At Carousel Pediatric Dentistry, we help children and parents better understand how to keep their smiles healthy and strong for a lifetime. Exceptional Apple Valley dental care begins with a visit to our conveniently located dental office. Our highly skilled and compassionate dentist in Apple Valley, MN specializes in treating young patients and protecting their smiles.

We Start with a Meet and Greet

It’s our goal to make your child feel comfortable, safe, and relaxed during their visit. The first dental visit gives us a chance to meet each other and show them that going to the dentist can be a fun and positive experience. We also encourage children to bring their favorite small toy or stuffed animal to make them feel more comfortable. They can even take a ride in the dental chair if they’d like!

Gentle Smile Exam and Teeth Cleaning

Depending on your child’s age and comfortability, we will then complete a full examination of their teeth, jaws, bite, gums, and oral tissues. We may also perform a gentle cleaning if needed. During the cleaning, one of our friendly hygienists will carefully remove any plaque or stains and finish up by polishing their pearly whites.

Patient Education and At-Home Instruction

As your child continues to grow, we always like to make sure parents know how to best care for their child’s changing smile. We offer demonstrations to parents and children on how to properly brush and floss their teeth. In addition to reviewing good hygiene habits, we also discuss dietary and lifestyle habits to ensure your child has the best opportunity for a healthy and beautiful smile.

Claim Our New Patient Special!

We understand how important and special your child’s smile is, which is why we offer new patient specials. Our current special is a free first dental visit for children under the age of two. This visit includes a free exam, teeth cleaning, and fluoride varnish.
