Children are often scared of dentists but are at the same time even more vulnerable than adults for tooth decay. Having untreated tooth decay at an early age could lead to lifelong problems in permanent teeth so we place special emphasis on the dental needs of children. Our friendly team will ensure that your child receives the right treatment for all his needs. We regularly care for the dental needs of children as young as two years old. However, if you notice that your child has a problem with his or her teeth or gums prior to this age, please schedule an appointment. We call this a Happy Visit. Your child’s independent check-up at age three will involve a tooth-by-tooth inspection and periodontal exam. We will check for proper development, as well as tooth decay and other areas of concern.
As your child grows, he or she will need regular checkups to ensure optimal oral health. Our team will also teach oral homecare techniques so that your child can learn how to effectively brush and floss, with your help at first, then on his or her own. We may also recommend dental sealants or fluoride supplements.
Let us help your children learn the importance of optimal oral health from a young age. We will help you make the best choices for your child’s unique and precious personality.
