Teen Dentistry

World of Smiles is growing up with the addition of a dedicated teen clinic!  The new office will be located in Suite 220, just across the hall from our West side location, allowing parents to continue scheduling their teens with younger siblings at the same time.

 

This transitional practice will focus on preventative care for teens and young adults including regular cleanings, exams,  x-rays, and sealants. The office will continue to offer nutritional counseling as well as acting as a resource on the dangers of tobacco and marijuana use and other teen issues. In addition to basic care and hygiene, the clinic will treat small fillings, and provide some extractions. Concerns like root canals, aesthetic crowns, and third molar extractions will be referred to a trusted provider. Only once their dental needs regularly exceed our scope will it prove necessary to find those young adults a new dental home with a true adult dentist.

Dr. Stafford will be seeing patients at the new clinic on Fridays, and we are hoping to announce the addition of an all star dentist for the office very soon!

Opening in December 2017. Teens can begin scheduling now by calling (503) 626-9700.
