Gentle Children's Dentistry in Durham, NC
Starting proper hygiene habits early is essential to help children enjoy their visits to the dentist. In fact, we recommend booking their first appointment as soon as the first tooth shows or by the age of two. This allows us to get to know your child and teach you how to take care of their new teeth. Plus, you can shower us with any questions you may have.
Our children’s dentist in Durham always ensure each appointment revolves around your child. We want to instill good habits but also positivity so they continue in the routine of visiting the dentist. Therefore, we make each visit unique to their needs and most importantly, super fun! Our team uses their great personalities to make kids laugh, learn, and feel great.
While they are enjoying a TV show or discussing Pepper Pig with one of our team members, we’ll carry out a thorough examination to find any potential issues and assess their oral health.
These exams can be booked at your convenience as we offer before and after school appointments to fit your busy schedule!

Caring for Smiles Big and Small
Here are some specific services offered at our Durham dental office.
During brushing it can be difficult for children to reach all surface areas of their teeth. This can lead to food debris becoming trapped, which promotes decay. With dental sealants, our dentist can fill in these grooves using a clear gel that hardens and makes brushing a breeze.
We’ll check your child’s teeth and gums to make sure they stay healthy and clean. During this appointment, your dedicated team passes on their knowledge so both parent and child can benefit from superior brushing and flossing.
Dental emergencies happen, whether it is during their little league game or when they’re enjoying popcorn at the movies. A cracked, broken, or damaged tooth can strike at any time. Thanks to our open hours and after-hours service, we can assist you in a timely manner.
