Laying The Foundation For A Lifetime Of Smiles

Taking care of tiny teeth can feel like a bit of a mystery, especially when it comes to finding the right dentist to turn those dental visits into triumphs, not tantrums. That's where Sweet Tooth Family Dentistry comes in to save the day as your trusted kids dentist in Clovis, CA! We understand that a child’s dental experience should be anything but scary. That's why we've created a fun, welcoming space and built a team overflowing with gentle expertise to chase away those dental jitters and keep those little smiles shining bright.

Issues Our Super Dentists Tackle

Our friendly children’s dentists are trained to handle a whole range of dental issues your little one might encounter, including:

  • Early Cavities: Sugary treats are yummy, but they can also lead to cavities. We'll help prevent and treat these tiny troublemakers to keep your child's smile healthy.
  • Teething Troubles: Teething can be a rough ride for little ones. We can offer guidance and support to soothe sore gums and make this milestone a little less bumpy.
  • Mouth Development: A growing mouth can sometimes lead to misaligned teeth. We'll monitor your child's development and recommend early intervention if needed.
  • Dental Injuries: Playground mishaps happen! We're here to address chipped teeth, knocked-out teeth, or any other dental emergencies your kiddos might face.

Our Pediatric Dentistry Services

We believe in making dental visits a fun experience, not an ordeal. Here's a peek at what we can do for your child:

Dental Exams & Cleanings 

It is recommended that your child comes in to see Dr. Nish or Dr. Mahek every 6 months for a check-up so we can keep any problems at bay. Our friendly dentist will gently examine your child’s teeth and gums, looking for any signs of cavities or other concerns. We’ll then end off with a cleaning to remove plaque and tartar for a sparkling clean smile.

Fluoride Treatments 

Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel by making it harder for cavities to form. The treatment is applied as a tasty gel or paste to strengthen tiny teeth from the inside out.

Dental Sealants

Back molars have tiny grooves that can be tricky to clean. Dental sealants act like a shield, painting a protective coating over the chewing surfaces of these teeth to prevent cavities.

Dental X-Rays

Sometimes, cavities or other dental issues can hide between teeth, invisible to the naked eye. Dental X-rays can give our kids dentist a clear picture of what's happening beneath the surface. We only use digital X-rays, which emit minimal radiation.


If a cavity does develop, we can effectively fix it with a dental filling. We use white fillings that blend seamlessly with your child's natural tooth color, restoring the tooth's health and function.

Early Orthodontics 

Sometimes, a child's jaw or teeth may not be growing quite right. Early orthodontics, like interceptive appliances, can gently guide teeth into their proper positions, preventing the need for more extensive orthodontic treatment later.


Does your little adventurer love sports? A mouthguard will protect their teeth from injuries during playtime. We offer custom-fitted mouthguards for a comfortable and secure fit.

Your Child's First Appointment

We understand that a first dental visit can feel like a giant leap for both you and your child. Here's a roadmap to what you can expect:

  • Meet and Greet: We'll start with a tour of our office, allowing your child to get comfortable with the surroundings.
  • Gentle Exam: Our dentist will perform a thorough yet gentle examination of your child's teeth and gums.
  • Cleaning: Our hygienists will clean your child's teeth in a fun and interactive way, teaching them proper brushing techniques along the way.
  • Treasure Time! After the appointment, your child will be rewarded for their bravery with a special prize!
