Need a Kids' Dentist? Eagle River Parents Trust Discovery Dental, Anchorage, Alaska

If you want to encourage your child to use good oral hygiene habits for life, make sure they're comfortable at the dentist's office from a young age. At Discovery Dental in Eagle River, Alaska,  Dr. Chad Winthrop practices children-centered care. From your child's first dental exam to the time they go off to college, the dentistry team will keep your child healthy and fully relaxed whenever they visit the dentist.

The Eagle River practice makes sure your child has fun whenever they visit the dental clinic by providing brightly colored toys, upbeat music, and even movies. If a child is afraid of the dentist's office, Discovery Dental offers a few options for making the exam more comfortable. The dentist can administer laughing gas, which wears off before your child even leaves the office, or oral sedation, which helps kids relax during the appointment. Talk to the dentist at Discovery Dental about which option might be best for your child.

Family Dentist

Once the appointment begins, a hygienist will teach your child how to take care of their teeth by brushing and flossing, encouraging them to take personal responsibility for their oral health. During the dental exam, Dr. Winthrop will check for cavities, ensure your child's mouth is developing properly, offer fluoride treatments, and apply protective dental sealants. 

In addition to general dentistry services, Dr. Winthrop will also perform laser frenectomies to correct lip and tongue ties. Plus, if you're child experiences a dental emergency, like losing a tooth during a hockey game, Discovery Dental will be available for immediate treatment.

The dedicated staff at Discovery Dental will teach your child lifelong dental hygiene care, and they'll ensure your child's teeth stay healthy, clean, and stain-free. For more information about Discovery Dental in Eagle River, visit their website.
