Dentist targets teens in need of dental care
Updated: 1/6/2010 7:00:01 PM

Dentist targets teens in need of dental care A dentist in Wilsonville, Oregon, has recently opened a new office specifically designed to make dental care more appealing to teenagers.

Dr Dustin James, who opened a pediatric dental office two years ago and filled it with electric trains, puzzles and toys, said his newer clinic aims to be more inviting to teens who wish to leave the childhood games behind them. James believes he operates the only teen clinic in the U.S, the Wilsonville Spokesman reports.

"There's no such thing as a teen practice," he told the news source. "We're providing the same level of care, and we're not charging any more. But we've invested in a level of experience teens traditionally don't get."

The teen-themed office assumes a 1950's theme with barstools, a jukebox, a Pacman table and a few modern additions including a counter filled with Apple computers and a wall of flat-screen TVs.

As pediatric dentists are trained to treat children up to 18 years old, James hopes the facility will help reassure the older half of his clientele.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 20 percent of preschool children, as well as 50 percent of third-graders and 86 percent of 17-year-olds, experience tooth decay.
