From routine exams and cleanings to providing specific dental treatments, the general dentistry team at Parrish Childs Dental is committed to giving you the best smile possible. Our office recommends that you see us at least once every six months so that we can ensure your oral health is where it should be. We practice gentle dentistry in each of our service offerings:
Our office also offers advanced cavity detection through our diagnostic laser. This technology allows us to detect tooth decay even in its earliest stages. The laser light we use operates by showing fluorescence when it is shined on a tooth that is experiencing tooth decay. This gives us early detection of hidden tooth decay, so we can monitor and treat cavities before they fully develop. The laser is proven to be over 90 percent accurate when it comes to diagnosing hidden decay and provides you with a simple, fast and painless examination. The laser treatment is just one more way “we cater to cowards!”
If circumstances dictate the need, and we do not perform a certain treatment, we will provide you with a specialist referral that we trust and that can address your issue. However, we feel we are the best “first line” defense, and partner, in your journey through life.
