What is Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry is the field of dentistry that deals specifically with children’s dental care. Children will find pediatric dentistry to be more comfortable because it is geared specifically to their needs. We offer pediatric dentistry for babies, toddlers, children, and teens. Our goal is to provide their dental care in a warm, welcoming, and calm environment, with our staff fully dedicated to providing the best care.
Why might your child need Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric dentistry can help your child feel more comfortable when visiting the office. We provide procedures specific to kids, like sealants and fluoride treatments, as well as orthodontics. Our team works with your child to make their experience with us calm and inviting. We help to monitor your child’s dental development throughout their growth and check for signs of decay.
What are the benefits of Pediatric Dentistry?
If your child has had problems in the past with visiting the dentist, our office takes a completely different approach to their dental care. They will be welcomed into the office in a kid-friendly manner. We use child-safe terminology so that the appointment isn’t scary or confusing for them. We help to educate them on the best ways to take care of their teeth so that they grow up to have a full, healthy smile.
What can you expect during a typical Pediatric Dentistry appointment?
Your child will come into the office and be greeted by one of our staff members. A cleaning is done first to remove buildup from the teeth. Fluoride treatment is then applied to keep teeth healthy and strong. The doctor comes in and checks the teeth for signs of decay, as well as development. We can recommend a treatment plan if additional work is needed. Your child will leave the office with a clean, healthy smile, and will be scheduled for their next bi-annual appointment. We can schedule this appointment at at time when it is most convenient for you, and will contact you prior to the appointment to remind you when they need to come in.
If your child is in need of pediatric dental care, we are here to help schedule an appointment for them to be seen.
