Family dentist in Longview provides comfortable and effective care

Visiting a family dentist can make dental care more convenient and result in better dental care for the entire family. Dr. Karen E. Frazer welcomes patients of all ages in her Longview office, and she understands the changing needs of her patients as they go through life.

Infants and toddlers

Even before the first tooth comes in, infants need good oral care too. The gums should be cleaned gently with a soft damp cloth after feeding. Once that first pearly-white appears, or by the first birthday, your child should visit for an introductory exam. Dr. Frazer can advise parents on topics such as how to brush and floss those tiny teeth, the use of sippy cups and pacifiers, how to avoid baby bottle decay, and more.

School age children

Younger children need help brushing their teeth and with learning proper techniques for oral hygiene as they develop their motor skills. When they begin brushing and flossing their own teeth, it is still important to supervise and guide them. Tooth decay is the most prevalent disease in American children, but decay is preventable with good home care and regular dental visits. Dr. Frazer can guide your child in developing good oral habits now that can help him or her enjoy a healthier mouth for life.


Many teens have very busy schedules with school, sports, and social activities. They may have a tendency to rush through oral hygiene to get out the door faster. Junk foods, and acidic sports and energy drinks are especially popular with teenagers. This can be incredibly destructive to their dental health. Regular dental checkups and gentle coaching from parents and Dr. Frazer can help teens maintain good oral health through these whirlwind years.


Adults are still susceptible to tooth decay, and they are at a higher risk for gum disease as they age. Either of these conditions, left untreated, can wreak havoc on oral health. Smart food choices, healthy habits, and regular dental visits can lower the risk for significant dental problems. Dr. Frazer offers the preventive, restorative, and cosmetic services necessary to help adults enjoy beautiful, healthy smiles.

Visiting a family dentist is the most effective way to ensure that your entire family can enjoy optimal oral health. Call 903.753.3531, or stop by our office at 4407 Manchaca Rd, Longview, TX 78745 to schedule appointments for your family.
