At Kewaskum Family Dentistry, we frequently recommend that children ages seven and older receive an evaluation for orthodontic treatment.

Hi there! Gibbs, here. If you haven’t met me yet, I’m the furry fellow who comes to the office sometimes to lend a helping paw. I absolutely love giving snuggles and getting love from all the patients who come to the office. Everyone makes it seem like they come for their oral health, but I know the real reason. It’s to see me! I even have patients who drive hours to see me. I’m kind of a big deal around here. Since I am so popular, I have started my own TikTok page, and I’m on my way to becoming a star!

We are truly honored that we have patients who travel such a far distance to receive dental treatment from our team.
