Starting your child out with good oral health habits is essential for a lifelong healthy smile. While brushing and flossing at home is the main way to ensure optimal health, children should begin seeing the dentist as soon as their first tooth arrives, or shortly after that. Pediatric dentistry covers all the vital services that children need to protect their ‘baby teeth’ and correct any problems that could arise as new teeth make their way to the surface.
Why Choose Soundview Family Dental for Pediatric Dentistry?
The choice in dentists is an important one. This is especially true when selecting a pediatric dentist. Your child’s first visit to the dentist can somewhat determine how they feel about every visit after. At Soundview Family Dental, our dentists, Dr. Kitts and Dr. Hewett, are attentive, caring, and make each of our patients feel right at home. We make your child’s visit fun, not scary. We will also give them instructions about caring for their teeth and gums, and why it is important so that they have the confidence to clean their teeth at home.

The Importance of Early Dental Care for Children
We walk your child through the steps to caring for their teeth, including brushing and flossing. Our dentists will familiarize them with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss so that they feel comfortable trying it on their own. For smaller kids under 5, having parental supervision is essential. You can guard against swallowing toothpaste and help them along the way with the proper brushing techniques.
