Children learn from their parents. If there is any habit worth passing down, it’s the habit of regular dental care.
Making Visits “Happy!”
Dr. Vandewater’s office encourages patients to bring their young children with them so they can see what it’s like to have a dental check-up.
When your child turns 3 and you feel that he or she is ready for a visit of their own, schedule an appointment for a Happy Visit. Your child will have their first pediatric dental exam with you right by their side.
Family schedules are busy enough. Make your life easier by scheduling all your dental appointments at one place.

The staff was great with my 6 year old.
My 11 year old looks forward to his appointment.
We wouldn’t think of going anywhere else.
My kids cannot wait to get their teeth cleaned.
Thank you for a great experience.
He acknowledged that I was a very busy full-time working mom.
