Dentists are doctors who want to keep your mouth and teeth healthy. Just like you go to the doctor for check-ups to make sure your body is strong and growing, your Doctor wants to make sure your teeth are clean and in good health.
Does going to the dentist hurt?
Going to the dentist is fun! When you come to your Doctor’s office, you will get to lie down in a comfortable chair while she cleans your teeth and makes sure they are healthy. She and her staff will do everything possible to make sure that your visit is not painful.

What is a cavity?
Cavities are injured teeth that have suffered decay. Eating lots of sweets and not brushing/flossing regularly can cause cavities to occur. When you have a cavity, your Doctor will have to fix the tooth to make it healthy again.
