Taking your children to the dentist is both important and necessary. In fact, you should take your child to their first dental appointment within six months of their first tooth erupting! However, we understand it can be difficult to convince your child to maintain their oral health if they’re afraid to come to the dentist. At Rock Ridge Family Dentistry, we proudly provide a cozy environment for younger patients. Here are just a few of the ways we make dental visits anxiety-free for kids!

Our Relatable Team

Our compassionate team loves children of all ages. We all know how to patiently walk through the dental examination process in a kid-friendly manner with our young patients. This can make all the difference for kiddos who just need a little bit of explanation in order to feel at ease.


We want your kids to feel right at home. They can curl up with a warm blanket and watch their favorite TV show in the treatment room, and enjoy our complimentary beverages and WiFi.

Sedation Dentistry

For patients who suffer from severe dental anxiety, we provide a sedation dentistry option called nitrous oxide, or laughing gas. Nitrous oxide provides a sense of relaxation while allowing the patient to remain awake during the appointment without any negative side effects afterward. It wears off within a few minutes so your child won’t feel groggy at all! We also offer oral conscious sedation and IV sedation for more intensive procedures.

Convenient Scheduling

Help your child feel even more at ease by scheduling dental appointments for the rest of your family on the same day. There is power in numbers! At Rock Ridge Family Dentistry, we offer convenient early-morning hours starting at 7:30 am, Monday through Thursday. We promise to check you in on time and quickly check you out to minimize the stress of arrival and departure.
