Just wanted you to know how much I am enjoying my new smile! My family (mother, 2 daughters, 3 grandkids) were so amazed at the difference. My 7-year-old granddaughter asked recently why my front teeth stuck out. I told her that was just the way God made me. Now when she asks how my teeth got straight I can say "That's the way Dr. Darnell made me!" - Carol

Do you see children?

We welcome patients in every age range. Children should begin seeing a dentist regularly when they are about two years old.  By learning good oral habits and helping to teach them to your child, you can help prevent tooth decay and give them a head start on a lifetime of good dental health. 

You can help by making sure your child's teeth are brushed and flossed regularly, using flouride toothpaste once they are old enough to refrain from swallowing it.

Curtailing snacks, especially sweet or starchy foods, will help prevent tooth decay.  Babies should not sleep with a bottle, as milk, formula, or juice has a tendency to pool in their mouths and cause decay.

For more information on how we can help you take care of your child's teeth, call 256-734-6444.
