Dr. Fuqua Helps Southlake’s Littlest Patients Care for Their Smiles
If you have a young child, you may be wondering when you should start bringing him or her to our Southlake office for regular visits.
We typically recommend starting at three years old. Or, you may even want to bring your little one along on one of your own appointments, just to help him or her become accustomed to what a dentist’s office is like. This is can do a lot to help children feel more comfortable when it’s their turn in the dental chair.
Your Child’s First Visit
One of the purposes of bringing your little one in at such an early age is so we can see how your son or daughter’s teeth are developing. We can do this with just a simple tooth-by-tooth inspection, which also lets us check for signs of decay or cavities.

Dr. Fuqua Helps Southlake Smile Again
You may already know that Dr. Fuqua offers general and preventative care at his Southlake office, but did you know he also specializes in prosthodontics?
An active member of the American College of Prosthodontists and a respected speaker, Dr. Fuqua can help if you have cracked, chipped, broken, or missing teeth. Using a combination of popular restorative and cosmetic therapies, Dr. Fuqua and his team can turn your smile around and give you the boosted confidence you deserve.
But Just What Is a Prosthodontist?
A prosthodontist specializes in replacing and restoring teeth. One of nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association, prosthodontics requires dental graduates to undergo three additional years of advanced training in an accredited program after receiving a DDS. And because prosthodontics is about rebuilding smiles, prosthodontists are artists as well as scientists, putting smiles back together to look and feel natural.
