Dentistry From The Heart

030315-DFTH-Flyer-3If dental care for your children is not an option because of the cost, please consider attending the Dentistry From The Heart event on April 17 at Quest Pediatric Dentistry. Dr. Troy Miller will be here as well as other dentists providing free dental work for children. This program is being brought to Lafayette for the first time ever, to bring smiles to those in need. Arrive early, dress for the weather and bring chairs and snacks to occupy yourself while you wait to be seen. Children between the ages of 0 and 10 will receive one treatment; either a cleaning, a filling, an extraction or sealants. Everything is on a first come, first served basis, and we hope to have a fun, safe day, with visits from other special event providers making the wait more bearable. Join us for a day of free dental care, which is possible through the support of the community during Dr. Miller’s  years in service. This is our first, and Quest Pediatric Dentistry hopes to provide this service to Lafayette on an annual basis.

How Quest Got Its Name

Dr. Troy Miller began his pediatric dental practice more than 10 years ago in Lafayette, opening his office under his name and title, “S. Troy Miller, DDS.”
In order to plan for future growth of the practice, Dr. Miller decided in 2009 to change the practice name to Quest Pediatric Dentistry.
A Quest is defined as a journey made in search of something significant. To Dr. Miller and his staff, no quest could be more important than to grow up with a healthy, lifetime smile.
With the name Quest Pediatric Dentistry, parents looking for a children’s dentist can identify right away with the specialized care at Quest.
Our dentists are Pediatric Specialists, providing the correct dental care for children, from birth to age 18. The Quest sailing ship logo is a clue to our office’s pirate theme, complete with a ship, mermaid and treasure chest.
We are a hard-working crew, and it is our pleasure to make visiting the dentist fun for our youngest patients.

Return To Routine

Young people are comforted by routine. During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, return to the routine of brushing teeth before bed. Perhaps your family will have events scheduled past a young person’s normal bed time? Explain that brushing their teeth is too important to miss. Have the family brush together before going on to the next activity. Set a routine of brushing that never changes so your little one knows exactly what to expect at the end of the day. They can expect a happy visit to the dentist and that pleases everyone. See you in 2015!
