A Dental Practice For the Whole Family

NorthStar Dental offers dentistry for the entire family. Did you know a child’s first dental visit should be when their first teeth come in (between 6 and 9 months old)? As dental professionals, we demonstrate tricks and tips and provide information to you and your children about how to maintain oral health. We believe the dentist can and should be a welcoming and fun place for families to come and learn about their teeth and how to keep them healthy. As parents ourselves, we value the trust you place in us, and treat every child as we would our own. By seeing a family dentist at this young age, your child is building a relationship that they can keep through their teenage years and even into adulthood. It also gives us the opportunity to focus on education and prevention, decreasing the risk for cavities or toothaches.
