When it’s time for your child’s dental appointment, you want a team of dentists trained in pediatric dentistry. Walton Center for Family Dentistry is a family-friendly office that provides dental care for children, teens and adults in the metro Atlanta area. With 700+ reviews and a 4.9 out of 5 stars rating, patients in Loganville, Grayson and Snellville trust us with their family’s dental care.

Our Walton dental team is friendly and fun! We start with a positive experience from the very first visit by making dental care easy and educational for our younger patients. This sets the tone for every appointment that follows. Your children get to know us while becoming accustomed to what happens during a dental visit, all while learning more about dental care.

Preventive Care and Healthy Habits

Both the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommend taking your child to see a pediatric dentist within six months of getting their first tooth, or by their first birthday.

A pediatric dentist will take the time to explain why healthy teeth and gums are so important. Since preventive care promotes good oral and overall health, we have all the tools to empower your children on their dental care journey, which lasts a lifetime.

Oral Hygiene

We start early with good habits. These first appointments are beneficial to parents, too. Along with teaching kids how to properly brush and floss, we can answer questions, provide recommendations, and give information straight from the source.

For example, we share fun, helpful facts like how baby teeth are just as important as permanent teeth, children under three only need a swipe of toothpaste the size of a grain of rice, and guidance on thumb sucking. It’s great for both kids and parents to learn something new!

Biannual Checkups and Exams

Starting at a young age, we recommend visiting the dentist every six months for routine exams and cleanings. When you and your child consistently come in, we’re able to monitor our youngest patients’ teeth through every stage of their oral health development.

A member of our team is there to assist as we walk through each of the tools used, even letting kids touch some of the equipment to familiarize themselves with it.

We offer a range of other pediatric dentistry services as well. If a dental issue comes up, give us a call and we’ll be happy to go over treatment options and make an appointment to better discuss next steps.

Kid-Friendly Practices

Throughout our office, we have kid-friendly decorations, along with blankets and pillows that help children feel at home while in the dental chair. We also play popular cartoons on mounted flat-screen HD TVs, so kids can keep their mind on something fun and familiar during their checkup. At the end of the appointment, we offer a treasure chest filled with prizes and goodies!

Our dentists and hygienists are trained to help kids understand what happens during treatments and procedures. We give honest, thoughtful answers to all of your children’s questions. Our practice is experienced in pediatric dentistry, and it shows in our compassionate, family-friendly approach to dental care.

For children with special needs, please don’t hesitate to reach out about any additional consideration or accommodation. We’re committed to providing gentle, dedicated dental care to every patient, and we’re happy to go over options with you.

Dental Anxiety

Our team takes the time to ensure your children feel at ease while visiting Walton Center for Family Dentistry. From the moment your family walks in, we greet you with smiling faces. There are many ways we make sure your children are involved and comfortable every step of the way. This includes letting them know what we’re doing and the tools we’re using throughout the visit. By doing a cleaning and examination this way, they’re informed of what’s happening, which in turn gives them a sense of control and understanding over the situation. It’s a great learning process and helps manage a common fear before it grows into adulthood.

For younger patients, dental anxiety is a normal feeling when visiting the dentist. If your child experiences nerves before an appointment, our number one tip is communication. Speaking to your child helps smooth the way before their visit. We’ve seen it time and time again—over the years, they’ll even begin to look forward to visits!
