Your Children Will Love Our Dentists

Have you ever visited a dental practice that advertised its “spa-like atmosphere” and found out that was just another way of saying “kids not welcome”? That’s not the case at our Jackson, MI dentist office! Dr. Scott Watterson and the rest of our Watterson Family Dentistry team welcome patients as young as 2. We have pediatric dentistry specially designed to provide exceptional dental care for your kids.

Dr. Watterson and many members of our team are parents ourselves. So we know how to handle your children’s out-of-left-field questions or even occasional meltdowns.

For an appointment with a dentist where kids are welcomed, not just tolerated, call Watterson Family Dentistry at 517-888-0021.

Promoting Good Oral Hygiene for Life

We enjoy educating the youngest members of your family about good dental hygiene, whether it is demonstrating proper tooth brushing techniques or talking to them about how too much sugar can damage their teeth. We want your youngster to enjoy a lifelong good relationship with the dentist, and we take that responsibility seriously!

We back up our talk with treatments that keep your children’s teeth healthy. We’ll begin gentle teeth cleanings at early dental exams.

As your child gets older, we’ll introduce preventive dental care such as:

  • Applications of fluoride to help fight cavities
  • Dental sealants to prevent decay on tough-to-clean back teeth

Our Hours Make It Convenient to Schedule

We know busy families are always pressed for time! So we offer extended hours to make it easy to schedule appointments at our Jackson, MI dentist office. We open at 7 a.m. Tuesday through Friday, so you can book visits before school. In fact, early morning hours often work well for the youngest patients.

And while dental emergencies are often upsetting, that’s especially true if they involve your kids. After-hours calls to our office go to the cell phone of one of our doctors on call. So we can usually get you in right away if immediate attention is required.

Your children – and the rest of your family – are welcome anytime at Watterson Family Dentistry in Jackson, MI! Call 517-888-0021 to make an appointment with Dr. Scott Watterson, or use our convenient online form.
