How can we help you?
We encourage our patients to be proactive when it comes to learning about their dental care. Dr. Michael Allen and our team always explain procedures in detail, and we know that there’s a lot to think about. That’s why it’s vital that you share any concerns or questions you may have about your proposed treatment. The best way for us to meet your expectations is to understand what’s important to you.
We’ve gathered a few of the questions our team hears most often and shared them here. You probably have many more of your own, so please call our office and a friendly member of our team will be happy to assist you.
Children deserve healthy, problem-free smiles that allow them to go about the important business of being a kid. Unfortunately, too many children get slowed down because of dental problems that might have been avoided with proper preventive care.
Your job is to show them how to brush and how to develop a routine of healthy oral hygiene habits. Our job at Sabino Hills Family Dentistry is to provide the preventive services like routine cleanings and exams that support your at-home efforts.

There are other practical treatments like fluoride applications that will also help keep your child’s teeth strong and healthy. Dental sealants are another weapon we have against cavities because they seal out food debris and harmful bacteria that collect on tooth surfaces. This is especially true of permanent teeth like molars and premolars that have deep crevices that are difficult to clean thoroughly.
Application of sealants is a simple process and does not require any drilling or anesthesia and can usually be completed during your child’s cleaning appointment. At our Tanque Verde, AZ office, our children’s dentistry services include fluoride and sealant applications. Please call us to arrange an appointment to learn more.

Getting your child started on a lifetime of good oral health care habits is one of the best things we can do for them.
Your Child's First Dental Visit
The goal of the first visit is for us to meet them and let them see that going to the dentist is fun. We’ll give them a ride in the chair, count their teeth, and show them how to brush. Using panoramic x-rays (no film), we’ll take pictures to get a baseline for future treatment.
We understand how important it is that we gradually get your child used to being around us in the office environment. Our professional team takes all the time necessary to treat your children with the special attention they need to help them feel safe and secure.
