Qualified Pediatric Dentist
At Machen Family Dentistry in Idaho Falls, ID we strive to make your child’s experience at the dentist positive, fun, friendly, and to let them know how special they are. Dr. Machen was invited onto the Honors program in pediatric dentistry and completed advanced studies in pediatric dentistry. She received the certificate of Merit from the American Academy of Pediatric dentistry and knows the importance of your child’s oral health care and making them feel comfortable coming to the dentist.
First Visit to the Dentist
Your child’s first visit is their “Fun Visit” this is when we take the opportunity to introduce the different instruments, such as “Mr. Thirsty” and to get them familiar with the operatory room. This allows them to explore and learn about what Dr. Machen does during a visit.
Preventative Health Care
We focus on preventative oral health care for your child. Healthy baby teeth are fundamental to a child’s overall health and development. Dr. Machen will counsel with the parents and advise them on how to assist their children to create healthy oral habits that will last them a life time. We also teach your children how to care for their own teeth and the importance of oral hygiene.
