At DPD Smiles, we believe every child deserves to develop a healthy, beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime. That's why our mission is to provide quality pediatric dental care in a fun, friendly office environment, and why we work hard to design a personalized treatment plan for every patient in our office. But a great smile isn't just about the treatment we offer in the office – it also depends on the oral hygiene routine you and your child maintain at home. At our office, we're proud to offer a variety of dental products to help you and your child take great care of their teeth and set the stage for a lifetime of healthy smiles!

Orthodontic Mouth Guard

The Double Braces mouth guard is specifically designed to conform to upper and lower brace brackets for instant comfort and prevention from lacerations or accidents during sports. Made with 100% medical-grade silicone, it adapts to changes in mouth structure as teeth adjust during orthodontic treatment. Meets national and state high school rules requiring full coverage of upper brace brackets during wrestling competitions and is recommended for all other sports as well.


Flouride Toothpaste

Brushing is the cornerstone of any successful oral hygiene regimen – and with Clinpro toothpaste, you can multiply the effect of your child's brushing routine. Clinpro works just like regular toothpaste, but it's formulated with four times as much fluoride, providing a vital nutrient that helps to strengthen tooth enamel and reverse early white spot lesions on teeth. If your child is at risk for cavities or decay, Clinpro may be a perfect solution – just ask us if we think it's right for you.


Plaque Identifying Toothpaste

One of the hardest parts of oral hygiene is that plaque – the hardened biofilm of bacteria that causes cavities and decay – is virtually invisible on the teeth. There are chewable dye tablets to highlight plaque missed during brushing, but these are messy and irritating to use. PlaqueHD is a specially-formulated toothpaste designed to make plaque visible during normal brushing, helping you and your child see what's been missed and clean up any leftover plaque. It's a great tool for younger children who are learning to brush on their own and will help them develop a comprehensive, effective oral hygiene regimen.


Water Flosser

As a parent, it can be hard to floss your child's teeth. Often, your child's mouth is too small to really fit your fingers into, and their teeth may be too close together to comfortably fit floss between. Thankfully, Waterpik products offer a simple, effective alternative to flossing. These products shoot a pressurized jet of water or mouthwash between the teeth and around the gumline, helping to dislodge food and bacteria that brushes can't reach. It's simpler, faster, and easier than flossing, and it's a great substitute if flossing your child's teeth is too difficult. If you're interested in using Waterpik, as us which we think would be best for you. We'll help you select the perfect product and give you tips for what pressure settings to use with your child.


Night Guard

Nightly teeth grinding, or Bruxism, causes headaches, damage to teeth and jaw pain. If you have experienced these symptoms, you realize: you need a mouth guard. A good mouth guard allows you to sleep comfortable through the night, while eliminating the harmful effects of night grinding. Our recommendation is a custom fit, slim profile SOVA night Guard which is scientifically designed to relieve pain and discomfort of night grinding, leaving you freedom to breathe, talk and drink naturally. Equipped with the unique Diffusix™ Technology, Sova Night Guard distributes the pressure caused by night grinding through the surface of the guard, relieves the pain and protects your teeth. So, make your night a comfortable one and experience the science of a better day.

Whitening Trays

Opalescence Go is the perfect option for patients who are looking for convenient, ready-to-go whitening. A professional whitening gel delivered in prefilled disposable trays. Opalescence Go features the enhanced UltraFit™ tray and can deliver dramatic results in as little as 15 minutes per day. The UltraFit tray sets Opalescence Go apart with its unique material that warms with the temperature of the body so that it comfortably molds and adapts to any patient’s smile for an even more effective and enjoyable whitening experience. With no impressions, models, or lab time required, Opalescence Go is the professional alternative to less-effective over-the-counter options and is an excellent introduction to whitening as well as a perfect follow-up to in-office whitening.
