Cloud Dental: W. Lindsay Cloud III, DMD
We know that you and your family are busy, and we want to make your dental care as easy and stress-free as possible. At Cloud Dental, we are happy to offer treatment for all members of your family, including your children, at one convenient location.
All our patients are part of our extended family, and we want you to be assured that we will always treat your family the way we would like ours to be treated. Dr. Cloud and our team have years of experience in providing gentle care for kids of all ages, and we know how to help them feel safe and secure. It’s important for your children to see visits to the dentist as fun and enjoyable so they don’t experience dental anxiety later in life.
Comfortable, Compassionate Care
It can be pretty intimidating for little kids to visit a dental office for the first time. They are suddenly seeing people they don’t know and looking at equipment that they’ve never seen before.
Young children each have their own unique personality and react differently to this situation, so we work hard to get to know them and meet them on their own level to help them feel completely safe and secure.
We recommend bringing your little ones in to see us at age three. The purpose of the first few visits to our West Little Rock dental office is to help your child get comfortable with our team and their surroundings.
During the first visit or two, we will gradually introduce your child to the idea of being in the dental chair. Since kids learn from their parents, we can give mom or dad a brief “exam” so they can see that there’s nothing to be afraid of. We won’t attempt any treatment until we are certain that they are comfortable with us.
Once your child is old enough, we can perform a dental exam and gently clean their teeth. Young kids often benefit from fluoride treatments to help protect their teeth and prevent cavities while their teeth are still healthy. Dr. Cloud can help you decide if fluoride is appropriate for your child.
Application of dental sealants is also another effective preventive treatment for children. Sealants are a thin coating of plastic that is applied to the surface of teeth that are deeply grooved, like molars. Dental sealants can significantly reduce the instance of cavities by preventing bacteria from damaging your child’s teeth.

At Cloud Dental, we are committed to serving your entire family with comprehensive, quality oral health care. That is why we go out of our way to make it easy for you to and your family to receive all routine dental exams and other necessary treatments right here in office.
