Thank you for giving us the privilege of taking care of your child’s groovy molars, and starting him or her off to years of excellent dental care and a lifetime of smiles!

The molar, as a result of being our primary chewing teeth, is the gateway to our overall oral health.  Through years of research and studies, it is well known oral health plays a crucial role in our overall general health and well-being.   These teeth must be well cared for by brushing and flossing regularly!
Now, don’t let all the hype behind the molars allow you to forget about the other 12 or 20 (depending on your age) great teeth!
In fact, it is not uncommon to see children as young as 2-3 years old develop decay on their front teeth (incisors), most often related to nighttime nursing habits, milk at night, or sugary beverage intake such as juice.

In these situations, Dr. Singleton is able to restore your child’s front teeth to their natural life-like appearance utilizing his experience and latest techniques to create and maintain a beautiful and self-confident smile.
