Family dental care near Clarkston MI addresses the needs of your entire family

Making sure that every member of the family receives the dental care they need can be a challenge in today's society. At Metropolitan Dental Center, we make it as easy as possible for you to obtain the kind of care your family deserves in one place. We offer family dental care in our office near Clarkston, MI for the prevention and restoration of dental problems, as well as cosmetic treatments to enhance smiles beautifully for people of all ages.


Oral care is important from the very first days of life. After an infant is fed, residual sugars may remain, creating an ideal environment for oral bacteria. Before teeth have erupted, parents can cleanse their baby's mouth using a soft, moist cloth, gently wiping the gums and cheeks after feeding. Once the first teeth erupt, soft brushing and regular dental visits should take place to prevent cavities.


Baby teeth eventually fall out naturally. This does not mean they are not important to future oral health. A child's primary teeth hold space in the mouth for permanent teeth. As such, we want them to remain healthy for the duration of their lifespan. Cavities are painful inconveniences that we want to help your child avoid.


At Metropolitan Dental Center, we help school-aged children learn and master hygiene skills that will keep their teeth and gums healthy for many years. The habits that children learn early can set them up for a lifetime of benefits. Our staff makes dental visits productive, educational, and fun for children of all ages.


During the teen years, teeth can take a real beating. Teens are notorious for consuming sugary foods and beverages. Today, energy and sports drinks pose an entirely new problem due to their high level of acidity. Busy teens may also put little effort into brushing and flossing teeth daily, as they should. The inconsistencies of this time in life can make teens especially vulnerable to dental problems like cavities and soft tissue irritation. Our team helps teens avoid dental problems through education and demonstration as needed.


Adults are just as susceptible as children to cavities. An additional problem that we closely monitor is gum disease, which affects a high percentage of American adults. With preventive dental care at Metropolitan Dental Center, adult patients can address dental problems quickly, and can enhance their smiles with cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening or veneers.


Seniors face specific risks due to the natural changes that occur with age. We attend to our patients' needs with specific understanding of challenges like dry mouth or loss of dexterity that makes brushing and flossing difficult.

Whatever dental needs your family has, we can meet them. Contact Metropolitan Dental Center for your visit today.
