Working with Children
Dr. Thomas Barton is pleased to offer dental services for families in and around Kansas City. In addition to cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry treatments, Dr. Barton offers family dental services to address the needs of everyone in your family, starting as early as the age of 2.
Familiarizing your child with the dentist is important for a number of reasons. Regular visits for dental examinations and teeth cleanings are an ideal way to combat unnecessary fears of the dentist as your child ages. In addition, dental visits during your children’s formative years will be helpful in educating them on proper oral hygiene practices, ensuring optimal oral health for years to come.
We strive to provide a comfortable and welcoming environment for children. Our waiting room is filled with toys and books to help your children feel comfortable from the moment they walk in. Bree, Dr. Barton’s assistant, came to our practice from a pediatric dentist’s office. She works directly with our younger patients, applying her years of experience to ensure a fun and enjoyable experience for your child. At the end of every dental treatment for your child, a prize is given as a reward.
Our goal is to offer a one-stop-shop for all of your family’s dental needs, helping you balance the demands of your family’s schedule. Dr. Barton is experienced at working with children, but knows when a problem demands the attention of a specialist. He works closely with local pediatric dentists to whom he can refer children with special or complex needs.
Understanding the demands modern families face, Dr. Barton offers extended office hours on Tuesdays. By keeping the office open until 6, we hope to accommodate more families, and ease the stress that can be associated with routine office visits. While Dr. Barton does not like to double-book patients, he will work with your family to ensure everyone’s needs are met in as few office visits as possible.
