Teaching Proper Hygiene
Dental Care For Life
By establishing routine dental care, your child will be set up for a lifetime of happy, healthy, beautiful smiles. Our kind, experienced and patient team is happy to work with your child to teach proper dental care, detect cavities and address other oral conditions.
The most important part of our job with children is educating and motivating them to practice proper oral hygiene so they can avoid invasive dental procedures in the future.

How can you help?
In some cases, children are not cooperative and dentists cannot provide the necessary tasks for dental examination and care. At Story City Dental, we find that these issues often result from a child’s reaction to a stressful experience at a different office, or they are anxious about their first dental checkup.
With all young patients, our goal is to provide the most stress-free experience possible and as always Bear, our comfort dog, is here to assist. When we see your child, our goal is to establish an environment of trust and care. If cooperation continues to obstruct proper dental care, we can always refer their care to a pediatric dentist in Ames that is able to manage these little ones that need a little extra help.
