Family Dentistry In Columbia, TN

Juggling the schedules of everyone in your family can be daunting, but with Columbia Dental Group, at least one thing on your to-do list is simple. Dr. Sarah Clayton welcomes patients who are 3 and older, so the whole family can obtain quality, comprehensive dental treatment under one roof and even all in one day.

Gentle Dentistry for Children

Teaching children about the importance of good oral hygiene lays the foundation for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. Unfortunately, many children fear the dentist from an early age and go on to develop dental phobias that contribute to bad oral health in adulthood. Dr. Clayton, your family dentist in Columbia, TN enjoys the challenge of winning over your children by treating them with gentle care and making every visit fun. We are passionate about educating children and their parents about how to brush and floss as well as what types of foods and drinks can help prevent cavities.

Dr. Clayton also stresses the importance of dental checkups every six months so that she can provide preventive treatments, like dental sealants and fluoride, in a timely manner. After a good visit and a stop at our sticker station, your little ones will be excited about their next dental checkup at our office.

Adult Dental Care

At Columbia Dental Group, we don’t just cater to the needs of children. We understand that many adults feel uneasy about seeing the dentist, and that is why we keep your comfort in mind at all times. From our lobby refreshment stand to the pillows and blankets we offer during treatments, we want you to feel as if you’re visiting a trusted friend. Dr. Clayton is never too busy to sit with you and address all of your questions and concerns.

Whether you’re in for a simple checkup or a more extensive treatment such as obtaining a partial or full denture, a filling, or root canal therapy, Dr. Clayton is always concerned about your comfort during treatment. She’ll even give you a call later that day to see how you’re doing.

The Importance of Educating Patients

We believe that possessing the right knowledge about your oral health can empower you to make good choices that will help you maintain your natural teeth for life. These good choices include maintaining a healthy diet, that not only protects your tooth enamel from acid erosion, but also keeps your immune system strong to ensure healthy gum tissues. Keeping your gums in good shape also requires avoiding cigarettes and other tobacco products.

The mouth and body are intricately connected, and once you let gum disease take hold, you’re opening yourself up to a host of serious health problems including diabetes and stroke. Gum disease is best addressed by preventing it in the first place with regular brushing, flossing and professional dental cleanings.
