It’s hard to find the time to bring your little ones in to see a dentist, we know. While any day is a good time to visit North Bay Dental, if you call us at 262-417-7326 and book a visit in February, you’ll be able to see us during National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM) and see how we observe this important month of oral health awareness.
At our Racine, WI dentist office, we treat patients of all ages to a variety of family dentistry services and much more. Whether you need to bring your kiddo in for a simple dental cleaning and exam or you need to book a complex full-mouth reconstruction for yourself, we can help you and your loved ones improve your oral health and the look of your smiles.
North Bay Dental has been proudly serving our local community and many surrounding areas as well for over 40 years. We’ve established quite a rapport in that time. But don’t take our word for it, you can check out our testimonials to hear from our satisfied patients first hand. Our dentists were voted number one on RateMDs.com among 63 Racine area dentists!
If you want to find out if your dental insurance will cover the services you and your loved ones need, we’ll be happy to conduct an insurance check for you completely free of charge. This way, you’ll have a good idea of what to expect, financially speaking.
We accept a large variety of payment options, including financing through third-party CareCredit. We can also tailor a treatment plan specifically for you so you can complete your payment in phases over time.
We close a little early at 4:00 p.m. on Fridays. Otherwise, though, we maintain the nine-to-five hours you probably expect and offer some extended hours that you might not. For example, we stay late in the evening until 7:00 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays and also open our office early at:
- 8:00 a.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays
- 7:30 a.m. on Fridays
- 7:00 a.m. on Tuesdays
Learn About Our Kid-Friendly Dentistry And NCDHM
We are not a pediatric dental office, but that doesn’t stop us from offering a large variety of treatment options suitable for the littlest smiles in your family. Here are just some of the specific dental options that we can provide for your children:
- Ensure your child’s first dental visit is comfortable and kid-friendly, helping them establish a positive association with the dentist for years to come
- Assist your little one in stopping the bad habit of thumb sucking by providing various tips to them and to you
- Help you and your children get through the frustrating and painful experience of teething while teeth emerge
- Provide a variety of pediatric dentistry services for patients starting at just a year old, which will allow them to become familiar with our office and team and look forward to visiting us again
We can also point you to resources that are specific to NCDHM. The American Dental Association has been nationally observing this awareness campaign since a one-day event on February 8th, 1949. The ADA then turned it into a week-long event in 1955 and then extended it further into a month-long campaign in 1981.
To help spread awareness about the importance of good oral hygiene habits and regular dental visits, the ADA makes free online resources available each year, including:
- Oral health presentation
- Ideas for classroom activities
- Fun activity sheets to hand out to children
The ADA also offers various materials, including booklets and videos that you can purchase through their catalog.
To help make your child’s dental visits as fun and comfortable as possible, we offer various amenities, including:
- A beverage station with refreshing water or juice
- Vibrating chairs to help relax your kiddo
- Cozy blankets
- Soft pillows
We also have a treasure chest full of toys in our office so your little ones can pick a fun prize to take home with them after their appointment. Our friendly team will always go out of our way to ensure your child is at ease in our care. We’ll greet them with warm smiles and answer any questions their curious little minds cook up.
If you’d like to treat your little ones to kid-friendly dentistry at North Bay Dental, call 262-417-7326 to book a family dentistry appointment with us. You can also stop by our easy-to-find Racine, WI dentist office in person or use our online form to book.
