To help protect your child’s dental health now and well into adulthood, it’s important to prioritize good dental hygiene at a very early age. In addition to good brushing and flossing habits, your child’s dental health depends on regular cleanings and examinations to catch minor issues before they evolve into serious problems.
We work with children of all ages and provide cleanings, exams, sealants and fluoride treatments. If your children are involved in sports, we can also fit them for custom mouth guards.
Dr. Lawhorne says, “I love my job and I am passionate about dentistry! I really believe in preventative and minimally invasive dentistry, and I will give you my best every time you are in my chair.”Education

Great team, all have had wonderful personalities and have done an amazing job with my family. I am nervous when it comes to the dentist, but I had such a great experience and they made me feel very comfortable. Feels good to find a trusted team, thank you.
Staff has always been awesome!! Our whole family goes and I don’t like to have dental work done! They make it easy, convenient and relatively painless to make and attend an appointment. The office manager always knows us when we call, the techs couldn’t be any better and Dr. Lawhorne is excellent.
