Caring for your children’s teeth

The goal of our preventive pediatric care is to preserve the health of the teeth, detect any early signs of tooth decay, and reduce the risk for dental problems later in life.

The American Dental Association recommends a visit to a pediatric dentist to take place around the child’s first birthday, and every six months after that.

A typical visit to the dentist includes a thorough oral examination, a professional cleaning, and an update with the parents.

Parents have a significant influence on how well children care for their own teeth, so we take time to educate parents on how to teach their children proper brushing and flossing techniques.

Between the ages of two and three years, molars will begin to emerge. This can sometimes be painful for children but with proper treatment, the molars will develop correctly and without infection.

Dental work for the whole family

How to ensure a pleasant dental visit for your children

It is natural for some children to be nervous about their first dental visit, but you can prepare your child even before their first appointment to help them relax.

We recommend bringing your children with you to your own dental visits so that they can see the office and meet the dentist and staff.

During their first appointment, bring a favorite toy or stuffed animal, or perhaps an older sibling to accompany them. It helps to have people or things around that will make them feel comfortable.

What our patients are saying about us…




I have been going to Farnham and Farnham for over 20 years and they have been far superior in their care than anyone else I have ever gone to. In recent years the Farnham's son " Mac " joined the practice and you can truly say providing the best care possible is " in his blood ". The whole staff is working together as a wonderful team and I am very excited to know that my dental care is going to be the best available for many years to come. My wife and I have total confidence that providing care for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums is truly a mission for the Farnham practice! Please go there and find out for yourself!!

Since I will be 75 years old this year and my wife and I have moved over 15 times, I have had many dentists. Farnham & Farnham is the best by far. They are friendly, courteous, and professional. Dr. Mac is very thorough and explains all the options in a language I understand. Keep up the good work all of you at Farnham and Farnham.

Recently, both my wife and I completed another cleaning and check up. As always, everyone was professional and friendly! I was referred to Farnham Dentistry over a decade ago and have gone to nobody else since. The quality of care is always excellent! Kathy is my hygienist and she is absolutely awesome- professional, gentle and friendly- always makes me feel at ease. I was so disappointed to learn that your Office Manager, Kelli, is no longer with your company. Kelli was always friendly, extremely helpful and professional. We so much enjoyed her smile and warm greeting with each visit. She will be dearly missed!

Dr. Mack and his team are excellent. I had some dentistry and even a follow-up done at another office, but they didn't take care of my issue. Dr. Mack took the time to get things right and explain everything to me. I will be going back. Highly recommended!

Very caring and gentle. Also, Cathy the hygienist is the best I have run across. I have been going to this dental office since 1997. I highly recommend this dentist. "Mac" does a great job as did his father and mother who started the practice.

Doctor Farnham has done more for me in the 1st 15 minutes I met him than all of the Dentists have done for me in the last 10 years. There is no doubt my mind I will be using his services for the rest of my days.

I was so happy to find this office with such wonderful staff! When we moved to Florida we had difficulty with the larger dental groups and wanted to find a smaller more personal dental practice. We found it with Farnham and I have been so pleased with the customer service and care we have received. It's easy to schedule and appointments have been on time. The hygienists and doctor take their time and explain recommendations, etc. I would 100% recommend this office!

Dr. Mack is an awesome dentist and highly trained in his field. He is passionate about dentistry and truly cares about his patients as they are not just numbers to him. Dr. Mack goes the extra mile with his treatments and I never had a dentist that cares like he does. If you are looking for a great dentist that knows what he is doing, I would giving him a shot at whatever you dental needs are. There are hundreds of dentists in the Jacksonville area and I have been to a lot in my life time and I would recommend Dr. Mack to anyone! Also don't forget about cleanings, the hygienist is just as important as the dentist so you need to find a great one also, I found one at Dr. Macks office ask for Cathy. You don't need all the fluff out there at dental offices, you just need a dentist that cares and knows what they are doing!

My wife and I started with Farnham Dentistry back in 2002. Not only was the dental practice excellent, they were always up-to-date with the latest in equipment and procedures. Cleanliness was paramount and sanitary practices were evident. Office personnel were very cordial and always greeted you with a smile. The dental staff, technicians to dentists, were the best in their field.
