If you’re looking for a warm, caring, and expert family dentist in the Spokane Valley, WA area, look no further than Dr. Craig Ellsworth of Family Dental of Spokane Valley, WA. Our dental office provides comprehensive family dentistry for patients of all ages.
We’re particularly fond of working with younger patients, and we understand that a visit to the dentist can be scary for children.

We can even take a few tears in stride!
Our Family Dentistry Services
Preventing cavities is an important aspect of providing dental care for children. At our Spokane Valley, WA dental practice, we offer dental sealants and fluoride varnish to protect your child’s teeth. Those products are great for cavity-prone adults, too.
These are thin, clear plastic coatings that protect your child’s back teeth. The back teeth are prone to decay due the difficulty in brushing them thoroughly. Dr. Ellsworth will apply the clear sealants and then use a special light to cure them.
This product can help protect all of your child’s teeth against decay. The fluoride varnish is sticky when first applied, but it dries very quickly.
We can add both treatments during your child’s dental exam. The process is completely painless and quite quick – an important consideration when kids are in the dental chair.
It seems that children today are all about technology. On that score, family dentists are cooler than ever before. In our Spokane Valley, WA dentist office, we use dental technology that will deliver significant “wow factor” for your children. They’ll be telling their friends about two tools that impressed them:
- Our handheld Intraoral camera: Dr. Craig Ellsworth uses this handheld camera to examine every inch of your child’s mouth, live and in color. Your child will get an up-close look at their mouth – on the big screen.
- Our digital X-ray machine: What’s cooler than being able to look inside your own teeth? Our digital X-ray delivers detailed images – instantly.
We firmly believe that it’s never too early to teach people how to care for their teeth. We enjoy teaching your kids about the various aspects of good dental hygiene, from proper tooth brushing techniques to explaining the importance of limiting their sugar intake.
