Your Child Deserves Expert Dentistry

Dr. Wihlm’s goal is to ensure that children access the best dental treatments available. While she administers most dental services for children in-office, she also relies on a team of dental specialists for certain procedures. If she finds your child will benefit from treatment with a specialist, she will refer you to them and help coordinate treatment.

It’s all about making sure that your child or teen receives superb dental care which supports optimal oral health and general health. 

At Wihlm Dental, we will ensure that your child learns the most effective oral hygiene practices. The importance of brushing and flossing will be outlined at appointments, in a way that your child will find easy to understand. Your child will be able to learn how long to brush for, why dental flossing is so beneficial and why regular check-ups are vital.

All information will be delivered with a positive, friendly spirit. At our office, we want children to learn to enjoy taking care of their own teeth. We want them to be proud of their beautiful smiles.

We believe in helping kids to build the right dental care habits, right from the very start.

Schedule Appointment

Dr. Wihlm and the American Dental Association recommend that a child should visit a dentist by age 1, or six months after a first tooth begins to show. We feel so strongly about establishing a dental routine at a young age that we don’t even charge for a child’s first dental visit if they are younger than 3 years old. A child’s primary teeth will usually start to erupt around six months of age. All children and teens should visit the dentist twice per year for check-ups and dental cleanings. More dental care may be needed, but this is the basic recommendation for good dental and oral health.

Now that you know more about pediatric dental services, why not contact our office today? We’ll schedule an appointment for your child at a time that fits your schedule. Our services are affordable and we accept many forms of dental insurance.

What Our Patients Have to Say

Winnie Jeffers

My experience was positive from beginning to end. I was able to fill out paperwork online before I arrived. Staff members were cordial and helpful. During my consultation, Dr. Wihlm gave me accurate and specific dental information related to my situation, while honoring my personal questions and concerns. As a new resident of Oshkosh, I am very happy to be able to take "find a new dentist" off my list.

Colleen Andres

Dr. Wihlm is a kind and caring dentist. My experience has always been pleasant. The staff is wonderful and friendly. I enjoy the small personal touches too, like a blanket and the massage feature on the chair.

My 1.5 year old had his first appointment today with the staff at Wihlm Dental.
From the moment we walked into the door, I felt extremely welcome! They knew my sons name without me even needing to tell them.
Dr. Wihlm ( personally and professionally) is an amazing person!
Her practice is 100% family friendly , and I will Recommend it to everyone!

Ryan Albers

The whole team at Wihlm is wonderful. My family and I always feel like we’re walking into a friends house when we go there. Hailey H is, hands down, the best hygienist I’ve ever had. I always recommend people go to Wihlm.
