Back to School Tooth Cleaning

While there will be a staggered start for some children, August 16th will mark the start of the school year in Landrum and August 17th in Greenville. If it’s been longer than six months since your child’s last dental visit, now is a great time to give us a call and schedule their next appointment.

Choosing to have dental care performed during breaks and holidays can help ease stress and prevent having to remove your child from school for appointments. It can also help to ensure your kiddo has the strongest and healthiest smile year-round.

Helping School-Aged Children Care for Their Teeth

At Wood Creek Dental, we provide age-appropriate educational services for children beginning in toddlerhood. By the time children are elementary school-aged, they are often able to perform even more advanced tasks such as flossing. This can help prevent issues such as tooth decay and gum disease while also empowering your child to take more control of his or her oral health.

Early childhood visits to our office serve multiple purposes in addition to educating and empowering your child. They also help normalize professional dental care and work to instill a sense of comfort with cleanings, examinations, and other necessary services at an early age. This can help to set a strong foundation for optimal oral health throughout life.

Our caring, experienced, and gentle family dentists take care to help children feel safe and at ease while they are in our office. Patient and thoughtful, we are proud to do our part in helping ensure your child develops a life-long commitment to oral health. During these visits we will also work with you, answering any questions you have about potential future services, such as orthodontics, that may be needed as your child grows.
