Children's Dentistry

At Mark Tickle, DMD, Family, Cosmetic, and Implant Dentistry, we welcome your entire family to our Tuscaloosa, AL dental office. We have experience treating children and making their dental appointment a positive one. 

We typically welcome children who are three years old or older to our office, but if your little one has a problem before then, we are always happy to help! We will also work with you on brushing and flossing techniques for youngsters so that you can give your child the best home care possible.

When you bring your kids to our office, we will treat them gently, speak to them in a way that they can understand, and help them develop their home care skills so they can have a healthy, happy smile.

We monitor for common conditions such as decay and gum disease. We also look at the growth patterns of your little one so that we can anticipate the need for orthodontics or behavior modification. Knowing what to expect at each age is beneficial, and we will always make sure you are educated on your child’s health and any potential conditions.

Give us a call to schedule an appointment for your entire family. We value the long-term relationships we develop with the families in our community.

We gladly offer Laughing Gas to any patient who requests it. Laughing Gas is a great way to help you relax and lessen dental anxiety. You are able to drive home safely after you visit.
