Innovative Biological Dentistry
At the Smile Design & Wellness Center we treat all ages. Children as young as 2 1/2 are seen. We realize the importance of a positive beginning to a patient’s dental journey. Our team members are exceptional at helping children have a positive dental experience. Although we do not provide orthodontic care for children in our practice, Dr. Edwards has 15 years of experience in treating children and adolescents with orthodontics. His extensive training in orthodontics with an emphasis on growth and development helps us to guide our young patients towards a beautiful, functional, healthy bite and appropriately timed referral to orthodontic specialists. Many of the staff at Smile Design & Wellness Center are mothers and fathers and understand the importance of a positive dental experience for our children. Of course, our many forward thinking technologies enable us to treat children in a special way. With air abrasion and lasers we are often able to treat early decay without the need for a shot of local anesthetic. The Diagnodent Laser Cavity Detector helps to assess a tooth shortly after the eruption into the mouth and determine whether or not it contains a cavity or is in need of sealing open grooves.
