As a family dental practice in Salem, we prioritize making dental care a fun and positive experience for our patients, no matter how old or little they are.
We want to ensure that you have as comfortable of an experience as possible, which is why our office is equipped with a range of amenities, we supply sedation for all of our treatments to put you at ease, and we offer a children’s playroom and a photo booth to pass the time while you wait for your appointment.
A family dentist’s job is to provide general dental care for patients of all ages, communicate with children in an easy-to-understand and child-friendly way, and be your reliable dental home no matter what your dental needs are. Enjoy the convenience of booking simultaneous or back-to-back appointments for your entire family.
We offer dental care to patients at any stage in life and we know just what to look for in terms of prevention and early detection during these different life stages. With routine checkups and cleanings, we can prevent tooth decay and gum disease from ever forming.
We can screen you for oral cancer so you can be on the lookout for warning signs as early as possible. If you suffer from a dental injury or develop oral health problems, we can repair your teeth with restorative dentistry.
From fillings and root canals to tooth restorations, we can restore damaged teeth or completely replace them. Brighten your smile with teeth whitening treatments and fill in chips and cracks with dental bonding.

Your child’s very first dental appointment makes a huge impression on them for the rest of their life. Negative experiences can cause your child to make negative associations with going to the dentist, leading to intense fear and anxiety.
This is why at We Care Dental, we specialize in communicating positively and simply with children. We offer tooth-colored biocompatible fillings, zirconia crowns, dental sealants, dental bonding, and in emergencies, extractions.
Young children are at a higher risk for developing cavities and once they become more active around the age of 12, they are at a much higher risk for dental trauma. This is why it’s important to have a reliable dentist on hand for dental emergencies. Aside from providing routine preventative care for your child, we can also look out for hereditary oral health problems that present in parents.
