Establishing good dental health routines, including twice yearly visits to the dentist for preventive care, early on can lay the foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles!
At Van Gurp Dentistry in Charlotte, Dr. Richard Van Gurp offers the convenience of family dentistry in his dental office conveniently located at the Arboretum. Dr. Van Gurp has over 25 years of experience in general and cosmetic dentistry and offers families a wide variety of dental treatments to maintain and support oral health.
Van Gurp Dentistry offers a warm and inviting office environment where children are always welcome and the gentle, caring staff make every effort to ease any anxiety they may have and ensure their comfort during dental procedures. Preventive care visits allow Dr. Van Gurp and his staff to screen for cavities, signs of decay and any changes to the teeth that may indicate a potential problem. Catching dental health problems early is important for maintaining optimal oral health. Early treatment is usually more conservative and helpful in preventing future problems from developing!
Children are as susceptible to cavities as adults and Dr. Van Gurp performs a thorough diagnostic exam, including the use of laser cavity detection with Diagnodent, digital x-rays and an evaluation of the entire occlusal system.
Busy parents and caregivers appreciate the convenience of having all members of the family treated in the same office and children enjoy the benefit of visiting the dentist alongside their parent- this can help to reduce anxiety.
In addition to the variety of dental services available at his Charlotte dental office, Dr. Van Gurp also offers dental sealants for his young patients. Sealants offer a barrier of protection against decay for children and will last for years after being placed on the tooth. Dr. Van Gurp may recommend additional fluoride treatments for pediatric patients: these treatments can help to strengthen tooth enamel and repair tissue damaged by decay.
