Preventive Dentistry Protects Your Family’s Dental Health
Scheduling and going to your preventive dental cleanings and checkups every six months plays an integral role in having excellent oral health. These visits allow Dr. Terveen and our team to monitor your dental health with screenings for concerns like tooth decay and gum disease and give your hygienist a chance to remove the bacteria and plaque that contribute to these problems.
Science has found that there is a close relationship between the bacteria that causes gum disease and that which causes other health concerns, such as:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Complications during pregnancy
As a trusted member of your health care team, we’re here to help you protect your overall well-being, and the best way we can help you do that is when you are consistent with your preventive care appointments.

We'll Help Maintain Your Child’s Precious Smile
When you’re a parent, there’s no smile more precious to you than your child’s. Preventive dentistry is essential for children, just like adults, and your son or daughter should also be visiting their family dentist in Colorado Springs every six months.
At Springs Family Dental, we see children of all ages. According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), your baby should visit the dentist by 12 months old or right after their first tooth comes in.
Typically, children under three can come along to their parents' appointment and receive an exam at no cost. It's essential to get your child acquainted with their Colorado Springs dentist early, so they feel calm and relaxed at each dental visit. Every successful experience they have gradually builds their confidence, so they feel good about seeing the dentist. In fact, we want your child to look forward to visiting us as a break from school or everyday life.
Let us be a part of your child’s future. Make your child’s first dental appointment today!
What to Expect during Your Child’s First Dental Visit
Each child grows at a different rate, but on average, their first tooth erupts between six and twelve months of age. We recommend that we see them in our dental office as soon as their first tooth has come in but no later than their first birthday. Good oral health starts young, and your child can begin to learn proper oral hygiene techniques early on.
Children are not born with a fear of the dentist, and our Colorado Springs dental team wants to show your child that the dentist can be a fun place to go. We believe that the sooner we see your child, the better the chances that they will not grow to fear us, resulting in better overall dental hygiene.
We make dental visits fun and stress-free; Dr. Michael Terveen and his excellent dental staff make each visit fun and educational. Our fun dental team can educate your child on proper brushing and flossing techniques, along with what good smile-friendly food is.
While baby teeth are just temporary, the way that they are treated can determine how their permanent teeth develop. Bad dental hygiene habits can be hard to break, so your child must learn how to care for their teeth early on.
Give us a call to schedule your child's first dental exam today! It is never too early to start learning about the importance of dental health; we are here to make each dental visit fun, informative, and full of joy.
