Your Child’s First Visit
Our Pediatric Services
At The Tooth Cottage we offer an array of services that will grow with your children through the years, and put them on the right path for a lifetime of good oral health. However, we understand that no two children are alike and certain patients require a specific approach. We also acknowledge parenting styles vary significantly and we will do our best to accommodate your preferences. At the cottage, we prefer to meet families personally before making any recommendations. Dr. B enjoys practicing conservatively and is open to discussing a minimally invasive approach when appropriate.
- Multiple areas of treatment needs on a young or pre-cooperative patient.
- Patients for whom the use of sedation may protect the developing psyche or reduce medical risk.
- Some patients with special healthcare needs. If sedation is the appropriate route for completing your child’s dental treatment, Dr. Mari will discuss options available to you when appropriate. If you want to discuss any questions or concerns regarding sedation dentistry, give us a call.
Did you know the quality of sleep your child receives affects their growth and development? Reading that sentence out loud may sound like a no brainer, yet Sleep Disordered Breathing in children is often overlooked by medical and dental professionals alike. It is all related to a child’s airway and how well they are breathing through their nose, especially at night. Snoring, grinding, restless sleep, bed wetting, thumb sucking, morning headaches, seasonal allergies, speech impairments and hyperactivity are all little clues that tell us your child may not be resting adequately. We also start seeing developmental changes in the oral cavity and positioning of teeth. It is common for parents to ask dentists about grinding, thumb sucking, or pacifier use. Often times the accepted response will not address the core of the problem, or the consequences. As a mom who personally has experienced the consequences and understands the struggle, I am happy to be able to provide this service for my patients… because baby teeth will eventually fall out, but the effects of good sleep will last a lifetime.
Great Service. The staff are amazing. 👍 My daughter was nervous at her dentist visit. New place. They made my daughter feel very comfortable during her visit. The Dentist & her assistant talked her through everything during her treatment. Step by step. In the end.. My daughter was pleased with her visit. She became a little reporter, asked them questions what’s this & that do. 😊 Highly Recommended!!!!! Great Place for Children!!!

If your child knocks out a PERMANENT tooth, find the tooth and place the tooth in Save-A-Tooth™ solution or milk, not water. No milk? Have your child spit into a cup. Call our office immediately. Try not to touch the root of the tooth.
***If your child knocks out a BABY tooth, we can’t put it back in the mouth. But make sure you find the tooth! Call our office to determine if an appointment is necessary.
