Protecting Your Child’s Teeth Through Oral Exams

Signature Smiles provides dental exams and free X-rays for children. Our kid-friendly dental office utilizes the latest in digital X-ray scanning technology, which significantly increases the accuracy of our pediatric dentist’s diagnosis of your child’s oral examination.

During an oral examination, our pediatric dentists always use radiographs during examinations to help determine the presence of decay in the spaces between children’s teeth. The combination of visual oral examination and radiographic evaluation gives our pediatric dentist the most comprehensive findings. The dental exam will allow the pediatric dentist to evaluate a kid’s level of emotional maturity and ability to receive treatment with or without sedation or whether they need to be referred to a specialist.

Treating children is quite different than treating adults. Children have a shorter attention span and can become more apprehensive of a situation, like a dental procedure. We try to conduct our examinations in a fun manner by allowing kids to watch TV shows or by being very interactive with the children.

Dr. Stanworth was awesome very personable and very good with kids. would be keeping him as my girls dentist.
