    "I got my smile back today! Thank you Dr. Hei for your masterful work I just can't stop smiling. I drive from Red Wing to see Dr Hei, he never judged me or made me feel ashamed of my genetically weak teeth and I have my confidence back. I highly recommend Filson, especially my family.

Family Dentistry

Family Dentistry Bayport | Family Dentistry At Filson Gentle Dentistry, our goal is to provide your family with all the services needed to achieve excellent oral health that lasts a lifetime. Family dentistry refers to dental care that includes general dentistry services and caters to patients of all ages, from baby to great-grandma. 

However, we don’t just provide your family with basic services like regular cleanings. Our doctors also have advanced training in advanced treatments like cosmetic dentistry and dental implants to provide you with a wide variety of services that address all your oral health care concerns. 

Gentle Care for Your Child 

There’s nothing that makes us happier than seeing a young child get a positive start on their dental care. We know that children need to be around a friendly dental team who provides them with the best possible experience to ensure a lifetime of healthy smiles.

We recommend that you bring your child to see us by their first birthday, when their dental development really takes off. Our “happy visits” are designed to put your child at ease so they can get to know us and become comfortable with the surroundings. Your child’s attitude dictates how their treatment will proceed, and we will never start treating your child if they’re not receptive.

We’ve provided generations of Bayport families with high-quality dental care for over 35 years. As parents ourselves, we take pride in giving our young patients the gentle care they deserve.

Comprehensive Family Services

Having a family dentist means no running around making appointments for yourself with one dentist and with another for your kids, parents, or other family members. Everyone can see the same familiar dentist, and we can even arrange family appointments on the same day, saving you from multiple trips. 

Cleanings and exams are essential for achieving the best possible oral health. Prevention is the most critical part of dental care. We can fix problems when they come up, but it’s much better for your oral health if these problems don’t occur in the first place.

We also offer a wide variety of general dental services, including treatments like cleanings and exams, fillings, root canals, and extractions. 

Building Long-Term Relationships

Trusting your family’s care to us means that we can start to build long-term relationships with you. We’ll get to know each member of your family so we can learn the best ways to address all your needs.

We don’t just provide great dental services, though. We’re friendly and compassionate and will make your family feel like a member of our family every time you visit.

Get the Care You Need When You Need It

Dental care shouldn’t be out of reach for anyone because of financial concerns. Most dental insurance covers the cost of basic services, especially for children. If you have questions about your specific coverage, we’ll be happy to help you find the information you need.

If you’re not insured, we’ve still got you covered. We offer several options for making your dental care affordable, including discounts for cash payments. 

Our Wellness Program is a reduced-fee dental plan that includes basic preventive services and provides discounts for many other treatments. We also offer CareCredit, an interest-free financing option that we can help you apply for at our office. 

If you’d like to learn more about family dentistry and how it can benefit you, please give us a call. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to Filson Gentle Dentistry!
