Keep Their Teeth Healthy Year-Round With Dental Cleanings & Exams

Whether your little one is about to enter preschool or your teen is going off to college this year, go ahead and schedule their routine checkups with us. We’ll make sure their teeth are in good shape and look great for the start of the new school year.

Plus, if we identify any problems like cavities, we can try to take care of that before the summer is over. (And if they do have cavities, they’ll appreciate our metal-free fillings!)

If you’ve never visited Dr. Kerbel’s office, your kids are sure to enjoy their visit. We cater to kids and families! Our office has:

  • Coloring books
  • Toys to take home
  • TVs to keep them occupied while we work on their teeth
  • Fruit smoothies at the end of their visit (a favorite!)

Protect Their Smiles With Custom Mouthguards

Are your kids playing sports this school year? Make sure their smiles are protected with athletic mouthguards. The American Dental Association says that a mouthguard custom-made by a dentist can offer superior protection. Plus, custom mouthguards tend to be more comfortable and fit better, so your kiddos are more likely to wear them than let them sit in their backpack.

Even if your kids aren’t in organized sports, consider a mouthguard for bike riding, skateboarding, horseback riding, and any other activity where dental injury is possible.

Keep Their Mouths Healthy With Wisdom Teeth Removal

Once your teenager hits about 16 or 17 years old, we’ll keep an eye on their wisdom tooth development at each checkup. We offer consults for wisdom tooth removal, so if we determine an extraction could benefit their oral health, we’ll refer them to a skilled oral surgeon we regularly work with.

Straighten Your Teen’s Smile Without Braces

You might have just read that and wondered how we can straighten teeth without braces. Thanks to ClearCorrect orthodontics, we can use clear plastic aligners to tackle crooked teeth, crowded teeth, gapped teeth, and more. Older teens don’t have to feel like kids if they wear these discreet clear braces.

Plus, we’ll only need to see them for progress reports every six to 12 weeks – less than most orthodontists require. That means less time away from school, and less time for you driving to all those appointments.
