Our General and Pediatric Dentists Serving the New River Valley

Not only does the Kool Smiles team include fully licensed general dentists, but we also have a pediatric dentist (or pedodontist) who has additional training in dental care for children. Each provider is approved by the Virginia Board of Dentistry and receives in-house training from Kool Smiles staff.

In addition to providing high-quality dental care to your children, Kool Smiles offers oral health education to the Christiansburg community. Through events like Sharing Smiles Day and Operation Troop Treats and partnerships with local organizations, our providers teach children how to take care of their teeth at a young age. Early education and good oral hygiene habits are the first steps to healthy smiles for life.

What Can You Expect from Some Regular Dental Treatments?

At Kool Smiles, we pride ourselves in making the dental experience welcoming and accessible, even for your kids. Many of our dentists will walk you and your child through the steps of each procedure to help you both feel more comfortable throughout the process.

One of the most common procedures that you’ll receive at a dentist’s office is a teeth cleaning. Now, cleanings are typically performed by dental hygienists not the general dentist. Because teeth cleanings are so common, it’s great to get accustomed to the process before you even come in.

Professional teeth cleaning includes the following steps:

  • Before your child’s teeth cleaning starts, the dental hygienist will conduct a physical examination of their mouth to check the teeth and gums and note potential issues, like gingivitis.
  • After the physical examination, the hygienist will use a scaler along the gum line and teeth to rid them of existing plaque and tartar buildup.
  • When this step is done, they’ll use an electric brush to brush your child’s teeth. This tool makes a buzzing sound, but that just means it’s working correctly. The tool is used to get rid of additional tartar left behind from the scaler. Don’t worry, we’ll let your child know all this beforehand, so there won’t be any surprises!
  • After this, the hygienist will most likely perform a professional flossing to get rid of any remaining plaque and tartar.
  • Here, they’re almost done. The next step is a simple rinsing to flush out any plaque still in their mouth.
  • Finally, the last step of the process usually involves a fluoride treatment to help protect your child’s teeth from future cavities.
