Children's Dentistry

At Lakewood Dental Trails, we love treating kids! One of our greatest pleasures as dental professionals is getting children as excited about their dental care as we are. You deserve the peace of mind that comes from knowing your kids are receiving gentle and experienced care. Our entire dental team is dedicated to ensuring we provide a comforting environment for your whole family.

We Know Your Child Is Unique

We don’t believe in a cookie-cutter approach to dentistry, and this is especially important for children. As parents, our dentists recognize that every child is unique and responds to oral care differently. They are flexible and will adapt to your child’s needs to make sure that he or she gets the best treatment available right here at our Temple, TX dental office.

"Children’s dentistry" is more than just a term that indicates we welcome young patients. It is a commitment to helping children appreciate dental care and be willing and active participants in maintaining their oral health. Children are still growing, and their teeth are still forming. These early stages of growth are important to their future dental health. If we can make it fun to care for their teeth, the rewards will be great for all of us.

We recommend that you bring your child to Lakewood Dental Trails when their first baby tooth appears, but no later than their first birthday. Baby teeth will fall out eventually, but until they do, it's essential to keep them healthy.

We Love Your Kids!

The moment you walk into our office, you will find that we are dedicated to our youngest patients. We provide video games and flatscreen TVs for entertainment, a children’s play area for amusement, and amenities to make them comfortable during treatments. We provide pillows and blankets and scented towels for relaxation.

Our office also schedules family dental appointments for your convenience. You can arrange all your family’s office visits in one trip to our office. Save time, save gas, and avoid the hassle of repeated trips for individual appointments.
