  • My overall experience with LJ Dentistry has been wonderful. I've always been reluctant about going to the dentist in the past due to previous bad experiences with other dentist. I can honestly say at LJ Dentistry I've always had pain free excellent experiences. The entire staff makes you feel comfortable and at ease. The staff is also great with children. My daughter had no fear and enjoyed the interaction with the staff. They helped distract her by having her count her teeth. I highly recommend LJ Dentistry.

  • I would highly recommend lj dentistry, from the front desk to all the employees in back they are all very friendly. You can tell that each and every employee knows and cares about what they do. I have had cavities filled and a cap done and while the work was being done I felt no discomfort or pain. My family has been going here for years now and we highly recommend Dr. Jackson for your dental needs.

How to Make Brushing Fun

Children's Dentistry | Moline IL Dentist
Let’s call it the cranky phase. Let’s call it the “Mom, I don’t want to” stage. When kids are little, getting them to brush can be a challenge. They bite the toothbrush and eat the toothpaste.

My Child Is Getting Blood Blisters: Is This Normal?

Family Dentistry | Moline IL
Blisters in Children's MouthsThe “blisters” you are referring to are actually a normal part of losing baby teeth. Sometimes when teeth start to come through, children experience some bleeding under the skin, which typically causes small blisters or bruises on your child’s gums. The blisters, bluish in color, will disappear once the tooth comes through, and the tooth itself will still come through as it should.Even though they can look a little frightening at first, there is no treatment required to treat blisters, nor are these blisters preventable.
