"As a dentist, I sought out the best for my kids - and that was Dr. Wingate. She is not only kind, fun, and patient, but is a VERY skilled clinician. My kids loved her office. Even when my oldest needed to have some work done, she made it such an easy and positive experience for him. You cannot go wrong entrusting your child’s care to Dr. Wingate."

"Highly recommend Dr. Wingate! We took my son to see her for his first visit when he was 18 months. He was uncooperative and very nervous, but dr. Jackie and her team took the time to talk him through it and make him feel comfortable. By his second visit at 2, she worked her magic and was able to do a full cleaning, exam, and fluoride with no tears!!! Dr. Wingate and her team really make the dental experience SO fun for all kids! You won’t be disappointed!"

"Can’t say enough good things about this place! We were able to quickly and efficiently get an appointment scheduled, and the staff was so helpful in assisting us with figuring out our dental insurance coverage and answering any questions we had regarding that. Dr. Jackie was incredibly knowledgeable and so thorough in explaining not only to the parents what was going on but also so amazing at explaining everything to the kids. She and her staff have incredible bedside manners and so much patience with children. We are so thankful we found Dr. Jackie and her staff!"

First Dental Visit

  • We cannot wait to meet you and provide you with a Groovy dental experience.
    • First visit by age 1
      • The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that “a child should visit the dentist within six months of the eruption of the first tooth or by age one”
  • Preparing for the first visit
    • We are paperless! Once you have scheduled your visit, please go to our patient portal to fill out all forms prior to your visit.
    • Bring dental and medical insurance cards with you to your appointment.
    • If transferring from another dental practice, please get us your prior dental records at least 24 hours before the scheduled appointment.
      • This will allow us adequate time to review prior x-rays and charting.
      • This will require your approval and participation.
      • We invest in our patients and families and want to make sure we know your complete history.
    • We encourage you to make visiting the dentist an adventure!
    • At home, please avoid phrases such as “it is not going to hurt,” “you will not get a shot,” etc.
      • Research shows that sometimes these phrases may create stress prior to appointments and may cause unnecessary apprehension.
        Dr. Jackie and her team will do everything they can to create a warm, welcoming environment for your child, but it needs to be a unified effort. As the parent, YOU play a vital role in helping shape your child’s positive perception of their dentist!
    • Schedule during a time that will work with your child’s schedule
    • For young children (4 years or younger), it is HIGHLY recommended that the visit take place in the morning time.
    • Children are more rested and more cooperative as opposed to during their nap time or after daycare or school. We have seen this make a huge difference in your child’s ability to cooperate.
    • We are happy to provide excuse forms for work and school to accommodate this schedule.
    • Upon entering the office, you will receive a friendly greeting and one of our specialized dental assistants will walk you and your child to their dental chair and introduce the child to the dental equipment. We will begin by gaining and establishing trust with your child using behavior management strategies. After a rapport is established with your child, we will lay your child back and clean your child’s teeth, and take x-rays if needed.
    • Dr. Jackie will then meet the child and the parent to perform a thorough examination. We invest in our patients and our relationships and will spend plenty of time with you and your child reviewing the cavity process, diet, hygiene, thumb-sucking and pacifier use (if necessary), fluoride exposure, and much more! We will also review if we found any cavities, review all available treatment options, and craft a unique tailored treatment plan for your child.
    • We understand your family has a busy schedule, so when you’re preparing for a dental visit, please remember an appointment can last between 40-60 minutes.
    • Early examination and preventive care will protect your child’s smile now and in the future.

Infant Care Guide

Congratulations on the arrival of your baby! Are you prepared for the arrival of your baby’s first tooth? Follow these guidelines and your child will be on the way to a lifetime of healthy smiles!

  • Caring for Gums - Even before your baby’s first tooth appears, the gums can benefit from your careful attention. After breast- or bottle-feeding, wrap one finger with a clean, damp washcloth or piece of gauze and gently rub it across your baby’s gum tissue. This practice both clears your little one’s mouth of any fragments of food and begins the process for building good daily oral care habits.
  • Baby’s First Tooth (~ 6 months of age) - When that first tooth makes an entrance, it’s time to upgrade to a baby toothbrush.
  • At this stage, toothpaste isn’t necessary; just dip the brush in water before brushing. If your little one doesn’t react well to the introduction of a toothbrush, don’t give up. During the teething process, your child will want to chew on just about anything, and a baby toothbrush with a teether can become a favorite toy during this period.
  • Brushing with Toothpaste - When molars start to erupt, you can start using toothpaste with your child’s brush. At this stage, use only a tiny amount of fluoridated toothpaste (the size of a grain of rice). From the beginning, have your little one practice spitting the toothpaste out after brushing, which should not be swallowed at any age.
  • Avoiding Cavities
    • Sugared Beverages and Sticky Carbohydrates are the leading cause of cavities that we see in the office.
    • Sweetened liquids to limit or brush after consuming:
      • Fruit juice
      • Gatorade
      • Flavored waters
      • Milk (including dairy alternatives)
    • Sticky Carbohydrates to limit or brush after consuming:
      • Crackers
      • Chips
      • Goldfish
      • Pretzels
      • Raisins/dried fruits
      • Pasta

Setting a Good Example

  • Behavior modeling is a great way to teach our littles. Brush and floss daily while your child is watching, and he or she will learn at an early age the importance of your good habits.
  • As soon as your child shows interest, offer a toothbrush of his or her own and encourage your toddler to “brush” with you. (You’ll find toothbrushes with chunky, short handles that are easy to grip.)
  • Most children don’t have the dexterity necessary to thoroughly clean their own teeth until they’re about six or seven, so you’ll have to do that part of the job.
  • Try different tactics to make brushing fun: flavored toothpaste, a toothbrush with a favorite character on it, or singing songs about brushing.
  • The primary goal is to instill healthy oral habits at an early age to set your child up for a lifetime of healthy, cavity-free teeth!
