We love kidding around!

Having a dental team that loves treating kids is the best way to set your child on the path to a lifetime of sparkling oral health.

There’s a big difference between dentists who accept kids as patients and those who really enjoy making children smile. Dr. Franco and the Oaklands Dental team are excited to welcome your small friends to our sparkle squad!

At Oaklands Dental, we help you and your child with the proper maintenance and care of deciduous (baby) teeth, which are instrumental in facilitating good chewing habits, proper speech production, and also hold space for permanent teeth.

Welcome to the Sparkle Squad!

Dental phobias that begin in childhood often continue into adulthood, so making sure your children have positive first experiences at the dentist is integral to keeping your child’s oral health on track for life.

At Oaklands Dental, we welcome kids to our Sparkle Squad by providing a warm, friendly and fun environment designed to make your child feel at ease!

Dental Health For Kids

There are a number of factors that we take care of at Oaklands Dental

Education – At Oaklands Dental, we educate kids using models, computer technology, and child-friendly terminology, emphasizing the importance of keeping teeth strong and healthy. We also advise parents on disease prevention, trauma prevention, good eating habits, and other aspects of the home hygiene routine.

Growth – By continuously tracking growth and development, Dr. Girard can anticipate dental issues and quickly intervene before they worsen. Earlier corrective treatment preserves a child’s self-esteem and fosters a more positive self-image.

Prevention – Helping parents and children establish sound eating and oral care habits reduces the chances of later tooth decay. Regular check-ups and dental cleanings give the Oaklands Dental team opportunity to apply dental sealants and topical fluoride to young teeth, advise parents on improvements to home care routines, and provide good demonstrations of brushing and flossing.

Intervention – Sometimes, despite the best efforts by all, we might need to discuss the possibility of early oral treatments with parents. Dr. Girard and the Oaklands Dental team are always here to help you make the best decision for the oral health and well-being of your child!
