One of the most important things in life is family. At Charles F. Betts, Jr., D.M.D. Family Dentistry in Decatur, AL, we understand the importance of family and consider it a privilege that you would trust us with the care of those you hold most dear. Let our team help keep your loved ones happy and healthy with our family dentistry services in Decatur, AL.
As a family dentist, Dr. Betts treats people of all ages. We see young children, adolescents, teens, and adults.
Helping the younger members of your family build good dental habits, and then helping them keep those habits while they grow up, is one of the greatest benefits of treating your whole family. Dr. Betts has Hands-On Learning Labs™ for your children to learn all kinds of fun things about good dental health.
Dr. Betts recommends that you schedule your child’s first dental appointment between the ages of 2 and 4. By that time they should be able to sit in a dentist chair and participate in their dental treatment with Dr. Betts in Decatur, AL as needed. Before you schedule this appointment, however, we do suggest that you bring your child with you to your appointment before their own appointment. This helps to get them comfortable with the staff and Dr. Betts. That good feeling is very important in helping your child not fear their dental visits. The last thing we want is for your child to develop dental anxiety, so we do all we can to make them comfortable and happy during their time with us.
A Hands-On Learning Lab allows your child to get a firsthand look at what it takes to have a healthy mouth. This is a really fun event for the kids as they get to dress in white coats and work hand in hand with one of our dental hygienists. Your child will learn how to properly floss, brush, and maintain their oral health in a way that will keep them engaged and focused. Dr. Betts loves these events because he finds that it is one of the most effective teaching tools for children we treat.
