Pediatric Dentistry in Bardstown

Nothing is more important than your child’s health. Keeping your little one cavity-free and avoiding common dental health issues is the best way to ensure a carefree smile as your child grows. Routine pediatric appointments, cleanings, and exams will help you encourage proper hygiene habits at home and ensure that any dental issues are caught and addressed early. Regular visits will also get your child acquainted with dental appointments from a young age so they aren’t fearful or anxious about the dentist when they get older.

What To Expect At Your First Visit

What happens during pediatric appointments depends on the age of your child. For younger children, Dr. Walton will examine their teeth and gums, ensure that their oral development is on track, and check for cavities. Older children and teenagers will receive a gentle cleaning, and depending on what Dr. Walton sees during their exam, he may recommend x-rays to get a more thorough picture of your child’s dental health. No matter how old your child is, you can trust that they will receive friendly, compassionate care at Walton Family Dentistry and that our team will go above and beyond to make sure they enjoy their appointment.

We are a relationship-based practice, which means that we take the time to get to know you and your family so we can provide highly personalized care and an optimal dental experience.

As your local family dentist in Bardstown, Dr. Walton will enthusiastically introduce your little one to dental care and make each visit fun and informative.
