Children understand the value of a healthy smile at an early age, shouting “cheese” for a barrage of photographs and status updates. For North Carolina parents searching for a Wilson family dentistry, Boles, Ham, Dixon & Boles Cosmetic Dentistry offers the expertise needed to deliver confidence and comfort to growing smiles.

The benefits of a healthy smile include more than just an admirable grin. Good oral health averts needless pain, saves money, and is essential to a child’s general health. Sadly, nearly half of children aged two to five have never visited the dentist once.

Regular dental visits are essential for your child’s oral health for many reasons, including:

  • Education: Exams give your dentist a chance to give quality dental hygiene and teeth cleaning tips.
  • Prevention: The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that almost 20% of children from the ages of five to eleven suffer from at least one untreated decayed tooth. Problems are most treatable when caught early.
  • Trust: Between 9% and 20% of Americans evade the dentist out of fear or anxiety. Regular visits with a compassionate family dentist give children confidence that will last a lifetime.

Our Wilson family dentistry understands the unique needs of young patients, and strives to offer an environment that is safe and comforting. Our family dentists proudly serve patients as young as three-years-old, and refer children with complex oral issues to a local pediatric dentist.
