Family Dentistry

At Gilreath Family Dentistry in Marietta, we provide complete care for the entire family. In fact, that’s what our practice is all about. We offer general dental services, including pediatric dentistry for children general dentistry for teens and adults, and specialized care for elderly patients. Our doctors see patients beginning at age 3. However, if you would like a consultation for your child before age 3, we will be happy to see your child. For children, we are primarily concerned with developing good oral habits (brushing and flossing), evaluating and treating any decay, and monitoring development through the years. In many situations, it is helpful for children to have interceptive orthodontics using fixed appliances. These can be help to provide additional room for the teeth as the child is growing. We offer these services to our young patients!

Pediatric Dental Care

We know how precious your little ones are to you and we want you to know that we will make your children very comfortable in our office. With you, we help them implement habits that will stay with your child. We teach them to brush and floss correctly. We explain the importance of brushing every day. Most dental care for children can be accomplished at our office. We don’t use a heavy handed approach at all–we want your child to feel safe and comfortable in our office. We’ll use the latest techniques to take care of any cavities and we are there for you if your child has an accident and hurts his teeth. At each visit, we’ll monitor their development and provide excellent care. And of course, we offer a prize for being such a great patient.

Dental Treatment for Adolescents and Teens

As your child develops into the tween and teenage years, it becomes even more crucial that good hygiene habits are formed. This is the time where plaque accumulation becomes more prevalent and gingivitis (the early stage of periodontal disease) starts. We continue to provide treatment for any cavities that develop and will help you continue to implement good oral care. We continue to provide good oral hygiene instructions and apply sealants to molars and sometimes premolars. A sealant is a thin plastic coating that seals the grooves of teeth. This is the area where fluoride does not work very well. The sealants are typically completed when the permanent teeth have come into the mouth. They are easy to do, don’t hurt and can provide excellent cavity prevention for your loved one.

This is also the time that most patients have orthodontic treatment. We offer our teenage patients traditional braces (wires and brackets) and we offer Invisalign®Teen, an orthodontic service designed specifically for teenagers. For many teenage patients, Invisalign® Teen has a significant benefit. The patient can remove the aligners while eating and brushing. These keeps the teeth from become stained because of poor brushing habits, which unfortunately is a very common thing with traditional braces. For patients who need treatment that cannot be accomplished using Invisalign® Teen, we work closely with several excellent orthodontists in the area and will refer your child as necessary. However, the young person must be extremely responsible, because if you don’t wear the appliances, the teeth don’t move. We’ll help you make the best decision in terms of which type of orthodontics to use for your child.

One of the benefits of doing your orthodontics with our practice, is that we typically see the children on a regular basis for dental care and we know your child, so we are able to closely monitor their cleaning habits and help them keep their braces clean. This will help alleviate permanent staining that can occur with poor hygiene. With your permission, we offer additional fluoride services and even additional cleanings throughout the orthodontic treatment time.

After every orthodontic patient has completed treatment, we fine tune the look of the teeth. This is a combination of services including evaluation and subtle refinement of the bite, tooth length and contour evaluation and refinement and white spot removal. White spots can form when teenagers are in braces but their cleaning habits are not great. The spots can be often be removed or made to look better using special technique called ICON, that won’t hurt the teeth or require anesthesia or drilling. In addition, we always use post-ortho refinement to evaluate the shade or the teeth as well as the texture, smoothness and reflectiveness and to provide corrections to any of these characteristics if necessary.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
