We Understand Children

Children Need Special Care

Kids aren’t just little adults, which is why dentists need a different approach. Dr. Standish understands the needs of children – he’s spent years raising daughters, coaching soccer, and of course, treating children here at his Fleming Island dental office. The team at Eagle Harbor Dental is dedicated to providing quality care and making sure that your child will grow up without fear of going to the dentist, setting the foundation for a lifetime of good oral health habits.

Making Children Comfortable

child comfortable at the dentist

Frankly, you can’t provide top-quality dental care to a nervous, skittish, or terrified kid. When children are uncomfortable, they’ll fight tooth and nail (pun intended) when they hear the dreaded word “dentist.” As you can guess, this doesn’t make for a pleasant or effective visit. We’re well-versed in the fine art of making children comfortable and keeping them entertained. When all else fails, we’ve got TVs in the ceilings to entertain them while we work.

Laughing gas

We focus on treating all our little ones with patience and compassion, helping to establish trust and mitigate their worries. In extreme cases, we can administer nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, so that they can still receive the oral care they need without the extra stress.

Meeting children’s dental needs

Since children’s mouths are still developing, they have specific needs. We provide preventative care and regular services like fillings, but we also know what to look for when it comes to the development and structure issues that necessitate orthodontics.


In many cases, correcting orthodontic conditions early can save on treatment later and ensure that your child’s smile stays healthy and beautiful.

Wisdom teeth

We’re also diligent in inspecting wisdom teeth and making any needed recommendations for treatment, which we can also provide in the office. While wisdom teeth get a bad rap, they don’t always have to be removed. If we recommend removal, we’ll run you and your teenager through the options. If we think they don’t need to be removed, we can help keep wisdom teeth healthy and problem-free.

Building good habits for life

Developing good daily oral care habits like brushing and flossing will inevitably have a huge impact on your child’s development. That’s why we place utmost importance on helping to educate children – and parents – on proper daily care routines. This way, they’re set up for a lifetime of pearly whites, confident smiles, and as little time in a dentist’s chair as possible. We’d say that’s a success for everyone.

How it works

Book an Appointment

Come by for a visit to see if we’re the right fit for you and your child.


The First Appointment

We recommend booking your child’s first appointment either when their first tooth comes in or by their first birthday. We’ll discuss with you what will happen in each appointment and what you should be doing to keep your child’s teeth healthy and clean at home. It’s important to build healthy habits from the beginning to protect your child’s future oral health.


Regular Checkups

Just like adults, children need dental checkups at least every six months. We may recommend more frequent visits if there’s a problem that needs to be addressed.


Emergency Visits

Sometimes, if your child has a toothache or if an accident happened and they’ve chipped a tooth, an emergency appointment is needed. Don’t wait for the next scheduled checkup to bring them in. Some problems need to be addressed right away.


Building Lifetime Habits

It’s essential to start early with your child’s oral health. The earlier they’re used to visiting the dentist and the earlier you start to teach them to brush and floss, the better. It’s our job and the parents’ job to reinforce these good habits from a young age so children develop good habits that will last them a lifetime.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I bring my child into the dentist for the first time?

We recommend bringing your child to our office when their first tooth arrives or by their first birthday. That way, we can give them an early checkup to prevent future dental issues.

How often should I bring my child to the dentist?

Your child should have a dental checkup every six months to ensure that there aren’t any serious issues or cavaties. However, we may recommend bringing them in more often depending on the state of their oral health.

When should my child start using toothpaste?

Your child can use a fluoride toothpaste at around the age of three. Up until then, we recommend softly brushing their teeth with water and a soft-bristled brush.

Are baby teeth actually important to my child?

Yes, your child’s first set of teeth plays an important role in their oral health. They not only help them learn how to speak clearly and chew naturally, but they also form the pathways that their permanent teeth will follow when they come in.

What do I do when my child has a toothache?

If your child has a toothache, rinse out their mouth with warm salt water and visit our office as soon as possible so we can help them start feeling better.
