care early allows us to monitor your little one’s oral development, and prevent problems or treat them at the optimal time.
- We will educate you about caring for your child’s teeth and avoiding common problems such as baby bottle decay.
When little smiles grow up
Choosing a family dentist rather than an exclusive pediatric specialist ensures that your children will not have to see a new, unfamiliar dental team as they grow up. We strive to develop a good relationship with parents and children, and make dental care a positive experience. As babies grow to become toddlers, teens, and then young adults, they learn to take responsibility for their own oral health and future dental care. We will work with you to help them form healthy habits and a good attitude about oral health, setting the foundation for a lifetime of great smiles.
Drs. Larsen are parents themselves, and they know how precious your children are. You can feel confident that your entire family will receive gentle, comfortable treatment delivered with compassion. This is a true family dentistry, and every patient receives the same level of care that we would want for our own children, parents, friends, and other loved ones. You and your family are invited to join the Parkside Dental family of healthy, beautiful, happy smiles.
