Children’s Dentistry
Welcome to Dentistry for Children! We specialize in the pediatric dental treatment of children from birth through the teens, and focus on creating first smiles to straight smiles.

 

 

 

We are committed to providing exceptional primary care and comprehensive state-of-the-art (highest standard of pediatric dental care) dental specialty treatments for infants, children, adolescents and individuals with special health care needs.

 

 

Our goal

 

Our goal is to help all children feel good about visiting the dentist and teach them how to care for their teeth as their smiles grow. Our main concern is what is best for your child, so they leave with positive attitude toward dental care as they approach adulthood.

 

 

The very young, pre-teens, and teenagers all need different approaches in dealing with their behavior, guiding their dental growth and development, and helping them avoid future dental problems. The pediatric dentist is best qualified to meet these needs.

 

The first dental visit should occur within six months after the presence of the first tooth or by a child’s first birthday. Pediatric Dentistry places special importance in preventing tooth decay.  It is important to establish a Dental Home  for a child. This is because early oral examination aids in the detection of the early stages of tooth decay. Early detection is essential to maintain oral health, modify aberrant habits, and treat as needed and as simply as possible. Additionally, parents are given a program of preventative home care (brushing/flossing/fluorides), a caries risk assessment, information on finger, thumb, and pacifier habits, advice on preventing injuries to the mouth and teeth of children, diet counseling, and information on growth and development.
