Pediatric Dentistry

At McMillan Family Dental, our team of dental professionals is dedicated to giving your entire family the best care possible, and we take great pride in providing our youngest patients a path to a lifetime of exceptional oral health.

It’s important to teach your children about the essentials of maintaining good oral health. Make sure you’re taking the time necessary to instruct them on proper oral hygiene habits. Preventive dentistry care at our office, along with your great home care, will help them maintain beautiful smiles and oral health for a lifetime.

Our pediatric dentistry services include:


Back teeth are the most susceptible to developing decay caused by trapped bacteria. To help your child avoid cavities, we can apply dental sealants to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth.

Fluoride Application:

Most consider fluoride varnish the best cavity-fighter. It’s used to strengthen the enamel and can eliminate tooth decay in the early stages.


If your child develops a cavity, we can restore the tooth to its natural function and appearance with a filling. We first clean out the decay and remaining bacteria, and then apply a filling to the tooth in need.

Emergency Dentistry:

We are here to accommodate you and your family. Should an unexpected oral emergency arise, we are available 24/7 and are always willing to do whatever is necessary to help.

Phase 1 Orthodontics:

If your child has orthodontic issues before their permanent teeth have erupted, we provide Phase 1 Orthodontics, also known as interceptive treatment, to help correct those issues.

We will work with your family’s schedule, and our warm, friendly staff is willing to go the extra mile to take care of your child’s dental needs.
We recommend bringing your child in for a dental appointment by their first birthday. We have a patient and knowledgeable staff that takes pride in treating the smiles of the future.

Have you ever heard of kids asking to see the dentist?
