Your Gainesville General Dentistry Practice

We are the first line of defense against oral health problems!

When it comes to caring for your oral health, our team of experts are the best resource to keep your smile looking its best. No matter your age, we’re here to help prevent, diagnose and treat any dental issue you may be facing. Have crooked teeth? Do your gums bleed? Issues with your jaw? That’s where we come in.

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 dental office based in Gainesville, GA  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:

  • Crowns and bridges– When functionality or contour of your teeth needs to be restored. 

  • Sealants – A coating that helps protect your child’s adult molars. 

  • Fillings  – A way to restore the tooth back to it’s normal function and shape after damage and decay. 

  • Implants – An artificial replacement for your missing teeth and can support crowns or dentures. 

  • Gum Disease (Gingivitis) A mild form of gum disease that causes irritation, redness, and swelling around the gum at the base of your teeth.

  • Periodontal treatment An exam that will allow us to notice the early signs of Gingivitis, periodontitis, and other ailments and be able to recommend a less invasive treatment. 

  • Braces (Orthodontia) – Devices used to align and straighten your teeth and help position them in regards to your bite. 

  • Root canal therapy – A procedure centered around alleviating pain, removing damaged tissue, and saving your tooth. 

  • Dental emergencies – Emergencies such as broken teeth, knocked out teeth, or a bitten tongue that need immediate attention. 

  • Bonding – Usually performed to fill in gaps between the teeth, fix a chipped or slightly decayed tooth, or change the color of your teeth altogether.

Our office also offers advanced cavity detection through our diagnostic laser services. 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.
