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.

Is your child afraid of the dentist?
If your child has never been to the dentist before, as a parent, you are probably worried that they may get dental anxiety. It is crucial that kids have a great experience when visiting the dentist, so for future visits, they are more comfortable. We take our time to explain things, in easy to understand language and in a playful way to make your child less nervous. We emphasize that cleanings and exams aren’t painful and that you, their parents, are right there if they need you.
When your child has an enjoyable experience at our dental office, they will look forward to returning, not dreading it. We’ve also had great success with helping children that do have dental anxiety overcome their fears. Our office is dedicated to patient care, for people of all ages.
We take of all your child’s dental needs
In addition to education, we also will perform a cleaning, apply a sealant, and sometimes a fluoride treatment. These services are excellent for people of all ages, but especially children that are still growing. The reason why cleanings and exams are so important is to prevent tooth decay. While their first set of teeth aren’t permanent, the longer these stay in place, the better. Losing baby teeth too soon can cause shifting to occur, which later will need correction with orthodontic treatments.
