Portrait of three generation family with perfect smiles.

One of the best things you can do for your family is help them keep their smiles healthy and bright. From the smallest member with that first tiny tooth to elderly family members, oral health is critical for general health and well-being. At every stage of life, dental care contributes to your quality of life. Believe it or not, even individuals who have no teeth benefit from regular checkups for oral health.

From the Beginning

Parents celebrate when they see the first tooth erupt in their baby’s mouth. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that oral care begin at this time or at least by the first birthday. There are several reasons for this. It is smart to start building a firm foundation for life-long oral health as early as possible. When your little one gets used to going to checkups and the dental office early in life, it lessens the chance of dental fears.

In addition, your family dentist will have the opportunity to help you help your child maintain optimal oral health. The dentist can also monitor the development of the teeth and jaws so that detection of potential issues can be identified early. In some cases, early intervention can reduce the need for more drastic measures for correction later.

Older Kids and Teens

As kids get older, you expect them to maintain their own healthy oral hygiene routines. Unfortunately, busy schedules, raging hormones and other issues may interfere with optimal dental care. Keeping up with regular checkups is very important to ensure that cavities and gum disease have a minimal chance of developing. Also, during this stage, orthodontic treatment may be suggested for misaligned or crooked teeth.


Oral health care continues to be important through adulthood. It can also seem elusive as busy schedules get in the way of regular dental checkups. Putting off your visits can increase the chances of serious problems developing, which can be painful and expensive. Making your oral health a priority will keep your smile healthy and bright and that can make a big difference in your quality of life.

Dental Care for the Elderly

For many Americans, by the time they reach the age of 60, several teeth have been lost due to various reasons. Elderly people most often lose their teeth to severe gum disease. Regular trips to the dentist can minimize this problem. When teeth are missing, it is important to replace them, not just for oral health but for general health as well.

No matter your age, keeping up with your dental care will help ensure a healthier, happier life. The dental professionals at Engineered Smiles are devoted to keeping smiles bright and healthy at all stages. Call us today to schedule appointments for your family members.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
