Dr. Ellsworth Talks About Family Dentistry Read Transcript

At Family Dental of Spokane Valley, we enjoy working with people of all ages, especially young patients. That’s why we offer family dentistry service for you and your family. Spokane Valley, WA dentist Dr. Craig Ellsworth has six children, and several members of his dental team are mothers and grandmothers. So they are not fazed by your child’s out-of-left-field questions or even a tear or two.

Our team enjoys educating your kids about good dental hygiene, whether it is demonstrating proper tooth brushing techniques or talking about how too much sugar isn’t good for their teeth.

And our Spokane Valley, WA dentist office is located on North Mullan Road near several schools, so it is easy to schedule dental appointments around school activities. We also offer extended hours, so your family members can come in before school or work starts. Your child may not mind missing class, but we know you would rather they didn’t!

Call Family Dental of Spokane Valley at 509-850-3217 to schedule appointments for a family dentistry service.

Dental Sealants and Fluoride Varnish Protect Your Child’s Teeth

Your child’s dental exam can include two treatments designed to give them an extra edge in the battle against decay. Both treatments are simply brushed onto their teeth, so there is no discomfort. They can help cavity-prone adults as well.

  • We can apply a fluoride varnish to help prevent cavities. The varnish goes on sticky but quickly dries.
  • We can also apply thin plastic coatings on your child’s back teeth that help protect them from dental decay. Dr. Craig Ellsworth brushes on the clear sealants, then uses a special light to “cure” them.

Kid-Friendly Technology

In our Spokane Valley, WA dentist office, we use dental technology that will wow your children with its “cool” factor. Two tools that will impress them and give them something to tell their friends about:

  • Intraoral camera. When Dr. Craig Ellsworth uses this handheld camera, your child will get an up-close look at their mouth.
  • Digital X-ray machine. Your child will get another good look at their mouth with our machine that produces an instant and detailed image.
