General & Family Dentistry

At Trunkey Dental, our passion is to provide superior dental care for your whole family. Dr. Trunkey has extensive experience working with adults and with children. He understands the different needs and desires of each age group and is leading his staff to meet each need. Adults desire the latest technology, informed doctors, and high-quality dental care. Children simply want to be comfortable and to be respected.

If you have children, it is helpful for you to begin making decisions about their dental care early in their life. If you bring your child to the dentist soon after their first tooth eruption or by their first birthday, Dr. Trunkey and his staff will begin to develop a relationship with your child before ever performing an exam or procedure on their teeth. This will help your child trust the dentist when it is time for dental work to be done. Our staff will also help you introduce and encourage healthy oral hygiene habits to your child at an early age.

Going to the dentist can much less intimidating when the same dentist treats all the members of your family.

As part of our preventive dentistry plan, we offer the following services:

  • Sealants
  • Professional cleanings (known officially as prophylaxis)
  • Fluoride treatments

Call today to set up a friendly meeting between your children and Dr. Trunkey and his staff. The foundation for a lifetime of healthy dental habits all begins with education and relationships. We are committed to providing superior dental care for the families of Bakersfield.
