Toddlers – and Parents Too – Benefit From Pediatric Dentistry

Dr. Doug Callow, a father of three, enjoys children so much he spends some of his time away from our Plymouth, MI dentist office visiting local schools and daycare centers to educate kids about oral hygiene. The rest of our team likes kids too, and it shows. We’ve got a waiting area especially for youngsters, complete with toys. And you’ll see photos of some of our young patients displayed on our walls.

We Offer Age-Appropriate Dental Care

While we will gently clean your toddler’s teeth, their earliest visits are more about getting to know Douglas A. Callow, DDS. And they’re a great time for you to ask questions about teething or any other aspect of your child’s oral health. As your child gets older and permanent teeth come in, we’ll make sure their bite looks good and their teeth and mouth are healthy.

We’ll also introduce preventive care during their dental exams like:

  • Fluoride, which strengthens your child’s teeth and helps inhibit the bacteria that cause tooth decay.
  • Dental sealants, which provide an added layer of protection on tough-to-clean areas like back teeth.

We can also outfit your young athletes with custom mouthguards to help prevent injuries during sports. (You might benefit from a mouthguard too if you are suffering dental damage from teeth grinding.)
