Prevention and education are important in our practice, and we take seriously that you and your child need to understand how to take charge of and protect your child’s oral health. Dr. Mertes and his staff are always available to answer questions about your child’s dental needs and the services we can provide for your child’s ideal treatment.

Your child should have a comprehensive dental examination regularly, which includes a thorough examination of the teeth and gums. We use the findings from our examination to formulate a complete diagnosis and comprehensive treatment plan for your child.
Recommendations for treatment are explained at a consultation time set aside specifically for you and your child. The consultation can take place during the initial appointment. Our goal is to ensure that you receive the best possible information concerning your child’s treatment options. The time we invest in patient education enables us to deliver the best possible outcome for your child’s dental treatment.
