We believe in dentistry for the whole family and that includes your smallest members. Our office begins seeing children at a young age to promote a healthy foundation for great dental health right from the start, and we also work with parents on techniques and education so that they have the tools to succeed when it comes to oral care for their kids.
We believe all great dental health begins at home. That is why we work with parents to create a successful homecare regimen including brushing and flossing, avoiding sugary treats, and eating a good diet to promote healthy teeth and gums.
Your Child's First Visit
At your child’s first visit we will help familiarize them with our dental office so they feel completely comfortable. We will show them their teeth in the mirror, take them for a ride in the chair, take any necessary x-rays, and perform a cleaning and exam. We strongly recommend additional preventative treatments such as fluoride and sealants to keep your child’s teeth healthy and strong.
Dental sealants are made of clear coating that can be applied to your child’s teeth to prevent decay. We apply dental sealants to keep food and bacteria from settling in those grooves where brushing and flossing cannot reach. Dental sealants are far less expensive and less invasive than fillings.
Despite both your best efforts and ours, treatment could become necessary. We are always compassionate and gentle in our approach to treating children.
We know how important it is to make sure they are comfortable and do not experience dental anxiety. That is why, when we treat children, we speak to them in terms they will understand and let them know what we will be doing.
If you would like to schedule an appointment for your child, give us a call. We are happy to serve your entire family, and provide you with excellent, personalized dental care.
