Your safety is our concern
The FDA has advised ‘vulnerable’ groups - pregnant and lactating women; women trying to conceive; fetuses, infants and younger kids; those with neurological or kidney issues; and those allergic to mercury – to avoid dental amalgam. We take this advice very seriously. That’s why we consider mercury-free smiles as a priority!

Pediatric Dentistry Services in Yadkinville NC

Pediatric dental care is a particular type of dentistry. Working with children as young as six months old requires a lot of compassion and patience. Toddlers do not understand what you are doing with your instruments stuck in their tiny mouths, and they can become frightened very quickly. If your toddler or young child needs dental care, do an internet search for Pediatric Dentistry Services Yadkinville, NC, and you will find Virtue Dental Care.

Holistic Pediatric Dental Care

Dr. Taylor at Virtue Dental Care practices holistic pediatric dental care and provides pediatric dentistry services in Yadkinville, NC, at the same place. We believe that mercury is toxic and will not use it on our patients. Mercury is the most commonly used substance for fillings, and it has proven to cause more harm than good. Scientists have been studying the consequences of mercury fillings for a few decades now. More dentists, pediatrics, and adults advise against mercury fillings.

Pediatric Dental Procedures

Pediatric patients have pretty much the same dental procedures as adults. Parents are encouraged to start yearly exams at one year of age so your doctor can monitor the children’s dental health and allow the child to become comfortable at the dentist.
