Children need to see the dentist just like adults do. You can expect to take your child to their first dental appointment by their first birthday, or when their first tooth comes in. This will allow your child’s dentist to monitor the growth and development of their teeth and jaws, making timely treatment recommendations as issues arise.
You and your child can expect compassionate and personalized attention. We will take our time to help make sure your child feels comfortable in the dentist’s chair, explain every step of their appointment, and keep them calm and relaxed throughout their appointment. Our team is trained to treat children with a gentle and nurturing approach, and we will do everything we can to give your child the best possible experience.
Be sure to book regular checkups every six months, or as recommended by your child’s dentist. Keeping a regular preventive care regime will help keep your child’s teeth healthy and strong.
While young children are more prone to cavities than older kids and teens, it’s important to help them develop good habits. Teach your child to brush twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and to floss daily. Be sure to limit sugary foods, beverages, and snacks, as they can break down your child’s enamel and cause cavities. You can also prevent cavities by getting sealants applied to the surfaces of your child’s back teeth, sealing out cavity-causing bacteria.
