Children’s Dentistry

FlossingChild1We enjoy working with our young patients and understand that they have different needs when visiting the dentist. We try not to push children so they end up fearful of the dental office. We encourage parents of young children to bring them to their routine visit so the child can see what happens at the visit, and become familiar with our staff and office.

The American Dental Association recommends that parents take children to a dentist no later than their first birthday. At that age we can begin to monitor the growth and development of their teeth and mouth, as well as answer any questions parents may have about caring for their children’s teeth. By age three or four, we are often able to perform a cleaning and fluoride treatment, as well as x-rays, if needed.

Proper oral hygiene at home is extremely important and needs to begin at a very young age. We take the time to instruct parents and children on proper brushing and flossing techniques so they can enjoy good oral health for a lifetime.

Our doctors have developed relationships with some excellent orthodontists in the area and can refer you and your child to an orthodontist if an exam reveals crowded or crooked teeth, or issues with the palate. We can help you choose the best orthodontist that meets the needs of your child.
