Creating Happy, Healthy Smiles – One Child at a Time
Dr. Andrew Guthrie and our team love gaining the trust of a little one. With kindness and patience, we help each child feel in our office. When an anxious child finishes a visit feeling proud and, with spontaneous grins and hugs tells us they can’t wait to come back, we’re thrilled!
Helping children grow up with bright smiles, and an excitement to maintain their oral health, is what we’re all about. We look forward to welcoming your young family members to our practice family, where we create lifetimes of happy, healthy smiles – one child at a time!
Our Mission at Small World Pediatric Dentistry
We welcome all children to our fun and loving atmosphere! Our specialized dental team is dedicated in educating and providing quality treatment to maintain your child’s oral health.
Our Approach to Children’s Dentistry
Dr. Guthrie and our team members are professionals. We stay current on the latest improvements in pediatric dentistry through ongoing continuing education. This keeps up-to-date on the newest technologies, techniques, and materials, and we incorporate the best into your child’s care.
We are also warm, friendly, and truly appreciate kids. We all treasure spending our days with dynamic, growing children and building relationships with families!
Kid-Friendly Environment: Our office is a non-threatening and fun space that appeals to children. From colorful murals, educational activities, and video games to rewards for no-cavity visits, prizes and balloons, and special drawings, we keep kids excited to take care of their teeth!
Even better, Dr. Guthrie and our staff are great when it comes to helping kids feel at ease. We’re often found crouched on the floor and trading jokes, talking about superheroes, or asking about a little one’s latest adventure!
Everyday Language: We pride ourselves on our ability to connect with kids on their level. That means using everyday words, a show-tell-do approach, and plenty of praise and encouragement.
Many children feel uncomfortable in an unfamiliar environment. We take time to make the new space familiar, by giving them tours, showing the tools we use, and talking them through what will happen and what they will experience. This lessens anxiety and makes kids feel safe.
Family Education: It is important for parents and children to learn about oral health, the role it plays in overall wellness, and how to maintain healthy teeth and gums. Dr. Guthrie and our team offer lots of practical education, talking about nutrition, developing good habits, and how to establish a lifetime of happy, healthy smiles!
