For kids ... I love taking care of kids. I have six children of my own, and treated all my own children. And feel I have a special rapport with kids, although now I'm probably the grandpa, and not the big brother or the dad like I might have been before. If they're very young, we like to give them a ride in the chair. They love that.
To do an exam on, say, a one year-old, we would do, what we call, a knee-to-knee exam. He's sitting with mom. Our knees may be touching or close together. The child is laid in mom's lap with her head in my lap and we can look at their teeth and have a good time. We explain everything first. It's wonderful taking care of children.

Choose A Racine, WI Dentist Who Treats Your Child With Respect
Your child’s age will determine how much we do during their first visit, which the American Dental Association recommends to take place after they begin to get teeth but before their first birthday. We’ll also let your child guide their appointment and never pressure them if they start to get nervous.
Your child will enjoy a gentle introduction to their biannual dental appointments. They’ll meet with our doctors and dental hygienist and have an experience tailored just to them:
- We’ll introduce them to our cleaning tool (“tickle brush”)
- We’ll count each of their teeth
- We’ll let them ask any questions
- We’ll let them choose a prize from our treasure chest
Your child is sure to have a great time and look forward to future appointments.
Learn How To Care For Your Child’s Baby Teeth
During your child’s first dental appointment, our dental hygienists will discuss preventive treatment options with you. Despite popular belief, baby teeth are important to your child’s oral health in a number of ways:
- They serve as a guide for permanent teeth when they erupt
- They help your child chew food for good digestion
- They allow your child to enunciate clearly as they learn how to speak
- They are susceptible to tooth decay and cavities, which can cause your child pain
We’ll make sure that you and your little one know the best ways to keep their smile happy and healthy.
And as your child ages, we’ll be right there with them to provide all the dentistry services they may need, like:
- Biannual dental exams and cleanings
- Athletic mouthguards
- Emergency dentistry services
