Family Dentistry

Providing Exceptional Dental Care for The Entire Family in Salt Lake City

As your leading dental care professionals, Dr. Richard Barnes and Dr. Daniel Theurer, along with their compassionate team are committed to providing patients and their families with the quality dental care they deserve throughout Salt Lake City Communities. We at Highland Dental Center focus on prevention and education to help patients of every age achieve the long-lasting health, function, and beauty of smiles. 

Our family-friendly practice is equipped with the latest in dental technology to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment of any oral health concerns that may be present in the smile. 

The Importance of Early Prevention

The integrity of your child’s smile significantly impacts the future of their dental well-being. Although Drs. Barnes and Theurer see patients of all ages; they strongly urge parents or guardians to bring their young ones into our office as soon as the first tooth erupts. 

When properly cared for, healthy baby teeth contribute to strong permanent teeth and establish an optimal dental foundation for many years to come. This allows young patients to enjoy healthy, beautiful smiles well into adulthood. Without suitable at-home oral hygiene routines and consistent bi-annual dental visits, issues such as childhood caries, or cavities, can hinder your child’s developing smile. 

In addition to supporting your child’s dental health, visits and check-ups are essential in helping children and parents alike make positive oral health decisions. During appointments, our entire team takes a compassionate and gentle approach when examining your child’s dental anatomy as well as monitoring tooth development. We also conduct open and honest discussions about nutritional diets and at-home oral health care. 

Caring for Your Child’s Smile 

We continue to monitor your children’s smile as they grow, checking for signs of possible or underlying oral health issues. Our well-equipped dental office allows Dr. Barnes and Dr. Theurer to evaluate your children’s smile and determine if everything is developing correctly. 

 During their visit, our Salt Lake City dentists and hygienists implement compassionate and understanding through hands-on demonstrations as well as using kid-friendly language to make each experience enjoyable instead of anxiety-ridden. We want children to know we are their trusted allies for all things oral health and that they have nothing to fear. 

Dental Care for Adults and Seniors

As we age, it is not uncommon for smiles to display a worn appearance from many years of wear and tear. Complications such as decay, discoloration, damage, or trauma can affect both dental function and aesthetics.

Whether you or a loved one are looking to improve your overall oral health or enhance your natural smile, our team is here to make your aspirations a reality. Dr. Richard Barnes and Dr. Daniel Theurer can address a wide variety of oral health concerns through our tailored preventive, cosmetic, and restorative services. 

Committed to Long-Lasting Oral Health Through Patient Education

Most cases of dental anxiety and phobia can often be traced back to bad dental experiences during childhood or prior visits to other offices. By working in unison and making patients a part of every aspect of their treatment and by establishing proper communication, our entire team helps ensure that negative dental appointments are a thing of the past.

Dr. Barnes and Dr. Theurer make every effort to help you and your loved feel comfortable during every visit. We believe that educated, confident patients who feel at home in our dental office can be proactive with their oral health care, which contributes to long-lasting smiles and an improved quality of life.
