Children’s Dentistry in Putnam, CT

Keep even the smallest members of your family healthy with children’s dentistry care!

Do you value the level of health care that your child receives? Believe it or not, your child’s dental care is an important aspect of their health! You should trust the wellbeing of your son or daughter with respected dental professionals who provide the same level of care regardless of a patient’s age. For the needs of everyone in your household, turn to Drs. Carolyn and Walter McGinn!

During a child's dental exam, we’ll gently explain what will happen during the appointment and why it’s necessary for us to do it. We understand the importance of helping your child feel safe so as to prevent them from becoming afraid of the dentist later in life. We’ll also invite them to ask any dental questions they have. Taking extra steps to help your child understand dental care makes them part of their "care team".

We’ll check for any signs of decay during the child's appointment. Then, a registered dental hygienist will perform a gentle cleaning to remove any plaque or tartar from your child’s smile and explain the importance of dental care, as well as how to brush and floss well.

Please contact us today to schedule an appointment for your son or daughter. Drs. Carolyn and Walter McGinn regularly see patient from Putnam, Thompson, Danielson, Killingly, Woodstock, and other Connecticut towns for children’s dental care. If this will be your child’s initial appointment or the first time that they are receiving care from our office, please take a moment to review the information on our new patient page. We’re excited to begin helping your little one start their journey to optimal oral health!
