Following this initial visit, it's important for children to visit the dentist biannually for routine cleanings and checkups. Our goal is to create a welcoming and enjoyable experience for your child at our Niceville, FL practice, fostering a lifelong positive view of dental care. During their visits, Dr. Leah Gagnon will monitor their dental development, identify any potential issues, and provide guidance on effective oral hygiene practices for home care.

Many problems can be addressed at your child's dental visit. Typically, their visit will consist of a dental examination and a cleaning. Following their cleaning, a treatment of fluoride might be performed in order to strengthen the teeth and enamel while they are developing. In addition, dental sealants are often suggested to minimize tooth decay and cavities. Dr. Gagnon may also address teeth that have signs of decay or are damaged, chipped, or broken by making a successful treatment plan. As your child gets older, Dr. Gagnon might suggest orthodontics to align their teeth, which may avoid future dental problems.

Dr. Gagnon is a wonderful and patient dentist. My son broke his front tooth over the weekend. I left a message at the office over the weekend. Her receptionist Renee was able to get us in promptly Monday morning. My son is very anxious, but Dr. Gagnon and her assistant were so patient and professional with him. I highly recommend Dr. Gagnon and staff for all their professional services.

Dr. Gagnon and her entire team have been wonderful to our family. The office boasts professionalism, care & kindness and they have always been extremely accommodating to our needs and the needs of our small children (ages 2 & 3). Recently, our 3yr old had to have a tooth extracted (a result from an unfortunate playground accident) and we were so pleased with the care our child received... in fact, our child keeps asking when we get to go back to the dentist! Dr Gagnon & her team have exceeded our expectations and we recommend her to all!
